Update on Baby Born With Heart Outside of Body
Fri, 01-25-2013 - 11:43pm

The baby that was born with her heart outside her body has left the hospital after a 3 month stay.  She will require more surgery but she's already made history.  The baby has been at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.  In an interesting sidenote, Dr. Charles Frazer is the son-in-law of Dr. Denton Cooley, world famous cardiac surgeon.  Dr. Cooley was a very young doctor when he participated in the first blue-baby operation.  This was at Johns Hopkins.  If you have ever seen the movie, "Something the Lord Made," Dr. Cooley is portrayed in it.
