Transplant
patient

fair
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
A two-year-old girl - the nation's
youngest heart transplant recipient -
still shows signs of rejecting the new
organ, a hospital spokesman said
yesterday.
According to John Woodford, a
spokesman for the University's C.S.
Mott Children's Hospital, results of a
heart biopsy released Wednesday
showed the girl is still rejecting the
heart although her circulation is good
and her heart is beating strongly.
THE GIRL, whose name has been
kept - secret at her family's request,
received the new heart during a six-
hour operation June 20.
Doctors prescribed massive doses of
anti-rejection medications to curb the
rejection she was experiencing earlier
this month.
Now, however, doctors are waiting to
see if the rejection will gradually halt
itself, without large doses of drugs, said
Woodford.
"THAT'S THE planned course now,
to see if it will just gradually stop," he
said.
"If you looked at her, you wouldn't
know this is a sick child or one who had
been sick," he said.
According to Woodford, the girl has
gained weight since the operation.
SHE WEIGHED 16 pounds before the
transplant and now weighs 24 pounds
Woodford said. However, doctors are
now trying to keep her weight under
control so undue pressure will not be
placedon the heart.
"Her mother said they're trying to
control her appitite a bit so she doesn't
get too much of a weight gain before she
can exercise," Woodford said.
"They're going to try to control the ice-
cream intake," he added.
According to Woodford, doctors had
allowed the girl to eat all the ice cream
she wanted because she was recovering
from surgery.
WOODFORD SAID the girl's parents
feel that she is awareof her newheart.
When doctors ask if she likes her new
heart, the girl nods her head and says
