Heart of a fighter: Camille is home for the holidays

Camille Gwartney is a 3-year-old girl from Henderson, Texas battling multiple heart defects. After spending months in the hospital she is home just in time for the holidays.

HENDERSON - Back home in East Texas is not where Ashley Wallace, Camille's mom thought they'd be spending the holidays.

"There were points where we didn't think we were going to be going home, to actually be home, it's a blessing," said Ashley and Kolton Wallace, Camille's parents. 

Camille spent the last few months at a Houston hospital battling her multiple heart defects; however, she was recently given the okay to head home where she is enjoying being outside, riding their Ranger, and being surrounded by family. 

Camille will still face challenges that she will conquer day by day and although her heart isn't 100% where they hoped it would be...

"...reality is Camille's not better," Ashley said.

...Camille is 100% glad to be home.
