We still remember the days which you made most beautiful with everlasting Charming smile. We still remember the innocent face of yours. But now all the happiness of ours is just gone.
Jashwanth is a 6 months old baby who is fighting against severe obstruction of cardiac  Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC). Jashwanth was already undergone an open heart surgery in care Banjara hills hospital but still he situation is not normal because the first attempt was almost failed, he is need to have open heart surgery again. 
TAPVC means In total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (drainage, return), the pulmonary veins that bring oxygen-rich (red) blood from the lungs back to the heart aren’t connected to the left atrium. Instead, the pulmonary veins drain through abnormal connections to the right atrium.
What causes it?
In most children, the cause isn’t known. Some children can have other heart defects along with TAPVC. How does it affect the heart?
In the right atrium, oxygen-rich (red) blood from the pulmonary veins mixes with low-oxygen (bluish) blood from the body. Part of this mixture passes through the atrial septum (atrial septal defect) into the left atrium. From there it goes into the left ventricle, then into the aorta and out to the body. The rest of the blood flows through the right ventricle, into the pulmonary artery and on to the lungs. The blood passing through the aorta to the body doesn’t normal amount of oxygen, which causes the child to look blue.
How does TAPVR affect my child?
Symptoms may develop soon after birth. In other children, symptoms may be delayed.
This partly depends on whether the lung veins are blocked as they drain toward the right
atrium. Severe obstruction of the pulmonary veins tends to make infants breathe harder
and look bluer (have lower oxygen levels) than infants with little obstruction.
