The Afforable Care Act is under fire in the USA.  But, doctors and technicians in America are well underway to meet patient needs, regardless of their country of origin.  American care is for all Americans (North and South).  Meet Abel Camacho and his two precious daughters Bellanie and Ballanie.

These two girls were conjoined at birth.  But, thanks to the amazing medical advances in the United States, doctors were able to offer them unique lives. This occured in the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, N.Y., Friday, March 24, 2017.

American Care saves lives

The sisters were born Feb. 4, 2016 in the Dominican Republic.  They were joined at the spine.   The girls shared a key artery that supplies blood to the pelvic region as well as neurological and gastrointestinal connections.  Surgery went well.  The girls are safe to return to their families


Hospital officials say the twins’ 21-hour surgery was successful.  Both children should enjoy full lives. Dr. Whitney McBride says the girls’ progress is “nothing short of remarkable.”  It is not certain whether parents, Abel Camacho and Laurilin Celadilla, are legally allowed to stay the entire time of their daughters’ recovery.

The doctors were not certain as to how long physical therapy would last for the girls as outpatients.  But, the family does plan on returning to the Dominican Republic soon.  Thankfully, the USA has such a strong and qualified medical institution.  It is lucky for Abel Camacho and Laurilin Celadilla that this happened so soon in the year.

American Care Stays Put

Sources from the Trump administration say that the American medical institution is going to explode.  When that happens, the nation is not sure how medical arrangements will take place.  As for now, we are thankful that everything is working well.  The girls are healthy, smiling, and happy.  Let’s focus on them for the moment.  Healthcare, though, does seem to be a basic need, especially in times like this.
