Thirteen year-old Miyu Kaname, from Urasoe City, is now steadily recovering, two months after undergoing heart transplant surgery at Columbia University hospital in New York City for restrictive cardiomyopathy. She had tests conducted under a microscope last week to check her muscle cell tissue, a sample of which was removed by means of cardiac catheterization. The doctor confirmed that her new heart has not been rejected and she is well after the operation.

Miyu is now having yoga lessons as recommended by an acquaintance. She enjoys them together with the yoga teacher’s daughter who is the same age as Miyu.

Her father Toshiaki said, “Yoga is hard for Miyu, but it is also good for her. The doctor gave her permission to do it. Yoga breathing helps the autonomic nervous system and she would like to continue with it.”

Office Miyu-Aid reports on what she has been doing lately in its blog. (http://www.miyu-aid.com)
