Violet, 17, was readmitted today, the fourth time in two months. Our friends from Christ's Hope brought her to Maseno Mission Hospital. Dr. Hardison tapped 1800 mls of fluid from her chest and will probably need to repeat the procedure tomorrow. Violet's nine-year-old sister Elyse (at right) remains with us as her caregiver to help with meals, meds and personal care. Wide-eyed and serious, Elyse tends to Violet's needs with consummate attention and affection. Orphaned by AIDS, they now have only one another -- and y/our prayers.
