Our Family’s Battle Against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

My experience with CDH is my first son who will be 14 in March of 2008 was diagnosed with a left Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. It was the scariest time of my life. The first surgery didn’t go very well so not even a month later he had reopened and the doctor didn’t know what was going on so they kept giving him constipation meds and nothing was working they finally did an Xray where they had done surgery before and found out it had reopened and then his body was rejecting the surgical materials. It was such a long hard process.

Today he is doing really well hasn’t had surgery in a few years. He has been trying to have a normal childhood but he really can’t keep up in sports or gym. So we have gotten him into hunting witch has been really good for him. I am a single mommy of 6 beautiful babies and my cherub baby is the oldest. Being a cherub family has taught me never to give up or take anyone for granted. Taught me to cherish my family and time with them more.

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) is a birth defect that occurs when a baby’s diaphragm (a thin sheet of muscle that separates the abdomen from the chest) fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs to enter the chest cavity and prevent lung growth.

CDH occurs in approximately 1 in 2500 births, with over 1600 babies diagnosed each year in the United States alone. There is currently no known cause, but studies have suggested that it is likely due to a number of genetic and environmental factors.
