Iraqi girl to have life-saving heart surgery

An eight-year-old girl from Iraq is expected to have life-saving heart surgery today at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Fatima Saad Abdul-Aziz was brought to a US military base outside Baghdad in May. She has a hole between the chambers of her heart, and recently, she developed a life-threatening infection in her heart tissue. Second lieutenant Todd Wilson of Charleston, West Virginia, is a physician's assistant in the Army's First Infantry Division. He worked for month to arrange Fatima's treatment. If all goes well, Fatima will stay in the Cincinnati area for up to two months. She's living with Marian and Dick Tarvin of Anderson Township. They say they want to take Fatima to the zoo and the aquarium once she gets better.
