Lucky Boy

CarolandBishnuBishnu, a14 Year old Nepali boy severed ligaments, bone and tissue of left hand while cutting wood with a sickle. It was a very complicated 3 hour surgery performed by Dr. Kiran, the only hand surgeon in Nepal and the director of the corrective surgery outreach team. With healing and a lot of therapy he will have use of his hand again. He made me think of my grandson Colin being that they are the same age but with very different lives. Both are very lucky boys.
