Chro Goes in to Surgery; Mom Sees Softer Side of Turkish Neighbors
July 23, 2010 by Jeremy
When it’s your little girl going in to heart surgery, you want someone you can trust on your side. So when the person at your side is a so-called “enemy” – one who is willing to go to war with the mess inside your child’s chest where a heart is supposed to be – a lot of preconceived notions about this “enemy” begin to disappear.
And they get replaced with names of new friends.
Thanks to you Chro gets her heart surgery today. Thanks to you Chro’s family will also have new stories to tell about Westerners and Turks who genuinely care.
Stay tuned for post-surgical updates from Istanbul…
EDIT: A last minute complication in the ICU caused Chro’s surgery to be delayed for precautionary purposes. Due to the decreased surgical staff on the weekends, Chro’s surgery has been tentatively rescheduled for Tuesday.
