Johnny was born with Tracheal Esophageal Fistula (TEF) and with amniotic band restriction on some digits on his hands and feet. We consider him lucky as ABS could have affected whole limbs.
Compared to the TEF the ABS seems like nothing, only cosmetic — Johnny is perfect in our eyes. As Johnny gets older other kids are starting to ask about his fingers and toes and they are pointing it out to him.
John and I can only hope to instill in him the importance of what’s on the inside and that everybody is different and should never be judged by the outside. There will always be people who make fun because they don’t understand as he gets older but I hope he is even stronger than he already is because of it. My amazing Mighty Mouse❤️
