Here is little Anna who had her heart repaired by the International Children's Heart Foundation "Babyheart" team in Kemerovo, Russia. She is recovering quickly! Little Anna has had several surgeries due to her multiple heart defects. In 2010, she had an operation called a BT-shunt to increase her pulmonary blood flow. Then in 2011, she had a bidirectional Glenn procedure to prepare her heart for a Fontan procedure which the ICHF team performed last Wednesday, October 23, 2013.
