'He can be a real baby now'

'He can be a real baby now' | KOMO News - Seattle, Washington | Local & Regional:

"Cody was just six months old when doctors diagnosed him with Williams syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes heart and vessel problems.

Local doctors had done all they could for the baby, but his parents found a doctor in Cleveland who thought he could do more. So they took off across the country, banking on a chance.

'There's not always a good outcome but there's a chance and that's what we're hoping on is that chance,' said Mitchell.

And that chance paid off. Cody underwent surgery on April 27 and spent a couple of weeks in the hospital.

'He pulled through really well and they were able to open up quite a few of the arteries,' Mitchell said."
