Alex’s update from China – August 14

August 17, 2011 at 11:04 am 1 comment

Today was mostly a day for the group to rest and prepare for the start of the operations on Monday.  I went through the floors exploring each room and meeting the kids.  I was greeted with friendly faces in almost every room I went into.  There are a significant number of babies born with imperforate anus, many of them with colostomies, waiting for their pull-through procedure.  In November, there will be a team from Cedar Sinai hospital coming to do the imperforate anus cases.  I was also asked by a nurse to help with the placement of a colostomy bag and to try to prevent the bag from falling off during the night.  I think the main thing I learned from all this time with these kids is that there is no doubt in my mind that I will adopt a kid with special needs.

    Alex, are you still in the Columbus area? I’d love to talk with you sometime about your work. I live in Circleville…
