Day Three – Palate Surgeries

Day Three – Palate Surgeries
Anne Wuerslin, Pediatrician

There was a severe and explosive thunderstorm Tuesday night, and it rained most of Wednesday as the team started their day. The rain did nothing to cool the air however…another hot, sticky day.

Seven children were discharged Wednesday morning and one was held for an extra day due to swelling. Nine surgeries were performed, 4 cleft palates, and 5 cleft lips. Lots of happy families and smiling faces.
