New plaster for Ruth and 5 Birthday girls

Today we had to go back to Kumi with Ruth, for review her leg. Again on this very bad road, today it was even worse than the last time. Big potholes everywhere!! The doctor just started in his new hospital, it is a beautiful new hospital, specialised for orthopaedic problems. Only there was no electricity yet, and they had to take off the plaster! So they put Ruth with her legs in a bucket with water to make the plaster soft. After that they had a sharp knife to cut the plaster open. It was scary to see, so close to the leg, but they managed without cutting her leg! The doctor looked at her foot and said that it was improved, but they had to give again new plaster for two more weeks. So she is home with another white leg!
Then when we came home we had a BIG birthday party! For 5 wonderful girls, who all had hier birthday within this week. From left to right you see: Ella, Esther, Florence, Leya and Gloria! Gloria celebrated her 4th birthday, from the others, I lost count!
