Emmanuel Johnson Surgery A Success!
Emmanuel Johnson's surgery to repair his imperforated anus was a success! He was in pain the day after the surgery, but nurses kept him comfortable. He will be leaving the hospital soon and in six weeks have the colostomy that was done in Liberia removed. He and his mother will be in Minnesota until January. Apparently, this problem happens 1 in 5000 live births
Angela Davis, a reporter at our station, went and did interviews with Mom and Doc yesterday. Not only did Dr. Saltzman do the surgery for free but his daughters went out and bought Emmanuel a whole bunch of things he would need.
