The first three days of surgery have been quite a success. It has been quite an adventure, first with 2 suitcases MIA until yesterday, then the autoclave machine going down (but now back up and running thanks to the hospital's engineer), the difficulty contacting friends and family in the States, and of course the food: fish and shrimp heads, fish sauce, squid, and all sorts of funky fruits! All of the team members' spirits are high and we have really bonded as a team towards our goal of helping these unfortunate children.
This is Van Huy. As you can tell he has a pretty intense bilateral cleft lip. He is scheduled for surgery later today and I will try to ge a picture of hm after he emerges.
