Visually Impaired Baby Faces New Hurdle.
At two and half months old, Penelope had a cornea transplant that partially restored her sight. Complications caused by steroids aiding in her recovery brought attention to gastrointestinal issues. And due to anesthesia from multiple surgeries, Penelope suffered a slowed digestive tract and constipation. She had trouble chewing solid foods and consuming enough calories, leaving her mother, Anne, concerned about Penelope's growth and weight gain. "Orlando Health has a fabulous institute which Penelope needed. That’s how it just became a regular part of my life."
