Hello, my name is Ginser.
Ginther is the wildest little boy I know.
He is on the road.
When he was born, perfect. Like any other little baby I’ve ever seen, I guess.
Healthy 8 lbs, 4 oz.
I like to play pitcher and first base.
Through the experience of hundreds of thousands of cardiac diagnoses, procedures, innovations and research collaborations over the past 100 years, Mayo Clinic is able to help provide patients like Kinser and his family with reliable Answer.
A chest X-ray showed that his heart had enlarged a bit, which they said was related to the heart.
They took him into the cardiac intensive care unit , did a whole bunch of tests, and, I would say, within a few hours , we knew where the problem was. He was diagnosed with transposition of the great arteries.
What they do is arterial conversion surgery.
Well, when I was five days old, I had heart surgery.
I had a younger brother in Rochester when I was a year old who actually had heart surgery. You know, in the 70s, things weren’t as advanced as they are today. He didn’t make it, you know. He lived to 13 days. That’s all I can think of – oh my gosh, I’m going to lose my baby.
Both my parents had heart surgery at Mayo. We know he is in the best place. If it weren’t for them, he wouldn’t be here.
To me, he can do whatever he wants. Be a kid.
He did a great job.
I just tried doing a backflip from the board and I did it. Wow, it’s fun.
He is my little friend.
When I grow up, I want to take over my dad’s job. They saved my life.
