Baby gets heart surgery in Cayman

A Belizean mother and child were featured in an online video in the Cayman Islands a few days ago. The baby, Grayson Reneau received heart surgery at Health City Cayman Islands Hospital. According to the mother, Jamie Lord, he was born with a heart murmur and specialists in Belize diagnosed him with a heart defect which required surgical intervention.With the help of several charities, Health City Cayman Islands agreed to perform the surgery. Here’s a look at how the surgery went.

Jamie Lord, Mother of Grayson Lord: “Grayson was born with a heart murmur and at two months normally it would grow out however his did not and we attended an interview with some specialists that went to Dangriga in Belize and they diagnosed him with Tetralogy of Fallot and said that he would require surgery.

Dr.Binoy Chattuparambil, Clinical Director: “There are four problems inside the heart. It’s again blue baby with two holes inside the heart, one of the valves was not developed and the pipe that carries blood to the lung was really narrow and the right side of the heart was really thick wall. Two pipes that come from the heart, one is supposed to come from the left side and one is to come from the right side- instead of that both came from one side.

Jamie Lord, Mother of Grayson Lord: Ours was funded by Gift of Life Belize along with Gift of Life Tampa and the Rotary Club of Belize and what they do is when they see you need to do a surgery Mrs. Yvette Burkes who is in charge of the Gift of Life she started to send our cases to different hospitals and writing them and Health City was one of them and they have accepted us to do the surgery.

Dr.Binoy Chattuparambil, Clinical Director: We had to do a lot of the plumbing work to get the right pipe from the right chamber and close the hole so that the one chamber will pump into the one pipe. He is fully cured now, he will not have any trouble in his life, like any other baby he will grow and have all the activities, he will play with his friends. He is doing very good.

Jamie Lord, Mother of Grayson Lord: I needed to be strong for him and stay positive and focused and with the help of a group of Belizens who are here and who live on Cayeman they were here for me and everybody had been supportive and sending love and prayers so I think that is what kept me strong and positive throughout the whole time and when I saw Dr.Binoy come in and he told me that Grayson is okay and everything went well I was so happy I just started crying and I hugged him and everything and he was so nice and warm.”

Tetralogy of Fallot, also known as TOF, is relatively rare, occurring in about five of every 10,000 births. Although this heart defect has been recognized for 120 years, the exact cause is still unknown.
