According to information, 4-year-old Maria is now being treated at the Pediatric Clinic of the University Hospital with her parents by their side, while she has completely escaped danger.
“It is unknown when the child will be discharged, however, the difficult times are over,” says the PAGNI Commander and surgeon Mr. Giorgos Chalkiadakis in cretapost.
Science and together the medical and nursing community of Heraklion University Hospital managed to do the “miracle” her and to reverse the child’s health condition, which presented breathing difficulties and from the first moment was judged to be particularly critical.
In fact, the hearts of the local community were shattered when it was announced that little Maria had lung failure and was fighting to stay alive.
