Thanks to the advancement of medicine, the baby who was born twice is now growing healthy after a year. Baby Lynlee Hope’s case is one for the books after she was born two times last year because of a rare congenital condition.

Surgeons removed Lynlee Hope from her mother’s womb at 23 weeks and received a crucial operation after a sonogram showed that she has a massive tumor at the base of her spine. The tumor was as big as her head and doctors revealed that the baby may not make it in full term if the tumor is not removed.

Baby Lynlee Hope is now growing healthy after she was born twice last year.

The tumor, known as a sacrococcygeal teratoma, was diverting blood from the fetus, raising the risk of heart failure. It is a crucial condition that requires operation immediately.

When baby Lynlee Hope was rushed to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, she had 50 percent chance to live as she will undergo a five-hour operation.

Surgeons worked hard in removing the tumor that endangered her life while she was still in the womb.

Baby Lynlee Hope was out of the womb for a full 20 minutes as surgeons removed the tumor. At that time, she weighed 1 pound, 3 ounces. Then, she was safely tucked inside her mother’s womb until she reached full term. Three months later, Lynlee was born by cesarean section, weighing 5 pounds, 5 ounces.

Baby Lynlee Hope and her mom are thankful for this medical miracle.

Fast forward a year later, the toddler is now able to walk and run. Mom Margaret Boemer said,

“She loves to run and walk, which is a miracle itself. She is an amazing joy.

She can do whatever she puts her mind to. The sky’s the limit.”

Baby Lynlee Hope is indeed a medical miracle – and she gets to celebrate two birthdays a year.
