As I stared at what remained of Rhoda's face, I broke the cardinal rule: "No crying in the O.R." All too common at Mwami Mission Hospital are burn cases like three-year-old Rhoda's. After falling in the village fire six weeks earlier, all of the skin that once covered her face was now incinerated. The fire left no lips, nose, or eyelids, even exposing part of her skull. Her shriveled fingers dangled from her swollen, skinless hand. She hardly looked human.
