HKIE brought her to Cuenca for testing with Dr. Santiago Peralta and Dr. Cristian Bravo. (Both of Hospital del Rio) Dely has been unable to walk and her limbs are very rigid. Both doctors are doing tests to see what they can do to improve her quality of life.
Her baby teeth have become infected and damaged from medication. This afternoon, Dr. J. Luis Izquierdo of Hospital del Rio, will perform oral surgery to remove or correct her upper teeth to allow her permanent teeth to grow in correctly.
Dely is an example of many doctors working together to provide medical care to the less fortunate children of Ecuador.
We wish to extend a special thanks to Veronica of the Emaus House for taking such good care of Dely and her mother during this trying time.
Thanks also to all our friends and HKIE supporters, and of course to Hospital del Rio.
