What happens when your entire world is defined by hospital walls and medical jargon? On "Heart to Heart with Anna," we share the poignant and raw journey of James Robinson, a father who walks us through the emotional highs and profound lows of raising his son Nadav, who was born with a congenital heart defect known as single ventricle heterotaxy. James recounts the myriad surgeries, complications like asplenia, and the heart-wrenching impact of eventually losing Nadav. This episode offers deep insights into the resilience required to face such relentless challenges and the indelible way it shapes family identity and daily life.

Explore the extraordinary resilience of families navigating medical crises. Genetic testing unveiled a unique mutation in the H5 gene carried by both parents, prompting profound reflections on fate and family dynamics. James shares invaluable strategies for maintaining family connections during prolonged hospital stays, emphasizing the importance of honesty and openness. The emotional journey reveals lessons about life, love, and humanity learned through the lens of a family's extraordinary experience with severe health issues.

Finally, we highlight the vital role of the hospital ecosystem in preserving humanity. Through heartfelt anecdotes, James discusses the indispensable support from nurses, therapists, and other professionals who added depth and compassion to Nadav's care. This episode also explores the lasting impact of connecting with a community of adult congenital heart disease survivors, offering solace and continuity for those affected. Join us for a compelling and heartfelt conversation that underscores the power of shared experiences and the transformative strength that love and community bring in times of profound adversity.
