He is close to a lot of people's hearts in the Finger Lakes. Baby Blake, the son of Tracey Purdy and Dean Simmons of Seneca Falls, is back in the hospital. According to a Thursday night post on the Family Facebook page Blake is dealing with a "mild rejection " issue
Blake, who is 5 months old had a heart transplant in November after he was born with NON-COMPACTION CARDIOMYOPATHY which is a rare congenital condition that did not allow his first heart to pump properly. The family says over the next three days he will be getting strong doses of steroids to see if things turn around.
