The surgeons, pediatricians and I went to the hospital this morning to check on the welfare of the children who received surgery on Day Six. Even a day after a cleft lip repair the results are rewarding.
As we were leaving, Priscilla popped out of the pink house and gave me a hug. Her brother, Nelson (Day Four), will be staying until Wednesday because they can not afford to leave Oaxaca and then do a return trip; their journey to the hospital originally took them several days. I don’t dare think where she found a fresh pink shirt and new “jewelry.”
