Hi! My name is Judah, although I go by a number of nicknames given to me by all the people that love me. Welcome to my page.

I was born on September 10th, 2012, and on my first full day alive, September 11th, my pediatrician noticed a funny sound in my heart, a murmur. A little investigation led the doctors to find out that I have a rare congenital heart defect called Truncus Arteriosus. I was quickly rushed away to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and the pages that follow document my stay at the Hospital, as well as all the nice doctors and nurses I met there, all the love and support given from my family and friends, and my progress through heart surgery, recovery, and life in general.
