You know Vista Lake - this as good a solution as anyone locally is going to find. Basically putting high quality cement with polymers and fiber for support. Hopefully the reality and moisture will disperse over a wider area and not create trouble spots.

A few links however. The muriatic acid should be gently rinsed from the area before further work. The sealer should be slightly watered down, and dampen the area before the concrete is applied, not running wet, just "thirsty". Plaster is whole different species. Don't skimp on the fibers, Sika is a good choice, just be anti-alkaline. I have never heard of white river sand, silica sand is the very best and worth the cost for the little bit you need.

Vista Lake- all new plaster doesn't crack. It cracks when there isn't enough sand in the mix (too much cement doesn't make it stronger, it makes it weaker) and when there is water added to the mix after the initial mix- too many plasterers here do this, because the mix is setting up before they can use it all. They mix up too much at once. 

None of the cement work I did in my house myself has one crack. But the work my builders did has cracks.
