Baby Zoudiera Jackson has returned to the United States, for follow-up examinations a year after a successful surgery to correct the congenital defect of two holes in the heart.
The toddler left the island recently with her mother Marecia Jackson-Williamson for Jacksonville Florida.
Jackson-Williamson posted pictures on her social media page over the weekend with the toddler who was all smiles before her first check-up.
The mother of six also commented that “my baby can do whatever she wants now and eat anything without any limits. Thanks to the Most High God, your work with Zoudiera is not over yet.”
The young baby had surgery last October. After the medical procedure was conducted at the Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, Zoudiera was released from the hospital in December, but had to go through follow-up examinations before she was able to return home to Antigua.
The government of Antigua and Barbuda, through the Medical Benefits Scheme, and corporate citizens have contributed to the cost of the baby’s lifesaving surgery.
