Thanks again to everyone for the lovely prayers, thoughts and wishes. We couldn't have done this without your support. We truly appreciate all of the good people out there that were thinking about our little munchkin during surgery.
Lucy has been recovering extremely well at home. Her oxygen saturation levels are around 93-94% without extra O2s, so she's at the low end of where we would like her to be. So, for the time being she's still on very little oxygen, 1/4 to 1/2 liter flow. We have a follow-up cardiology appointment tomorrow and pulmonology appointment later this month to review her current medications and discuss oxygen requirements.
We are so excited to hopefully have a toobie free baby soon. In the meantime, our little butterball couldn't be more happy to be home. And so are we.
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.
