The small Elissa Grondin has just passed the critical stage of the 48 post-operation hours. Although still fragile, his condition is improving.

[…] The meetings with the experts continued, his liver and kidneys are beautiful and we look for the cause of pneumonia, but his lungs are improving. It saturates at 95%. Wow. Today the doctors said she is fine, but it’s one day at a time, in the first 48 hours, it was an hour at a time. Thank you all for your support, and above all a huge thank you to the donor family, we thoughts are with you, “says Josée Scatland, mother of Elissa, through a Facebook message.
