Eventually, after a long wait, Roster was called in for her first assessment. Almost immediately she exploded into a storm of tears. Together Julio, the nurses, her mother and I tried everything – “baby shark”, bubbles, a lullaby, walking round the room with her, making faces, complete silence – eventually she started to calm down and her beautiful smile returned. Everyone in the room breathed a huge sigh of relief as everything went quiet.
We were told tonight, that Roster will probably need a surgery, but the medical team need to discuss tomorrow to confirm if she is suitable for this. Please pray that she will have the treatment she needs, and God will be with this special family during their time here.
