Each morning patients who had surgery the day before lined up in the hallway and had their patches removed. The spontaneous singing and dancing was so moving. These are some captured moments.
This mama saw her newborn baby for the first time after her surgery. She didn't believe that this boy to the left was her son, he had changed so much since she saw his face!!
In the midst of the dancing and singing, this mama gave thanks to God in her own way.
Asunta (above right) hadn't seen her daughter's face, Elizabeth, in over a year.
"Today, God gave me a new eye. In heaven, I'll get my new teeth!"
"What is the first thing you're going to do when you get home?"
"I'm going to cook my boy some food. From now on, I will be the one taking care of my household. He has been feeding me, but now I will be feeding him. He has been grinding the seeds and cooking. Now I will do it for him. My son will never cook again."
