Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you to someone very special to me. She has worked many many hours to keep my little man alive. This woman is so very dear to my heart, and I know that she feels the same way about my son. Since all of you care so much about us, I thought you should know the woman behind all of the magic.
Cardiology (Pediatric), Advanced Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation
"Pediatric Cardiology is the most rewarding field of medicine I can imagine. The ability to help a child by providing the very best quality of medical care, support a family through a difficult time, and teach the next generation of doctors to do the same is a great pleasure and privilege."
Dr. Armsby specializes in caring for children with heart problems. She has advanced training in interventional cardiology (procedures which treat heart disorders and in many cases replaces heart surgery) and heart transplantation.
Before coming to OHSU, Dr. Armsby worked as an interventional cardiologist and heart transplant specialist at one of the busiest Children’s Hospitals in the country. She moved to Oregon to spend more time with her husband, a pediatrician, and her three children. Despite finding a greater opportunity to balance her work and life here in Oregon, she remains committed to providing the children she cares for with the highest quality of care.
So Laurie, if you ever read this, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. If it weren't for you, my beautiful little boy wouldn't be here today. I owe you everything! Thank you SO much for caring so much about us. Thank you so much for your loving heart and your free spirit. There is no one in this world like you and I thank God every single day that you came to work here when you did. All of your hard work has paid off and we are so lucky and thankful to have you. (I don't think I can say that enough) We love you!!
