Healthy Heart Club, Update 1
They often say that life isn't fair and for Lucy, that statement rings true. We would give anything in the world to trade places so she never had to feel pain again. She has endured and been through so much already, it breaks our hearts to put her through it again.
Lucy is in surgery now and we are nervously waiting for updates from the rounding nurse. Every time someone walks by, our hearts sink further into our stomachs. It's going to be a long day.
And so begins the second chapter in Lucy's life. A healthy new beginning. For as much love and joy that little bug has in her big heart, she certainly deserves a healthy one.
Come back to us soon, sweet girl.
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.
