On April 26, 2012 we received more good news.
Haitian Hearts patient Joseph was accepted by CHADASHA for heart surgery.
I examined Joseph for the first time in February, 2012 in the pediatric clinic in Soleil.
Joseph has constant respiratory tract infections and a loud heart murmur coming from a hole in his heart.
In clinic this week Joseph weighed 19 pounds and is now 23 months old. He and his mom live in a tent in Port-au-Prince.
I continued him on his furosemide and we started work on his passport.
