Mondays are for Miracles

Our Monday Miracle Child is…. Sandra

 

 

Sandra was born with congenital heart disease and admitted to Wolfson Children’s Hospital at 3 months old for failure to thrive. To help her gain weight, she stayed in the hospital for 9 days so that doctors could place a feeding tube and assess her progress. A few days after her release, Sandra had surgery to repair a nasal blockage but developed complications. She contracted a respiratory virus and spent 18 days in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU). Showing the beginning signs of heart failure, Sandra had her first open heart surgery at just 6 months old, weighing only 7 pounds. After a fourmonth recovery at home, her health began to flourish. Sandra is a happy and thriving toddler who amazes her family, friends and complete strangers with her strength.
