JUNE 4, 2010: Pika came home from the hospital today, with no hair and thinner than ever after being required to lie on her belly for some 7 weeks so far. The other kids in the orphanage must hardly know her now that she has been gone so much to the hospital, and the girls are in fear of having no hair like her.
With the just recent renting of additional buildings for the orphanage, big renovations are happening these weeks, meaning big mess everywhere. The only good place for Pika is in a clean room that is somewhat isolated, meaning she is isolated even more from the other kids.
Every day we check her back in fear that her sutures are leaking again, but no, she is still okay.
