A little girl in heart surgery
We have become friendly with a family. Nice folks. Very poor. The second youngest girl is 16 years old has a smile that lights the room. She also has a severe heart condition. The doctors told her she would die soon with out an operation. Poor and sick is not a good combination here. Our friend Fa found a donor to pay for the heart operation (costs $7,000 US). I got a message just now that she just went into surgery. Most kids would have ended up dying here in the same situation. If the surgery is succesful, mark one in the poor, sick and kind of lucky column.
