Garrett's Story
By: Tamara Deiro

On August 21, 2001, Garrett was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Orange, located on the same campus as CHOC. The nurse noticed a heart murmur and called our pediatrician, Norah Gutrech, M.D., who immediately ordered an echocardiogram, a test that can help determine the sizes of the heart chambers to see if there is a strain on the heart. Shortly after the test was finished, CHOC pediatric cardiologist Mike Rebelledo, M.D., came into my room and explained to my husband and I that Garrett had a quadruple heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot, a complex congenital heart defect that occurs in about two out of very 10,000 live births. Garrett would need surgery.
