Surviving one scary medical condition is difficult enough, but Madelyn also had a serious heart condition. After her initial emergency GI surgery before she came into our care, which never would have been carried out if the doctors there had known about her heart condition, Madelyn had several more GI surgeries before finally being able to have heart surgery in August 2012.
We are so incredibly thankful for Madelyn's miracles. She has grown into such a sweet little lady, so full of life that it's hard to believe that she almost didn't survive.
Readers of this blog with a good memory may be thinking "Madelyn already had a Transformation Tuesday post". Yes, it's true, there was this post in celebration of her third birthday. We're pretty sure that her story is so incredible that it's worth retelling though.
