Here’s the update I received:
Marlie Casseus underwent her third surgery earlier today at Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami. The surgery began at 10:18 a.m. and was completed at 6:58 p.m. During the eight hour and 40 minutes operation and reconstruction of the upper mid portion of her face, Marlie’s nasal bridge and upper lip were formed and the separation of her eyes was corrected.
Marlie is currently in critical but stable condition in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Did anyone see the story about Marlie on Discovery Health last night? It was heartbreaking in ways, seeing how Marlie has suffered. I was really touched when I saw Marlie cry after seeing herself in a mirror after her first surgery. Marlie was really looking good after the second surgery and I imagine that after her third surgery she’s even better! Marlie has been through so much, but she has made great strides toward a new life thanks to many good people.
Thanks to all that have helped her; without you, where would she be today?
God bless you and God bless Marlie and her family.
