Some of the patients were ill-- polio-stricken limbs, hydrocephalus, autism, ADHD, cleft lip/palate, oh i can't mention everything here. Some weren't sick at all, just abandoned by their families. Sad.. ):
All day, me and Twain cared for these patients, dressed them, fed them, had them take their meds, checked their IV solutions, wiped their faces of dirt, muck, or saliva. The physical part, its not that hard to accomplish.. But the emotional part, well.. it was tough to display a strong and cheerful facade when you can feel the air drained out of hope, happiness and contentment. The abandoned mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, the only gift they want is to see their loved-ones again, hug them for real, kiss them for real.
I'm not a trying to be a saint or something, I just think, its a good idea to past your time caring for the sick, the abandoned, rather than passing your time at home, idly. I really had a nice time chatting with them, hugging them, just make them feel they're cared for and loved.
Picture taking is not allowed thats why I can't post the pics here with the patients but me and Twain did take pictures of us while inside the home. I will post the photos here soon, not now, the photos are at Twain's cam.
And then I did a little research on the web and stumbling upon Caaro's site, I found these:
