Keokuk baby living with hypoplastic left heart syndrome
Baby Aiden is described by his parents as being a happy baby boy living in Keokuk, Iowa.
In his fourteen months of life he has undergone three major heart surgeries.
Aiden was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome which means he was born with only the right side of his heart.
(HLHS) is a birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart.
During pregnancy, the left side of the heart does not fully develop.
Aiden's parents want to share his story and raise awareness about the birth defect.
There are still several surgeries Aiden will have to undergo in the near future.
