Healthy Heart Club, Update 3
Lucy is currently on a hefty dose of three sedation meds to keep her from tearing the ICU apart. She's basically one step away from a horse tranquilizer.
She kicked butt today and we couldn't be more proud of her. She's the toughest little soul we know.
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.
