Little Emma Claire has had a really rough start to life. She was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and lifeflighted to the children's hospital 2 hours away where she had open heart surgery that day, and again a week later. At 3 months old she went into cardiac arrest and ended up being listed for heart transplant. Her heart was so weak and she had no other options. She was being kept alive on life support in the CICU. She received her miracle heart in October 2015 when she was 5 months old!
She still has lots of doctors appointments, blood draws, medications, and yearly heart caths. But overall she is a happy, thriving 2 year old!!
