Melanya Zlatina was born on October 19th 2016 in Eupatoria.
On October 20th, when Melanya was 2 days old, she was diagnosed with Spina bifida and underwent surgery (hernia excision).
Melanya’s parents saw their daughter on her sixth day and it brought tears to their eyes. She was lying practically motionless breathing with effort, which made her stomach rise.
The sight of the baby was pleasing to the eye despite the numerous tubes, sensors, holders and bandages. Deep in the parents’ hearts there was a strong belief that everything was going to be all right.
The first stage of the therapy was over.
