Lucas Rowbury, age 9

My name is Lucas. I am the oldest of 5 kids, I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. I love Legos, reading and playing basketball with my friends. When I was born I immediately turned blue. The doctors told my parents that I had Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). At 6 days old I had open heart surgery, an arterial switch, to fix my heart. I was in the hospital for almost a month. I went home and had a feeding tube, a picc line and was on lots of medicines. I am really lucky, I haven't had to have more than one surgery. I see a doctor every other year and have to be careful about which sports I play. I love having a "zipper scar" to show everyone!
