Denmark family puts face on Medicaid debate
DENMARK - Watching 6-year-old Steve Warpinski play T-ball, you'd never guess that just three years ago he was heading into an operating room for his third open heart surgery.
He was born in September 2010 with five congenital heart defects. Doctors discovered the life-threatening conditions 20 weeks into his mother Molly Warpinski's pregnancy and immediately referred her to specialists at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
"Our biggest concern was the fear of the unknown," she said. "We never really knew how severe his issues would be, and that's something no parent ever wants to feel or experience."
