HKIE arranged to have all her pre surgery testing done near home and the family came in for the surgery on the 10th. As Emaus is still closed, Posada del Angel (Mangiare Bene restaurant) on Simon Bolivar gave us a deal to house them for the night following surgery.
Dr Pablo Salamea Molina performed the surgery on the 10th. As you can tell from the picture of her pre surgery, this was a very difficult case. Yet just 10 days later one can see what a beautiful job was done and that this little "angel" will grow up to be quite a beauty.
Even after all of the years working with Dr Pablo, it still amazes us to see what he can do in a two hour surgery with a scalpel in his talented hands! The before and after pictures says it all!
Needless to say, her parents were thrilled to have their precious little one healed. The father creates leather goods and had a gift for all of us.
