This morning at breakfast Irmã Lucelia told Natalia that there was a baby at the hospital that was really sick (they suspected the baby had HIV/AIDS) and needed milk, so she should take some and go with Irmã Claudina (who works at the hospital) when she goes. I had never been to the hospital, so I asked if I could go as well. When we got there we asked a few of the women who were waiting around where the baby was. It had died during the night. Natalia asked Irmã Rosália (one of the other sisters, who had come with us to the hospital) if she worked at the hospital too. She responded “No, it takes a lot of courage to work at these hospitals. I would like to, but I couldn’t handle it.”
