We are expecting a baby boy,Abel Robert Nesbitt on May 6th 2013.When we went to find out if he was a boy or girl we were informed of a heart issue and sent to a specialist.After many more tests and ultrasounds it was determined he has a Right Ventricular Diverticulum.A rare heart defect only affecting 7 children to date.We are now attending doctor appointments once a week,sometimes twice and have met with multiple doctors to discuss the outcome and to monitor our situation very closely.The goal is to make it at close to the due date so he will be stronger for delivery and surgery as soon as he is born.He's a fighter and as of now we have been lucky that nothing has gotten any worse.We were told to be cautious as for if the fluid expands or the diverticulum ruptures it could be fatal to little Abel.The doctors dont know what the exact outcome will be and its a very scary waiting game for our whole family,I myself Samantha,father Kevin,sister Alexis and brother Dexter,not to mention his grandparents,aunts,uncles and cousins. We are in need of help for all the traveling expenses and bills bulding up due to extra money being paid out towards many hospital trips.Anything and everything will help.Thank you all in advance for anything or any support.
