One child had to wait until the next clinic in February for his palate repair. This was Efer, being sponsored by the Lenoir Church of Christ but we will wait patiently for the next surgical clinic.
Brandon had a palate repair. He still is not sure about being at the clinic and having so much attention.

It was a hot but fantastic week. Everyone worked so hard and long hours. It was hot but people kept going. Three OR Rooms busted, while Rick and Kerry kept the instruments coming out of the sterilization room.
A special thanks to those that sponsored the surgeries! I will see Joas tomorrow and all of the babies next Monday. I will let you know how everyone is doing.
