    A Haitian toddler who has suffered from painful urological infections since the start of her young life left the hospital on Tuesday, nearly a week after her life-saving surgery.

    Doctors say the surgery to fix Rose Daphcar Calixte's congenital urological problem was a success.

    The 18-month-old and her mother were flown to the United States last week.  Members of Pastor David Allen's Family Christian Center first met the pair on a mission trip following the January 12 earthquake.

    The family will stay with Munster, Ind., based surgeon Dr. Russell Pellar and his wife until the girl is fully recovered.
