Taking the world by storm: keeping up with Ari Schultz
When Ari Schultz’s parents, Mike and Erica, learned that their soon-to-be born son had fetal critical aortic stenosis (blockage of a valve in the left ventricle of his heart) they were devastated but determined to help him the best they could. So they came to Boston Children’s Advanced Fetal Care Center (AFCC), which performed two fetal cardiac interventions on Ari in-utero, making him the only person in the world to have two successful cardiac interventions pre-birth. Ari was then brought into the world and continued treatment at Boston Children’s.
Since learning about Ari’s heart condition at 18 weeks gestation, Mike has been writing a blog, echoofhope.org, to keep family and friends up to date on his son’s condition. But Mike’s writing is different than what you find on most patient blogs; he approaches this serious and scary topic with humor. By writing funny, first-person accounts of life through Ari’s eyes, Mike gives his son a voice and personality unlike any other baby, and a much needed smile to people close to Ari and his family. We appreciated his style so much we asked him to write a piece just for Thriving. Read more.
