And then- there's the disappointing changes. Like a tiny baby that you helped, hoping and praying that he'd live, and he didn't.
A couple weeks ago we sent out two very sick little boys to the hospital in Laogonne. We hoped they would make the trip there. Today one of them came back.
"Whit! You have to come see this baby! The one we sent out with Samuel..." Kate was very happy to show me the now healthy, happy baby boy. We were all amazed seeing how much better he was!
A couple weeks ago... Notice the flaky skin on his hands, and the sores all around his mouth.
On another note, last Thursday I had a very shocking and exciting suprise show up here. My brother Aaron! :)
On Wednesday it was pouring rain and we had quite a few patients come anyway and not as many staff, so he helped fill in by weighing patients, taking blood pressures, and then mopping up all the muddy floors after the day was done.
