Baby Maya Was Diagnosed With Tricuspid Atresia

Cory Wharton shared that his daughter Maya was diagnosed with tricuspid atresia at birth. According to the CDC, this is a heart defect where the valve controls the blood flow to the rest of the body. In Maya’s case, her condition significantly impacts her lung function.

Recently, Cory Wharton updated his page sharing a bit of a scare they had with Maya. According to him, Maya was struggling to get enough oxygen and they called an ambulance. Given her condition, her normal oxygen levels are 75-85%.

He went on to say that you could see in her eyes how scared she was, sharing a photo of her with an oxygen mask in the ambulance. The family was able to leave the hospital once Maya’s oxygen levels stabilized.

Even though that may seem pretty grim, the Teen Mom stars are enjoying every little moment they can. Wharton shared a video on his Instagram Story of baby Maya enjoying 70-degree weather, grinning into the camera.
