From this quote, what do you think about the recovery of Coyotito's pain? Isn't it just Kino's feeling which is overwhelmed by the discovery of the pearl?

Yes, there is a sense that the massive "good fortune" of the Pearl has something to do with the baby's receding swelling. Kino would like to believe this. Certainly Kino and his people believe that all things are connected both in their lives and the natural world. Still, the most logical explanation for the baby's recovery is the poultice of brown seaweed that Juana applied and the fact that she had sucked the poison out of the wound in Chapter 1.
