January 21, 2012 we found out we were Pregnant again with our 3rd Baby Girl, who we named Trinity Aurora Hranek, and she is due on September 16, 2013. During our 3rd Ultrasound they didn't get a good picture of Trinity's Heart so we had to go to our Wilson Hospital, in Johnson City, NY for another Ultrasound. They saw something they didn't like this time, and sent the DVD of the Ultrasound to Syracuse NY. They called us 2 days later and told us there was something wrong with Trinity's Heart, and that we needed to come to Syracuse for an Echocardiogram. So last Wed June 19, 2013 we got the worst news of our lives that Trinity Aurora had Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome... This meant that her hearts left side, the Left Ventricle and Aorta didn't fully develop. So we will have to go to Syracuse, Rochester, or Buffalo to deliver her in Sept. Until then we will have to start going to Syracuse every week for tests.
We just got some amazing news today from AmeriCord and got to talk to the President Dr. Draker, who told my wife Kimberly and I that he will cover all the costs of the banking process... he will even be the one doing the sample. He is also good friends with our Cardiologist Dr. Nader and told us he will keep in touch with him and wants us to plan on having a C-Section 2 weeks before our due date Sept. 16th. He also wants to try injecting Trinity's Stem Cells into her heart to see if it will finish developing before they try the normal surgery process.
We have a page on www.giveforward.com The link to our Benefit page for Trinity is on on our Face Book Page for her: www.facebook.com/TrinityAuroraHranek
