LITTLE Alana Reid is recovering after last week's 10-hour surgery where a team of US doctors worked to fix her hearing.

The girl, whose grandparents live in Hervey Bay and whose treatment was supported by donations from people all over the Wide Bay, is in good spirits, and is eating and playing according to her mother Emma.

Alana will today have a check-up in Los Angeles.
