Port-au-Prince, HAITI–Whether it is minutes or hours, the wait always seems long when waiting for surgery. After getting him dressed for surgery, recovery nurse Renaye Mansfield took a couple of surgical gloves and blew them up for 11-year-old Widmayer Nordé. Widmayer took a pen and drew a face on the makeshift balloons. Widmayer is scheduled for hernia surgery today.
