14-month-old Seini Koroi will be returning home today after undergoing successful surgery at the Sai Sanjeevani Children’s Heart Hospital.

Her emotional mother Siteri Ryland says she found out her daughter had a hole in her heart when she was 2-months-old.

Ryland says she received the call that she had been praying about on Thursday and Friday morning Seini went in for surgery.

She adds it was the longest 4 hours of her life and she was so thankful and just broke down when the surgeon told her that it was a success.

Ryland says she wants to thank God, the doctors, and staff at the hospital for making them feel welcome and at home during their stay.

Also present at the Gift of Life presentation was Deputy Prime Minister, Manoa Kamikamica who says the Government would like to thank the Sai Prema Foundation for the work that they do and also thanked the Tappoo family.
