Esther was born in Nigeria on September 23, 2013. Just 6 weeks after birth, she fell ill and was diagnosed with a large PDA, pulmonary hypertension, pailet and floating ribs. She had frequent convulsions until the age of 5 years. The pailet could not be closed because of the congenital heart defect. Esther’s parents took her regularly to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital to get compounded medications, echocardiograms and x-rays. She was always admitted to the hospital when she was convulsing. She did not ever sleep well. Now that her heart has been healed, she sleeps very well, feels much better and is happy.
