Karla had the duct between her two heart arteries closed. The Ductus Arteriosus normally closes within days after birth; when it does not the heart works twice as hard as normal and the lungs can be filled with excess blood, both which endanger the child's life.
Karla has been resting and being monitored most of the month at the hospital. The doctors feel she is doing well and will be able to return home soon.
Thanks to the doctors at Hospital Metropolitano Quito and Fundación Metrofraternidad , and all the Very loyal HKIE donors who make these miracles happen!
Isn't she a cutie!
