This little trooper suffers stroke, 9 heart surgeries, resuscitated 3 times—overcomes them all!

This extraordinary little baby boy at one week of age miraculously defied the slim 30% chance of surviving Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He overcame multiple grueling open heart surgeries, suffered a stroke, and was resuscitated three times – demonstrating an astonishing will to live!

For Chris and Ashton Hodge Stevens, from Hartlepool, England, expecting a baby was exciting news. The young couple were incredibly happy at this new development and quickly started to make plans for their baby’s arrival.

Yet there was something in store for them which would cause them great anxiety–after the first ultrasound, it was found their baby boy was suffering from Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, or HLHS, meaning the left side of his heart was incompletely formed.

Little Jack Stevens would have to undergo multiple surgeries on his heart from the time he was born.

Little Jack only weighed 4 pounds at birth which made him unfit for an operation. In order to save his life, surgeons had to proceed with the Norwood procedure, which consists of three stages of operations on the heart to improve blood flow. Jack Stevens was only one week old.

“It was really difficult watching him lying in his hospital bed for so long, surrounded by machines and tubes,” Jack’s father, Chris, told the Daily Mail.

Chris Stevens, 30, said, “He’s been through so much in such a short space of time but he’s doing brilliantly…But we knew it was best for him and he’s battled through everything – he’s a real fighter.”

Jack was eventually released from the hospital after 15 months but returned back to Freeman Hospital, Newcastle, three months later after suffering a stroke. He then endured 5 operations but now is finally at home with father Chris, and mother, Ashton Hodge, who is a charity worker.

Jack’s initial development was slowed down, but now he is catching up really fast. Mr. Stevens, who works as an engineer, said, “It’s a lifelong condition so he will need a transplant at some point in his life but surgeons don’t know when yet. He’ll never be able to do any real physical activity.”

This little chap’s heart is 24 karat gold. “We’re both so proud of him – he’s very inspirational,” said his parents. 

Well, it seems we can honestly say, “Jack is nimble, Jack is quick, Jack got over his troubles real quick!” Thanks for the smiles, Jack!
