During his lifetime, one Massachusetts little boy has undergone three open heart surgeries. Two of which happened before he was even born.
Four-year-old Ari Schultz has congestive heart failure, which has caused him to spend much of his short life in a hospital. However, the young boy is finally getting the chance to have a normal childhood out of the hospital after doctors found him a donor heart.

Parents Erica and Mike feared this day might never come, but doctors finally told them the good news after 221 days on a waiting list. And when it came time to tell Ari, they decided to film the special moment and shared it online.
“Good! So I can go home tomorrow?” said the excited little boy, who was mostly concerned with where the heart was going to go, how long until he could go home, and if he’d still be able to play baseball.

“If praying is what you do, now is the time, for Ari, and for Ari’s donor and family. We’ve been thinking about them, their sacrifice, their sorrow, and their immense kindness non-stop. And will every day for the rest of our lives,” Erica wrote.

Ari has since had the surgery, and his surgeons explained that everything went well. “The new heart is in and beating. They finished surgery in the wee hours of the morning and so far Ari is doing well. His chest is still open and he will be paralyzed and sedated for days. He has a long road ahead of him but today begins the journey and now we take it one day at a time,” Erica wrote in an update.
