|Caring for a post-op patient.|
It was difficult to see some of the young children with debilitating deformities... and even more difficult, having to tell them that there wasn't much that we could do for them was heartbreaking! But, the looks on the patients' faces when we were explaining what we could do to better their situations just about made up for it: They were grinning from ear to ear!

I am looking forward to another week of surgeries and seeing the post-operative patients before we leave.
I am so very grateful for this opportunity. I cannot believe that a whole week has gone by. But then again, I cannot believe how much we've accomplished already! ~Diane Koshimune, DPM - PGY3
