Pamana day 8

Pamana day 9 Jan 12 2011

At breakfast Mom said that Ronnie had been talking in her sleep, in Spanish!

Later when I arrived at Trisker I was told that all the kids were getting medical care that day.
I found them in the play room, all 64 of them! 64 kids in 1 room= crazy! This time Mom and Ronnie came with me and Mom was in charge of guarding the door. (not an easy job) Some little ones knew that they needed shots and made an escape through the windows.

I was told to get a baby from her crib and take her to get a shot. When I brought her back with me the doctor told me to sit and I sat, not knowing the horror that awaited me. The doctor told me to hold her leg and chest "for security" then as I watched her prepare the sringe I felt dizy. The baby had an easier time trying not to cry than I did. As the needle pierced her chubby leg she cried out. I bit my lip so as not to do the same.
