Saab Magalona and son Pancho went home yesterday after a successful surgery conducted on the baby last May 11.

Baby Pancho needed to be operated on to remove a bump on the child’s head. Magalona explained on a May 9 Instagram post that the bump was from a small silicon catheter called an Ommaya Reservoir. Doctors placed it under Pancho’s scalp when he was a few days old. They then used the Ommaya Reservoir to periodically relieve pressure from the baby’s brain due to excess fluid buildup.

Thank you so much to Dr. Gap Legaspi and his team and to everybody who prayed for our sweetheart. Jim and I love you.”
