My Story

Hello, I’m Stephanie and I had open heart surgery at age 2 to repair a TGV, PDA and VSD. I am now 46-years-old, married with a grown son. I have not had any other surgeries concerning my heart and no Pacemaker. I lived a normal childhood and graduated high school. I have always worked outside the home. I thank Nationwide Children’s Hospital for caring for me and a SPECIAL thanks to Dr Jo Craenen. I now follow up at OSU with Dr. Daniels.
