Alaa is out in the ward and already smiling!
He has a lot of reasons to be happy—his heart and lungs are responding beautifully to the total correction of his heart defect, he is just hours away from going home, and we finally found his ticklish spot.
We're going to be sad saying goodbye to Alaa, but his entire family and community are rejoicing over the fact that they don't have to say goodbye to him.
His heart defect is now a thing of the past and his future is his for the taking.
Keep coming back as more lives like Alaa's are changed on Remedy Mission XIX!
