Fourteen-year-old Polina underwent surgery today at Saint Francis Hospital. As he has done many times, Dr. Sean Levchuck came from the operating room to the visitor's lounge. He told Polina's mother, Katya, that everything had gone well and that the hole in Polina's heart has been closed for good.
Polina will be kept overnight for observation and discharged tomorrow.
Special thanks to Lee Robbins, Ludmila Kudasheva, Boris Mourashkin, and Angela Lostritto for volunteering at the hospital. Polina's mother and relatives back home are extremely very grateful for all the support.
