We would like to express our pure and complete gratitude for those who donated to help With Zuzu's surgery expenses! With the biggest all 4 of us can muster THANK YOU!!
Zuzu's surgery was a success. She is one of 14 in the world who have this new melody valve replaced in the mitral position in the heart. The valve is made out of the vein of a cows jugular. Because of it She is breathing effortlessly, eating great, and finally growing!
What's next for Zuzu? Once a year for the next few years as Zuzu grows She will need to go back to Boston to get the valve dilated bigger through a catheter. Eventually the valve will need to be replaced. However hopefully by that time they will have better options for Zuzu.
Thanks to this new breakthrough surgery Zuzu will have significantly fewer open heart surgeries, Quicker recovery time, Half a daily aspirin instead of a daily shot to regulate her blood, No oxygen! No diarrhetics, all round a much better quality of life and a significantly reduced risks of blood clots!
Zuzu was the first in utah to get this worldwide breakthrough surgery and is now bringing the surgery to her home state which will bless many many people.
thank you for playing a huge part! Thank you again from the top to bottom of our hearts. We will forever be grateful for your kind generosity, especially our little Zuzu!
Love, Chris Ashley Taimi and
OUR CHAMPION ZUZU
I wish I could meet with all of you personally and somehow show you how much it means to us. Thanks again
