BOSTON (CBS) – Just a few weeks ago, Zebaan Khattak, a 14-month-old Pakistani boy, could barely open his eyes. Now he is recovering from lifesaving surgery at Children’s Hospital Boston.
Zebaan was born with his heart on the wrong side of his body, and no spleen. Zebaan also has two holes in his heart.
Zebaan was in critical condition when he first arrived. Dr. Ram Emani had to perform emergency surgery, and will have to do more when Zebaan gets older.
