Day 4 - Monday (Feb. 8) - Surgery

The surgical team was able to complete 18 more surgeries (that represents 53 total surgeries!) today.

They had a 25 year old woman who had been in some sort of accident that had mutilated her ears, in addition to leaving some scars on her face and throat. The team was able to perform reconstructive surgery on one of her ears.

Additionally, they were able to reconstruct a drooping eyelid on a 4 month old baby, remove the pareidal gland from a 60 year old man (while avoiding all of the nerves in the face!), and remove a keyloid tumor from the ear of an 18 year old.

Once again, it is wonderful to see God working through these gifted men and women.
