Have you ever waited for something for 30 years? The doctors here in Basra have!

These are the kinds of faces we're seeing around the hospital as children, parents, and doctors show their excitement for this groundbreaking surgical mission.

Given that, culturally speaking, Iraqis aren't as quick to flash camera smiles for photos, the past few days have been incredibly smiley. In fact, my flash batteries are draining at record speed as I can't seem to shoot fast enough to catch it all.

I'll have more for you coming this week, but, for now, know that our 7th operation of this mission is tomorrow morning and I'm really excited to introduce you to one of the upcoming children.

Keep reading—we'll have more for you soon!
