Levi: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Levi was born with Complete Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) and came to us just days old and very blue. Very likely his parents abandoned him in the hope that he could receive the surgery he needs in order to survive. After being evaluated at Hefei Cardiac Hospital, the doctors felt his surgery needed to be done at about 20 days old for an optimal outcome. But then little Levi struggled to eat, and the doctors decided his surgery needed to be done immediately. The surgery lasted five hours, and Levi was stable when moved to the PICU for recovery. Levi is showing gradual improvement, but the next few days are very critical for him. You can be a part of Levi’s healing by making a donation in any amount.
