Healthy Heart Club, Update 4
Our little wiggle monster had an okay first night. She was very restless, trying to find that fine line of just the right amount of sedation.
She is on Fentanyl (among many others), a narcotic pain killer, which causes itchy skin, especially in the nose and face. Poor thing will stop at nothing to scratch her nose, which she literally rubbed raw last night with a sock-covered hand.
Should be an interesting sock puppet show today.
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.
