Ali was just brought out of the operating theater and into the ICU—with a mended heart!
The next 24 hours will be absolutely crucial for Ali, though. The operation was a complete success, but now we have to wait to see how his heart and the rest of his body will respond.
I ran into the ICU so I could take the above photo of Ali and show it to his mother. She was ecstatic to see her little boy! Who knows what will happen next—Ali could be up walking around as soon as tomorrow!
