An amazing recovery for Marta

Marta and koala

Our patient Marta continues to confound the doctors with her incredible recovery. She is a testament to the excellence of the care by the Royal Melbourne Hospital team, and the resilience of 16 year old heart patients.
Today Marta is cuddling her new teddy (a kind gift from visitor Anton), doing her physio exercises, eating chocolates (a present from visitor Daniella) and looking forward to being discharged from hospital tomorrow, less than a week after surgery to repair her faulty heart valve. If things continue to go well, she may even be home to East Timor on the weekend, a brilliant outcome all round.
