Chanel Ashton Fulton was born on January 6th 2010. Four days after she went into shock and was taken to Lovelace hospital on Ellison where she was then transferred to Lovelace women’s hospital. Dr. William Burman pediatric cardiologist discovered that she only had half of her heart and that the left side of her did form. We were then life flighted to the children’s hospital in Aurora CO. 12 days later Chanel underwent her first of 3 open heart surgeries called the Norwood. Her recovery went well until she got RSV so we lived in the hospital for two months, she was then released to the Ronald McDonald house for two weeks then home. When she was 4 months old she became jaundice do to a cyst on her bile duct so we where life flighted to the children’s hospital again to have the cyst removed, thos was a two week stay.
