Picture of Min

Min traveled 3 hours with his parents to our AfS clinic at the Victoria Hospital in Yangon to see if the doctors could repair his lip. He was the first patient in line to register and was one of the first to be operated on Tuesday. Nurse Ruth says the first thing he said after he woke up from surgery was..."Am I beautiful?" So one of the nurses switched her camera to selfie mode so he could look at himself and, when he could open his eyes enough to see he said, "I AM beautiful, I'm beautiful." Then he fell asleep. When he woke up again he said, "I'm beautiful?" So the nurses let him look in the camera again and he said... "I'm beautiful now."
