This is Priyanka in recovery. Because her ear was closed, and the surgeon opened her canal during surgery, she's draining a significant infection. We have kept her at the clinic until she recovers as she and her father have a long journey home and won't easily be able to return should complications arise.
We've all fallen in love with her. She's become quite comfortable with us now and is a sweet little chatter box—in Hindi of course!
