She likes badminton and running. She likes snacks. Her mental and language development are normal. Leona is doing very well, and syphilis didn’t exert any impact on her development.

Leona is optimistic and active. She likes to smile at people, enjoys group activities, and likes playing badminton and jump rope with her friends. From someone who knew her: She is a girly girl who loves to dance and have her hair done with pretties. She does pretty well in school. She likes to play games with her friends and watch cartoons on TV.
It seems unbelievable to think that she came into care as an infant and is still waiting for a family. From someone who knew her: She is a girly girl who loves to dance and have her hair done with pretties. She was in the third grade in China and does pretty well in school. She likes to play games with her friends and watch cartoons on TV.

On April 8th, 2003, she had a blood test that showed she had syphilis. She was immediately treated with an intravenous drip infusion of Penicillin for 2 courses of treatment. Her counter-check result was not better when she stopped her medicine treatment for 3 months, so she was sent to another hospital for treatment, which included intramuscular of Penzaethinum G, once every month, for 5 courses of treatments. The counter-check result was a weak positive. She was then taken for intramuscular of Penzaethinum G every few days and the counter-check result was a weak positive.
