Wallins teen continues her battle against heart condition

9 days 6 hours ago | | | Email

Lilly Miracle was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome is a complex and rare heart defect present at birth.In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left side of the heart is critically underdeveloped and the left side of the heart can’t effectively pump blood to the body, so the right side of the heart must pump blood both to the lungs and to the rest of the body.Lilly, 15, of Wallins Creek, had her first open heart surgery, the Norwood procedure, when she was 2 days old. A shunt was placed inside her chest. The operation was to reroute everything until the pressure in her heart could be stabilized and get her to a second surgery said her mother, Pamela Lankford.
