Amelia's Success Story

Amelia was born with gastroschisis in April of 2005. She was born almost six weeks early, with a very large hernia involving most of her intestines, her stomach and both ovaries. She was taken into surgery the day she was born to repair the gastroschisis and to have a central line put in. A few weeks later she became very ill, and was no longer tolerating the small oral feeds she was receiving. Tests showed she had a perforation in her bowel and was transferred to Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, via Life Flight for emergency surgery. Read this story.
