As soon as Eliana was born, she was placed in the natal ICU for two weeks for monitoring. She was sent home when they couldn’t come up with a definitive answer for her health problems. As a family, they saw a number of medical professionals before they were given a pediatric pulmonary hypertension diagnosis at six months old. Eliana is now 11 years old and her parents explain what her life is like.
