We have all been particularly touched by Fidel’s family, whom we told you about a couple of days ago. I am happy to report that Fidel’s surgery appears to have been a success; he will now have more movement of his right hand, particularly the important use of his thumb. I first met him when he came to see the Interplast team in Puno, Peru in September 2002, but I had not met his three delightful children – Rodrigo (12), Ana (9), and Haiderly (7). They waited patiently in the hall during Fidel’s surgery, and inquired often about how he was doing. As soon as Fidel awoke from surgery, his first question was about the children. And as soon as the kids were allowed in the recovery room, they gathered around Fidel’s bed to stroke his head and pat his hand.
