Longview Doctors Say Belize Toddler With Skin Condition Is On The Way To Recovery

A miracle mission "follow up" to tell you about. Doctors say 1 year-old, Emie Salam from Belize is doing much better.

You may remember, last week, Emie flew to East Texas hoping to cure her skin disorder. Three diagnostic doctors in Longview found out Emie is allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, and latex.

They say Emie also has the MRSA staph infection and Eczema. Fortunately, medication is helping her condition and making her life a lot better. "Emie's a different child now. She sleeps all night, she's holding her own bottle for the first time ever, and standing on her legs for the first time ever. She has a personality and even has a little attitude sometime and that's good to see," said Lorrie Pitre of Compassionate Hearts Alliance.

The three Longview doctors working on Emie are picking up the medical costs. The little girl is expected to be here two more weeks.
