A complex surgical operation on an Italian woman who wanted to repair her damaged voice to allow her to speak normally again went smoothly Friday, said the woman's surgeon at UCI Medical Center. "She's doing great," said Adriana Cioce's surgeon, Dr. Roger L. Crumley. Cioce, 42, a tour guide in Rome, arrived here last week. She was scheduled for surgery Tuesday but doctors had postponed the operation after she developed a heart irregularity.

Mirela Kerla, 15 years old and a witness to war, wears a gauze patch over her right eye and three strands of knotted red thread around her left wrist.

A few weeks after giving birth to her first child, a 32-year-old Tustin advertising executive wondered why she could not comfort the inconsolably cranky newborn. Her pediatrician referred her to Tim Healy, a pediatric physical therapist who often treats drug babies. After coming to trust that Healy would not report her, she told him what she had revealed to neither her doctor nor the hospital where she had given birth: She had snorted cocaine four times recreationally during her pregnancy.
