Surgery|Jakarta Documentary Photographer

 Esther's aunt on the left, and mother on the right.

It was a sweltering day in Jakarta and I was struggling to keep my eyes open. We had just stopped by my friend Esther's aunt's place to wish her luck for an upcoming surgery. After about 25 years with diabetes, she was also having kidney issues. She was all ready to have surgery when her surgeon had second thoughts because he was worried about the results.

Esther's brother and sister-in-law were in town visiting from Singapore with their son and they thought it would be a good time to drop by. Esther's mom and dad had accompanied us as well.

 Esther's dad, right. Esther's aunt lives in a house with interesting furniture and little-kid drawings all over the walls.

Esther's brother led a prayer. Hopefully this energy aided in her recovery.
Let's hope Esther's aunt feels better.
