Two young Minnesota sisters share a very special gift: two successful heart transplant surgeries. For their mother, Linsey Rippy, this Mother’s Day is about routine rather than recognition. “You just deal with it. What more could I have done? You just take it as it comes,” said mother Rippy, whose 3-year-old daughter, Sydney, is still recovering. To say the least, few months have been tough on the Rippy family is an understatement. In October, Sydney was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, or an enlarged heart.
