Another Top for Sunshine

Recently I finished this top... it is going to be quilted by SW and sent on to Wrap Them in Love. Some of the fabrics were sent to me by Ellen of WTIL. I'm slowly making my way through the pile of her fabrics.

Thanks to SW for volunteering to quilt 3 tops for me! I love how Sunshine members work together!

My many thanks to Rosa. She was my translator. My 'right hand man'. We were together most days from early to when we went home. She made my life enjoyable. Thanks Rosa, if you see this.

Clinic over, prepare to go home

After the clinic was ended we noticed that the parents were staying in the clinic lobby. After a final goodbye from Weismann we left.
Many had lunch together, packed, did a little shopping and went to the airport.  We are tired and ready to go home.

The hospital grounds

In one of the pictures you can see Katy, the recreational therapist, and Dr. Dan, one of the pediatricians I worked with each day.

This was in the corner near the rooms of the clinic.

Post-op clinic

Friday was clinic. We got to see many of our friends once more.

Boys say ok to photos

Once the first boy said yes to the photos, the others followed. Thanks to the Doctor.

Thursday, last day of surgery

Today the bus trip was only 25 minutes. That is what happens when you go before traffic. Today was a less active day in surgery because the doctors have to hold seminars for the local doctors. This is part of the agreement for us to come into their country. The up side, I was invited into the surgery room and stood at the side of the doctor, I got to see the whole thing. No I did not faint. But for you, more quilt pictures. The young men were very shy. However once one had his picture taken the rest followed. Again not too many small children. Keep your eyes open sunnies these pictures are for you.
