Cusco, Peru - Dee Fuchs, support staff: After a full day of surgery, the weary team returned to the hotel for a light dinner and a good night’s sleep. We will board a bus early tomorrow morning for the first train to Machu Pichu and a little rest and relaxation over the weekend. The team will return Sunday evening, rejuvenated and prepared to begin again Monday morning.
Amy and I will return to the US after the weekend but the rest of the team will continue working throughout the week.
I will return having a greater appreciation of why we all work so hard to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities, which is a longtime supporter of Interplast. I have been blessed to be a part of this medical team, to make new friends, and to leave behind brighter smiles and futures for many children in Cusco, Peru.
