Sar Sar Oo was at Baptist Hospital this week and had surgery to straighten her legs. During a lengthy surgery they put a titanium rod in each leg. After some additional adjustments she had each leg put in a cast and should be able to return home by the end of the week. Perhaps within a year she will be able to walk for the first time in her life. A big thank you to Roger Richardson with all the help he has given this family.
