Today was a day of accomplishments! Our 2 boys Elvis and Rafael did so well they were moved out of the ICU! Our 2 girls Audrey and Rosaura are doing well and our last patient of today Lisbeth our youngest at 11 years old is recovering this evening from her surgery.
Our nurse and physician lecture series were received very well. We also have had the opportunity to see how much our renovated family waiting room is being appreciated.
Today we lost power in the unit for a couple of minutes. The operating rooms were spared fortunately. This is a common occurrence as it happened on our last mission trip in June. Our day started before the dawn and ended after 11 PM. We are constantly having to assess and ask for medical supplies and medications. We are lucky that our director Dr. Madelyn Stazzone works with the volunteer staff to procure the needs items.
Here are today’s pictures.
