Staff Photo: Brendan Sullivan Dr. Michael Lipsitt and his wife Jeanne talk their dogs Sophie and Jack for a walk with Eyasu Minas Woldekirkos, right, and translator Muluken Messele, center, at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Sandy Springs Wednesday. Prior to the surgery Eyasu could barely walk due to his faulty heart valves.

Eyasu Minas Woldekirkos says he was not afraid, not of the roughly 7,700-mile journey from his native Ethiopia, or of the complicated cardiac surgery that awaited once he arrived in Lawrenceville.
