Mariama’s pink bandage

Mariama was born with 4 fingers on each hand. If you look closely at the first picture, you can see her fingers joined together. She already had surgery on her right hand to separate the fingers. She will have surgery on her left hand soon. The surgery doesn’t call for a plaster cast, so I felt bad that all the other kids were getting their casts painted and she was left with a bright white bandage. If we painted her bandage, the paint would seep through the gauze. But then I remembered that I had colored tape! So we wrapped her bandage in pink and white tape and added little hearts in marker on top of the tape. I think she was excited to go back to the patient guest house to show everyone that she had a decorated bandage too!
