It will take some time to truly know if Lucy requires the Nissen surgery, after we get milk and food back into her belly. She would have a gastric emptying study and an upper G.I. before we would proceed further with any surgery.
But all was not wasted while we were in the hospital. Lucy is now only on 1 liter of oxygen and tolerating it well. We hope to have her off of oxygen and one more toobie free by the end of summer.
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.
