Pablo, the 8-year-old boy who had to receive a liver transplant after suffering acute hepatitis, no longer needs the mechanical respirator and is recovering “favorably,” medical sources said.

The medical part of Friday, shared by the surgeon Lisandro Bitetti, pointed out that “The organ is working. The fact that Pablo has woken up and has come off the ventilator, even though he needs non-invasive ventilation, means that the liver is active”.

Upon waking up, Pablo asked first of all to see his mother. The woman said: “They told me in the morning that I had to come because Pablito had woken up and was restless because he missed me. I kissed him and told him that everyone had sent him greetings. He did nothing but look at me.”
