Hanging out in the recovery room is hit or miss. Sometimes it is very quiet and inactive. That can change in a second though when a patient arrives from surgery. Recovery nurse Barb Cummings is pictured here with anesthesiologist Steve Parker, taking care of Johe Suquilanda after a cleft repair. Barb says the first 15 minutes or so in recovery are SO important. She keeps a very close eye on Johe. This is Barb's first trip with Interplast, and she loves it. "It's less intimidating than I thought, and I like using my creativity here. You need to do more with less." I know what Barb meant, as I also had that feeling prior to the trip, but it disappeared as soon as we teamed up to heal and bring hope to these children.
