First day at the hospital


Lia and her mum have a lovely relationship, and it was clear that her mum is both worried about Lia’s condition, and an expert in keeping her baby happy.

Lia’s echo was fairly long, but she coped very well, with her mother’s help. She met a few other Kurdish families during the waiting period.

The doctor said that Lia first needs to have a catheterisation to check the pulmonary pressure before a decision can be made about her suitability for surgery, so we will wait for this to be scheduled.
