Her HLHS was diagnosed in utero, and her scimitar syndrome was discovered during her immediate newborn period. She underwent a successful Norwood operation complicated by supraventricular tachycardia given her Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome. She has also undergone successful Glenn shunt and at this writing is thriving.
