 WAXHAW, N.C. - T.J. Olsen was born with a heart defect, known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

The condition forced T.J. into surgery during the first week of his life.

Four months later, he's home spending time with twin sister Talbot, big brother Tate and his parents, Greg and Kara Olsen.

T.J. faces further surgery in April, but his chances of living a normal life have greatly improved, thanks to the work of the medical staff at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte. Doug Kufner has the story.
