Looking at the doctors somber attitude, Carlos’ head started spinning and he almost lost his balance. His heart started pounding. He knew from the moment he saw the doctor’s bloodshot eyes that he didnt have good news and that was quickly confirmedMoreLooking at the doctors somber attitude, Carlos’ head started spinning and he almost lost his balance. His heart started pounding. He knew from the moment he saw the doctor’s bloodshot eyes that he didnt have good news and that was quickly confirmed when he looked into his face and said, Carlos, your daughter is dying.Tell me its not true!

Tell me you might be wrong! Carlos’ eyes filled with tears.No, I am not, he said. “Her kidneys are failing”There must be something you can do.We can try surgery, he said. But she is only 14 months old and she may not survive it, but that is our only one in a million chance to fix her up. The technology is not here yet- maybe in another ten years we might be able to do transplants in babies, but today we cant- we would be making her suffer in vain.If there is a one in a million chance, I’ll take it.

What do we need to do?She would have to have surgery here tomorrow or in the United States next Monday, but your chances will improve if you go to the US. If you can get her there in time. I doubt, however, that she will make it to the airport. She has lost one of her kidneys already and the other is working at less than 30%. Going is futile.Carlos reached the clinics waiting area and looking at Lizzy said- Gabriella is very sick, she needs an immediate surgery, either here tomorrow or Monday in the US.

We can’t wait. Her kidneys are failing.Lizzy let a loud cry. I knew it, I knew it, she said as her eyes filled with tears. She shook her head, wiped away her tears and said with determination in her voice, They are not touching her here- they will kill her in Bolivia.Carlos had never seen Lizzy take over so quickly- she was like an officer in the army. Her tears had disappeared- she was on a mission and there was no stopping her. She was the lioness he knew. She was determined to save their daughter.Two days later after visas and passports were issued- Carlos and Lizzy got up at 4:00 a.m., knowing the flight was scheduled to depart at 7:30.

Lizzy turned on the radio and heard the announcer speaking either Quechua or Aimara, the two native languages of Bolivia. “Carlos” she said. I can’t understand a word of what he is saying on the radio. It is very strange.Carlos knew immediately what was going on. He had experienced the same on other occasions and it was never good. Wake up, Andrea, he said. I can’t understand it either, but I am afraid it is not good.As Andrea heard the radio her face turned white. It’s a revolution, she said. The farmers and miners want to take over the government.

They have already taken half the country. They are marching towards La Paz and the government forces are going towards the high plateau to stop them. I am afraid there is no transportation. Not even gas stations are open, and the train stations and airports are closed. The city is immobilized.
