During a routine ultrasound, a doctor realized something was not right with Remington’s heart. Remington’s mother was directed to get an echocardiogram at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for further evaluation. After the echo was performed, Remington’s parents were informed that their unborn daughter had a critical congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).
The remainder of the pregnancy was transferred to Children’s Mercy for additional echocardiograms to monitor her condition.
During one of the echocardiograms, a doctor noticed complications and decided Remington needed to be delivered.
