Tiny Teddy is not so small now!
18 January 2017
Do you all remember the story of Teddy? Getting to the heart of it for Teddy!
Weighing in at just over 2.2kg Teddy was one of the smallest patients to undergo lifesaving heart surgery at Willows (and in fact one of the smallest patients in the world to receive this procedure). At just eight weeks of age Teddy was referred to our Specialist Cardiology Team as he had been diagnosed with a serious heart condition and was suffering with heart failure due to a congenital heart condition.

Teddy’s surgery was a great success - despite his tiny size. He has been back to see Willows’ Cardiology team and as you can see from the pictures, he is thriving. He has grown so well and despite his uncertain start in life, is now able to enjoy life as a puppy should! He also seems very happy to be reunited with Cardiology Specialist, Mike Martin, and Cardiology Nurse, Jodi, who are delighted with his progress.
