6-Month-Old Baby Thriving After Undergoing Unique Form of Open-Heart Surgery: ‘It’s Extra Special’

The Kelley family is excited for an “extra special” Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday, with their 6-month-old daughter Bryce thriving after undergoing a unique form of open-heart surgery.

As a newborn, doctors discovered that Bryce had a heart murmur, and would likely need surgery.

“It was scary,” her father, Mike, tells PEOPLE. “I think any heart issue sounds scary, and the fact that she had a hole in between the two ventricles was definitely frightening and nerve-wracking.”

Surgery wasn’t certain, and the best-case scenario was that tissue would grow over the hole in Bryce’s heart.

“We were just hoping that the whole side would shrink, and just through monitoring it we found out that it wasn’t going to happen because she wasn’t gaining weight,” her mom, Erin, says. “She had a lot of congestion when she was breathing. She just wasn’t growing the way she was supposed to.”

At four months old, the doctors determined that Bryce would need surgery as soon as possible. Though she was in the 50th percentile for weight when she was born, Bryce had sunk to below zero — “off the charts,” says Mike.

Her cardiologist brought in Dr. Khanh H. Nguyen, Chief, Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, who performs a unique form of open-heart surgery where the incision is made under the armpit, rather than the traditional method of cutting down the breast bone. Dr. Nguyen started using this different form 14 years ago.

“Most heart surgeries stem from the chest, and we know that this is not the greatest approach, and we had been looking for other options,” he tells PEOPLE. “This technique had been done in Germany and Switzerland, and I thought I should try it, and we never looked back.”

Not only does it leave patients with a much smaller scar — only about three inches long, and under the armpit — but it also has a much faster recovery time — two days versus several weeks.

“This technique works very well in small children, and the fact that they’re children — they tend to be very active and not having to heal the breastbone is very helpful,” Dr. Nguyen says. “Bryce was able to go home in just two days.”

During the surgery, the Kelleys say that they were nervous, but trusted the doctors. It took five hours total, and about three days after the surgery Bryce was “back to her happy self,” Erin says.

“She had a lot of abdominal gas, so the first night she was home was kind of rough and scary, but after that everything went great,” Mike adds.

Now, they’re excited to have her at home and thriving for their first Mother’s Day.

“It will feel very blessed,” Erin says. “I’m very happy to have her in our lives. She’s just a blessing to our family.”

“I think it’s extra special,” Mike adds. “She’s so little and she’s already gone through heart surgery, it’s hard to believe. But you wouldn’t know it.”

Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent Tones Down Plastic Surgery After Comparing Herself to a ‘Walking Cat-Duck’

The Vanderpump Rules cast rarely holds back. Whether they’re admitting their last hook-up or showing their plastic surgery results on-air, they remain the most candid cast on reality TV. And Lala Kent just opened up about the latter when she revealed why she’s taking a break from getting injections.

Even though she “loves” plastic surgery (and admitted to getting her breasts done) she says she needs to cool off on a few procedures. “I feel there have been times where I completely over-do it,” she told PEOPLE during our “5 Questions” video series, above.

“So I’ve had every part of my face injected,” Kent revealed. “The things I’ve decided to stop doing is the filler in the cheekbones, the Botox above the eyebrow and the lips because I just feel like I’m a walking cat-duck. It looks like a cat and a duck had a baby and that’s me.”

The only places she will get injected now are her jawline, chin and forehead. “But hey, if you like injections and you like plastic surgery I feel like, if you feel comfortable and you feel beautiful, than do you boo.”

All season, Kent has been spreading this strong message of body positivity every time she’s on screen. Whether she’s helping Ariana Madix work through body image issues or pumping up her friends when they were trying on risqué outfits, she’s been spreading good vibes wherever she goes. So how can we channel Kent’s confidence everywhere we go?

“I think just sitting there and going, ‘You know what, this is my body and I love it and I could change it tomorrow or I could leave it the way it is and I just think women are gorgeous,’” she said. “The female body, there’s nothing hotter. So reveal that.”

RELATED: We Tried It: Real Housewives Cast Members’ Beauty Lines

In the video, above, she talks about her most extravagant shopping spree at Gucci, the best item her boyfriend, Randall Emmett, ever gave her (you know it includes something about his private jet.) But the one beauty product she can’t live without is surprisingly less extravagant — a lipgloss from her Give Them Lala Beauty makeup line.

(She actually had the $ 16  “Mistress” shade (available for pre-order) with her while filming this interview!)

14-Year-Old Who Underwent Surgery to Remove 10-Lb. Tumor from His Face Dies

A 14-year-old Cuban boy died late last week, just days after surviving a complicated surgery to remove a 10-lb. tumor from his face, the family says.

Emanuel Zayas’ condition went downhill in the week after he underwent the 12-hour surgery at the Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, according to the Miami Herald. Emanuel died Friday from lung and kidney complications.

“The surgery successfully removed the tumor but he had other complications that could not be overcome,” his parents wrote in a statement on Facebook.

“We truly believe and know without a doubt that Emanuel did indeed receive complete healing and that now he has a perfect, sweet face and two legs that work, and that he is running and jumping and having a great time in heaven right now.”

About three years ago, Emanuel developed what his family believed to be a pimple on the side of his nose. However, the blemish kept growing — obstructing Emanuel’s vision, blocking his nose and making it difficult for him to eat, Today reports.

“I was very surprised and alarmed to see how quickly the tumor was growing,” Melvis Vizaino told the site, with the help of a translator. “I desperately began to seek medical help because I knew this was not normal.”

Vizaino and the boy’s father, Noel Zayas, took him to Miami after learning that he had a rare bone disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Doctors feared that, if not removed, the tumor would break his neck.

Dr. Robert Marx, chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System, performed the surgery and said in a statement that he recently visited Emanuel and saw a “glimmer of hope” in the boy.

“I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that apparently the physiologic stress of the surgery was too much for his compromised anatomy to overcome,” he said in a statement. “Our hopes of saving his life and in doing so would allow him a better quality of life have not been realized.”

“Another angel has arrived in heaven,” Marx said.

He continued, “Please know that the family finds comfort in donating Emanuel’s body to medical research in hopes of learning more about this rare disease and helping the people all over the world who suffer from it.”

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Update on 3-Month-Old Son Who Underwent Open Heart Surgery: He’s ‘Doing Great’

Jimmy Kimmel‘s baby boy is a fighter.

The late night host gave his followers an update on son Billy, Friday, revealing that his youngest child is doing well just three months after he underwent open heart surgery as a newborn.

“Billy is three months old today and doing great,” the Jimmy Kimmel Live host wrote on social media. “Thanks for all your love & support and please remind your Congresspeople that every kid deserves the care Billy got.”

Alongside the note, Kimmel shared a photo of his smiley son.

Billy was born with a congenital heart disease, Kimmel, 49, revealed in a tearful monologue on his show back in May.

Kimmel’s wife Molly McNearney gave birth to William John “Billy” Kimmel on April 21. At 3 days old, Billy underwent the surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles because of his condition, the tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.

“Basically, the pulmonary valve was completely blocked and he has a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart,” Kimmel previously explained, adding that despite the successful open heart surgery, Billy will have another operation between 3 and 6 months old.

Joked the star, “Poor kid. Not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face.”

Kimmel and McNearney also share a 3-year-old daughter, Jane. The host has two older children – Kevin and Katie – from a previous relationship.

Erika Jayne Hospitalized: RHOBH Star Heads into Surgery for Secret Dancing with the Stars Injury

 

Erika Jayne has been keeping a secret.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star also known as Erika Girardi sustained an injury during her run on the most recent season of Dancing with the Stars.

Girardi, 45, posted Instagram Stories this morning chronicling a surgical procedure she had for an upper body tear, according to TMZ, that sidelined her from DWTS’ finale on Monday.

Ever the “showgirl,” Girardi joked in one shot that the “hospital lighting is amazing.”

In another, she wears a surgical head covering that obscures her flowing blonde hair, and a third picture shows the well-manicured nails on her right hand, which has been stuck with an IV needle and clamped by a pulse monitor.

Girardi was eliminated fourth from Dancing after she struggled with letting herself loose in the ballroom — a shock to many fans, considering her dance music performing persona Erika Jayne is known for flashy, sexy performances and skintight costumes.

Girardi’s five-week DWTS run followed an emotional roller coaster of a season on RHOBH, which culminated in her melting down over a comment about her son before having several fiery exchanges with nemesis Dorit Kemsley and Kemsley’s husband PK about a misguided joke that developed into a full-on war.

But Girardi was having a more cordial exchange with Chrissy Teigen when the 31-year-old model joked the her age was “Icy Hot patch wearer” and the reality star replied: “Same.”

Bravo had no comment.

Gabourey Sidibe Opens Up About Undergoing Weight-Loss Surgery

For Gabourey Sidibe, weight-loss surgery wasn’t about taking the easy way out.

The “Empire” star writes about dealing with depression, anxiety and bulimia before she underwent laproscopic bariatric surgery in May 2016 in her new memoir, This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare

The actress struggled with her weight for more than a decade before she decided to go under the knife and writes she knew the surgery would mean making real changes to her life. 

“My surgeon said they’d cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it! My lifelong relationship with food had to change,” she writes in her memoir, due out May 1. 

In an interview with People, the 33-year-old further opened up about her decision to undergo surgery, which she said was tied to the fact that she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

“I just didn’t want to worry. I truly didn’t want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes,” she told the magazine. 

While the surgery was motivated by health concerns, Sidibe is no stranger to body-image issues. She told People she’s learned to embrace her body, no matter what size she may be.

“There’s nothing ugly about me. Anyone trying to convince me that I am — and it’s usually me — is wasting her time,” she told People. “I was in a war with my body for a long time. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent so many years hating myself. But I love my body now.”

Photographer Captures Breathtaking Images Of Conjoined Twins Before Surgery

Three-month-old Maria Clara and Maria Eduarda Oliveira Santana are conjoined twins from Salvador, Brazil. They are currently awaiting surgical separation in Goiânia, Brazil and living at the Casa do Interior de Goiás — a center that provides lodging and food to patients and their families.

Earlier this month, family photographer Mateus André had the opportunity to photograph the twins and speak to their parents, 20-year-old Denise Borges Oliveira and Caique Santana Ramos dos Santos. André told The Huffington Post that the family is “very poor” and “going through a lot of problems.”

“I met them by chance, when my wife and I were spending some days in Goiânia,” he said. “We were walking in the city, and I saw a story on TV asking for donations.” Wanting to help the family, he visited the couple with their daughters at the center. 

“The girls’ condition is not easy, the place is poor, and they need and will need many donations,” André said, explaining that the parents have to take turns sleeping so that they can care for the twins. But, he added, “in spite of all difficulties they face, the family can be hopeful with the awaited surgery, and they really believe in a better future.”

Because the girls share a liver, the surgery is risky, but the medical staff is optimistic. The photographer said he still keeps in touch with the parents and the girls’ progress via WhatsApp.

André said he wants to use photography to bring attention to children and babies with physical and intellectual disabilities. “I have a very big responsibility to show other sides of childhood, because reality is full of faces, and the ones that need more attention are those people who are treated by society as insignificant people,” he told HuffPost. “Photography has the power to break such concepts and truly draw attention to something valuable, since these people are not alone in the world.”

Gallstones, Gallbladder Disease, and Surgery: A Patient’s Guide

Gallstones, Gallbladder Disease, and Surgery: A Patient’s Guide


Almost one million gallbladder surgeries are performed annually in the United States and often, patients have almost no understanding of what is happening to their bodies. As surgeons we do a poor job educating our patients, and patients are often too intimidated by the prospects of surgery to think of the right questions to ask! This brief, 7600 word text offers a description of the anatomy of the gallbladder and how that anatomy influences treatment options. Topics covered include: What is the gallbladder? What are gallstones? What are the symptoms of stones in the gallbladder? What about stones outside the gallbladder? Why surgery? Can’t you just remove the stones? How do you do the surgery? What should I expect after the operation? Specifically, this text gives an anatomic explanation for why gallstones are treated the way they are. It includes descriptions of what gallstones are, how their anatomic locations will cause varying symptom patterns, and the two main surgeries used to treat gallstone disease. The topics of stones in the common bile duct (choledocolithiasis and cholangitis) are also discussed, in addition to the ERCP procedure to clear the duct. There is also a discussion of post operative expectations based on commonly believed myths and commonly asked questions. This book is written by an MD who routinely performs gallbladder surgery. I have based this book on my many years worth of experience in answering patient questions and knowing what my patients are concerned about. If you or a loved one have been told that you have gallstones, it is my sincere hope that this book will shed some light on your condition and why the proposed treatment is what it is! Topics/subjects: gallstones, gall stones, gallbladder, gall bladder, cholecystectomy, laparoscopic, surgery, general surgery, jaundice, bile, abdominal pain, pancreas, ERCP.

You Don’t Need a Hysterectomy: New and Effective Ways of Avoiding Major Surgery


When this outstanding medical guide was published in 1993, nearly 600,000 women a year were advised to undergo expensive and potentially risky hysterectomies. Though the issue has garnered much press since, the rate of needless and avoidable hysterectomies has not dropped off significantly. Furthermore, 1 woman in 15 (or nearly 10 million) still suffers chronic pelvic pain and gets bad or incomplete advice on how to treat it.Hailed by "Library Journal "as "one of the best women’s health books," "You Don’t Need a Hysterectomy "provides authoritative, compassionate advice on the new and effective ways to treat chronic pelvic pain and related gynecological symptoms without radical surgery. Totally revised and updated with up-to-the minute information, "You Don’t Need a Hysterectomy" is an invaluable resource for women.
