Lots of babies this week for cleft lip surgery. A nurse this morning says they cried all night long. She said it was quite distracting. An understatement. I am sure it is a strange place to be. And she is the nurse for the job. We have such great, compassionate nurses here.
Also, many young patients are in for clubbed feet correction. I saw 2 young boys the other day on the dock, leaving to go home. They were probably 7 or 8 years old, hobbling very fast on new crutches, walking casts on, big grins, happy family members, just as if it were all so normal. Made me smile. a life can change so quickly!
