Bilegt Enkhbayar, Mongolia
Great news! Bilegt and his mother Oyun are both doing great in Mongolia! Bilegt had a massive hole between his ventricles and at 4 months old had to be rushed to San Antonio for his HeartGift Surgery in May of 2018. Upon recovery, the amazing team at University Hospital discovered a metabolic condition hindering his recovery which was masked by his congenital heart defect. Our local doctors were able to share their finding with his doctors in Mongolia and he continues to improve. Also while in San Antonio, his mother Oyun also got sick and needed surgical intervention, after a long recovery she is also doing much better and was able to take Bilegt to the local museum.
