August 18th, 2012, at 8:30 in the morning, Lydia went in for surgery.
It was a last ditch effort to save her struggling life, to grab at the window of opportunity and give her one last chance to live.
Since we began fighting for Lydia, she has been through so much. If you haven't yet, read her Amazing Story. This little one has fought more than any baby girl should ever have to fight.
But today, TODAY, Lydia lays on a bed in ICU recovering. Recovering. Finally, for the first time in her life, Lydia is in ICU not fighting, but recovering.
Her fingers will no longer be blue. Her body will no longer deteriorate. Her life will no longer be a fight.
Today, Lydia has had her heart surgery.
