Atrial Septal Defect
Most of you know that Woody has Down Syndrome and that is very much part of his special little personality and what makes him Woody! What you might not know is that he also has an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), a congenital heart defect where he was born with a little hole in the walls of his heart and some other heart issues that mummy refers to as 'funky plumbing'!
Congenital Heart Defects are rare, but common among children with Down Syndrome, in fact, about 50% of infants with Down syndrome have some form of heart condition. With proper care and early intervention, kids with heart defects will live a happy and healthy life.
