What is a hole in the heart?
Pedctsurgery explains that a hole in the heart means that there’s a gap in the septum. It divides the two sectors of the heart. And, that means that blood that should go to the body can end up in the lungs. They explained that these days, kids born with that undergo surgery that corrects it. In fact, they noted, ” Children [with] simple congenital heart defects can survive to adulthood and live normal, active, and productive lives.”
On Twitter, one Doubling Down with the Derricos fan noted, “I was also a premie with a hole in my heart, I’m 38 years old and have had no major health problems to date! Baby Dawsyn is a fighter and will be just fine!” Meanwhile, other fans really pray that Dawsyn pushes through. Here’s a little spoiler for you. More recent photos show the family with 14 children. So, it looks like Dawwsyn made it through her first crisis on planet earth.
