It has been an incredible experience for me to be on another Interplast trip. This is my fourth trip so far, but to be in China is more challenging since none of us speak the language. We are so fortunate to have on our team a secretary who happens to be an RN born in China and who now lives in the States. Cindy is a godsend to us by helping us bridge not just the language, but the culture. An added bonus is Bill, who is also helping as a liaison with interpreting and looking after our daily needs such as eating! Cindy and Bill are often pulled out of our PACU to the OR or to talk with the media. Barbara, one of the local medical students, comes to the rescue when we are left alone with a post-op child.
