Malalai Rafi watches over her son Omar, 8, in the recovery room at UC Davis Children’s Hospital after his cranioplasty surgery on Aug. 13, 2015 in Sacramento. Surgeons tried to put a piece of his skull back into place, which had been removed in a previous procedure due to brain swelling. The surgery was not successful and he had to wear a protective helmet until they could perform surgery again in May.
