Teri Age 30 Boston Ma I was born with Hypoplastic Right Heart, Pulmonary Artesia with Intact Ventricular Septum and moderate Tricuspid Artesia. After every surgery I feel a bit lost, like a snow globe that was just shaken and the chaos of all the white snow is covering up the scene inside. I guess that is how I feel, this winter I hibernated, made myself an igloo and now I am out ready to face the snow. I need to take time to really figure out what my scene looks like now. Even after all the battles I have faced, I still get lost in the act of trying to save my life I somehow loose who I was before it. Long after the battle wound have healed I am still faced with the idea I made it through another surgery and now I will never be the same. Just like one more scar to add to my body it is one more piece of me I need to find because who I was before is no longer there. Victory is always sweet but it too has a price to pay. No one said living with CHD would get easier, I think it just get harder but life's simplicities seem even more rewarding with each passing day.
