Dasha's Surgery a Success!

 | Published on 1/18/2012
Four-year-old Dasha underwent surgery today at Saint Francis Hospital. At 11:00 am, Dr. Sean Levchuck came from the operating room to the visitor's lounge. He told Dasha's great aunt, Olga, that everything had gone well and that Dasha's PDA (patent ductus arteriosus) has been closed for good.

Dasha will be kept overnight for observation and discharged tomorrow.

Special thanks to Elena Kuznetsova, Natasha Monakova, and Witaly Jakowlew for volunteering at the hospital today. Dasha's family is very grateful for all the support.
