Daniel's Heart Surgery Goes Well!

RGOL Board members Angela Lostritto brought Daniel and his mother Marina to St. Francis Hospital this morning to have his heart defect corrected. RGOL Board member Wally Kowalenko met the family at the hospital to help interpret. Daniel's mother was very emotional as the moment to go into the operating came. Dr. Levchuck and his staff were able to calm Daniel's mother down and with tears streaming down her face went to the waiting area. There RGOL volunteer Irina Doumanova met the mom and sat with her to provide support during this excruciating hour and a half.

But all went well - Dr. Levchuck came out of the operating room and said that the hole in Daniel's heart is now closed forever. More tears streamed down his mother's face - this time tears of joy.
