Hospital live tweets as girl undergoes live-saving gastric bypass surgery
Alexis Shapiro, 12, suffers from hypothalamic obesity, a rare disorder that has caused her to gain almost 2 pounds a week despite every attempt to slow down her weight gain. Alexis now weighs almost 200 pounds. She'll undergo surgery Friday morning at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, and because gastric bypass surgery is so uncommon for children, the social media staff is live-tweeting the procedure.
"@CincyChildrens: Our goal in Tweeting today's surgery is to bring awareness and understanding to this rare and often misunderstood condition #HyObesity"
