Who is that surgeon?

Dr. Carol Loescher is an ob/gyn who lives in Cameroon and tries to spend a quarter of her time at Mbingo Baptist Hospital as a consultant.  Two of her children are here, Lydia and Eddie.  We have been enjoying having other kids here and today we took Lydia, Eddie, Anna and Amber to watch Dr. Loescher do a cesarean section.

Anna (left) and Amber watching Dr. Loescher operate.  No one passed out!

This little baby boy is only a minute old!

He is telling us that his lungs work very well!

Mother and son face to face for the very first time.
A special thank you to the mother for allowing our children to watch her surgery and to take these photographs.  We are very grateful!
