A 5-month-old baby girl from Colorado is happy and healthy today -- thanks to a life-saving lung operation she received before she was born. When Lake Annabelle Hall's mom, Savannah Perry, was at the 20-week mark in her pregnancy, doctors discovered the baby had a cyst on her lung that would make it unable for her to breathe upon delivery.
And you can only imagine the sense of desperation and sheer panic that her parents felt upon hearing the devastating news, which was found at a routine office visit.
But luckily, Dr. Timothy Crombleholme had a plan. He decided they he would operate on baby Lake during the 30th week of pregnancy -- outside of the womb.
