Max, now seven years-old, was born with a congenital heart defect known as tetralogy of Fallot. Max underwent surgery to replace a pulmonary heart valve.  A statement from the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles indicated that the replacement valve will last ten or fifteen years.

May the Force be with you, Max!
