After Surgery

After surgery, patients returned to the chapel to recuperate. If only the lip was repaired, they went home the day after surgery. If palate surgery was done or they were not medically ready for discharge, they stayed in the chapel for an extra day. There were lots of grateful parents on the ward… relieved that their child made it safely through the surgery, and happy for the life-changing surgery. There were lots of hugs and tears for the UI volunteers and hospital staff as they got ready to go home
