Girl, born Feb 2007
Diagnosis: Down syndrome, repaired heart condition
Marnie was in and out of the hospital the first year of her life due to medical issues surrounding her heart condition. Her heart was successfully repaired when she was a year old and her recent cardiac check up indicated that her heart is functioning normally.
Marnie is currently walking with support and receiving PT to strengthen her leg muscles so that she can walk independently. She has recently started pronouncing sounds and syllables in an effort to communicate. She plays with toys and interacts appropriately with care givers. She is NOT aggressive toward herself nor toward the other children. She eats from a spoon.
