This Summer two of our friends from Gorlovka, Ukraine came to the United States with us. Dasha Sverdlova was a patient of Dr. Joe Keller in Panama City, Florida while Ira Grabko was a patient of Dr. Jane Lamb in Luverne, Alabama. We thought Ira might need eye surgery, but thankfully she was fitted with new glasses and was able to get back to Ukraine at the end of July. Dasha had several appointments with Dr. Keller and last week had her braces removed. She flew back to Ukraine on Monday, August 20.
Many thanks to Dr. Lamb, Dr. Keller, Benji and Kim Nall, Howard and Carol Gray, George and Patricia Barnes, Tim and Tammala Spencer, Jerry and June Harrison and others who helped provide for Ira and Dasha while they were visiting in the States.
