The surgery will strengthen the valve between the esophagus and stomach, which stops acid from backing up into the esophagus easily. We hope the surgery can be videoscopic, which is less invasive with a quicker recovery time. If left untreated, it can cause ulcers and narrowing of the esophagus.
We'll keep everyone updated on how Lucy is doing and if she is able to have the surgery.
Lucy Kate Hopkins
This is the story of Lucy, delivered 10 weeks premature, weighing only 2lbs. She was born with Downs Syndrome and multiple congenital heart defects, spending 75 days in the NICU. She has underwent two open heart surgeries in August 2009 and June 2010 to repair her Atrioventricular (AV) Canal Defect, Ventricular septal defect, double outlet right ventricle, mitral valve and extra superior vena cava. We hope she touches your heart as much as she has touched ours.
