Boy, born July 2009
TB damage to spine (post surgery) – recovered
Erik is a very handsome little boy who is almost 4 years old. He was found abandoned in front of a hotel near a train station when he was 3 years old. They discovered a bulge on his back, and it was causing him pain. He also had some weakness of his lower legs. Tests showed he had TB, and it had spread to his spine. Treatment began immediately, and they repaired the damaged vertebrae with titanium mesh and plate. The pain was gone, the strength in his legs returned, and he was on his way! Erik will take the TB meds for a full year (finishing this fall), with a re-check every so often.
He is doing great now…he is active, normal intelligence, very verbal very mischievous…and just a wonderful little boy! Erik would do well with siblings of all ages, and with his generous nature, will be a son to be proud of! Please open your heart to this little boy!
