CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - This is 10-year-old Lynzie Eller, the day after her second open heart surgery. Her dad, Scott, has reached out multiple times.
"I'm just so proud of her," he said. "I want the world to know."
Lynzie had that second surgery in January.
"The day afterward I asked if she wanted me to stay with her in @Levine Children's Hospital," Scott said. "Or, if she wanted to come back home to Rhodhiss. She told me I should go home. She told me she didn't want me to be fired from my job, so as a 10-year-old, she told me to go back home. I was amazed. Even when she was in pain, she still had the care in her heart to worry about me."
Months later, Scott says Lynzie is doing really well. She was out of school for a month for recovery but is still making A's and B's.
Trick is, Scott says, her problem wasn't fixed. She will most likely have more surgeries in the future.
"She's brave and beautiful," Scott said. "She'll have a bright and blessed life. We'll all get through this."
A short and sweet tribute from a dad to his daughter.
Love it when daddies write me about their girls.
