On December 5, 2006 our little miracle, Trevor Colbert, entered into the world at 12:37pm, weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz. A handsome boy, with big, brown eyes, but with a challenging life ahead of him as he was born with a rare and complex congenital heart defect, Double Inlet Left Ventricle, Hypoplastic Right Heart. Basically, his heart has three of four chambers that function as half a heart.
Within minutes after his birth he was whisked away to the NICU where he would spend his first 33 days of life. At a week old he underwent his first open heart surgery and then again, at almost five months of age, he had his second open heart surgery on April 20, 2007.
Trevor has had a few bumps in the road, but overall, he continues to inspire us with his strength, energy, and happiness in life and our hearts will be forever changed. He is a fighter and has overcome all sorts of odds in his short life. Trevor will undergo his third open heart surgery on May 17, 2011. We cherish every day that we have our precious boy and hope his special heart will last for many, many more years.
