Ailin had a CT scan done and Dr Pablo Salamea has cleared her to have the surgery to implant a prosthetic eye..She had cancer in her eye at 4 months and had to have it removed..
The surgery will be performed by Dr Juan Jose Diaz and Dr Pablo Salamea at Hospital Del Rio.
Due to the fact that Dr Diaz is one of the busiest eye surgeons in Cuenca, Ailin surgery may have to wait until the first week in December.
All of us at HKIE want to thank Dr Pablo Javier Salamea Molina, our medical director, for introducing us to Dr Diaz. We are thrilled to have such a highly qualified eye surgeon working with us.
After their third visit to Hospital Del Rio, Ailin's mother is allowing herself to believe that her precious little girl will get the surgery that she thought would never happen.
Again, we want to thank all of our HKIE supporters for making Ailin's surgery a reality.
