Brave little Ellie Doyle is going home for her mum Orla’s first Mother’s Day, after spending the first ten-weeks of her life at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH).
Ellie was born with a condition known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and was given a 25 per cent chance of survival. The condition meant that Ellie had a hole in her diaphragm, allowing her stomach, liver and bowel to grow in her chest cavity. Ellie had life-saving surgery when she was just days old and then spent five-days on life-support machines.
Ellie’s mum Orla says she “can’t wait” to take her daughter home in time for Mother’s Day.
