At left, Patrick Day and Valya Andreeva, 19, in skinny jeans and not the baggy ones she had to wear because of the large metal device she wore on her leg when she first arrived from Russia.  They were able to operate on her leg at Doctors Medical Center so she no longer need to wear the device and can walk naturally now.  Monday, August 4, 2008.   She is headed back to Russia.
