A game

This is an artist's (Evan's surgeon) rendition of Evan's heart at birth.
This is an artist's (me) rendition of a heart.

How many differences can you find? I will post the answer later and discuss how unique my son really is. The Answer

Well, from the drawings I'm guessing he's missing his right ventricle entirely, or at least the right and left ventricles are fused into one. Which means oxygenated and deoxygenated blood are mixing, reducing the amount of oxygen available to the body.

What remaining surgeries does Evan have? Do they plan to do any reconstruction?

A friend of mine has a 2 yr. old daughter who was born with a heart similar to that first picture. She's already been through two surgeries and may need more later. Luckily, so far everything has been fine and her prognosis is very, very good.
