Heart surgery at four days old

Ronin was born with Transposition of the Great Arteries and also diagnosed with foetal closure of the ductus arteriosus. Born at 35 weeks gestation after an emergency caesarean, the team from The Royal Children’s Hospital were there for his birth at the Royal Women’s Hospital. He was placed on ECMO within the hour and had his life saving heart surgery at 4 days old. There were ups and downs through his time in the Rosella ward and Koala ward. Without this amazing hospital and it’s very valuable and amazing team our son may not be thriving like he is today! Thank you to all!
