Collings arrived safely in the Texas last Saturday. During his first week in the United States, he was immediately welcomed by members of HeartGift, Malawians in Texas, and his previous doctor in Malawi. This warm welcome allowed him and his mother to feel safe and well prepared for the surgery ahead.
Yesterday, Collings went into surgery to fix a congenital heart problem he has, called tetrology of fallot. After a long procedure, Collings came out of a successful surgery! He's doing well and is in the process of recovering. We wish him the best of luck in the upcoming weeks!
