Today, after four weeks of rehab, we discharge her. She and her husband return to their village. In their luggage is a walker, a donation from the hospital, which will help her get to where she wants to go.
There was one thing about this couple of believers that impressed not only us but also others: the way the Quechua husband cared for his wife. Almost every day, he brought her a little gift. He took care of her with much love, even helped with the braiding of her hair. He exercised with her during the physical therapy sessions and took her out for walks. He cheered her up and they laughed together. All of that was done in a very loving way. A true exception in a macho society like Peru.
