When she was two years old, Nina Wheeler was rushed to the emergency room because she was turning blue. An X-ray revealed that she had been born with an enlarged heart. Nina had a severe heart murmur and lived her life constantly short of breath. For close to forty years, she searched for the missing piece of the puzzle that would explain why she perpetually felt as if someone was holding her underwater. In 1998 as she sat in her rocking chair holding her newborn daughter, Nina knew she had to say goodbye to her and undergo open heart surgery. Her time was drawing short and her heart was failing fast. How could she possibly say goodbye to her daughter when she had struggled so hard to have her? Amazingly, Nina survives the surgery and even more incredibly, goes on to have a second beautiful and healthy daughter. However, her story and medical battles are far from over.
