My husband has been busier than a one armed paper hanger- coordinating supplies, medicines, flights and personnel to Haiti. Just a few days ago, he sent a team of doctors, counselors and volunteers (from our church) to help in the relief effort. Kahuna was bummed that he couldn’t go with them. My broken foot sealed the deal that he should stay home… this time.
Every evening at about 5:00 the team calls on their sat phone and gives Kahuna an update. Someone has an iphone and was able to send a few pictures, too. They speak volumes…
This is Scott on the left. He took most of the pics:
Fifteen days with a compound femur fracture and head laceration. Patient reported his pain was moderate. Tough guy.
Dr. Ian Armstrong neurosurgeon taking a break to love on the kids.
This is our dear friend Brian.
This is what Scott said while photographing this scene. I thought is was so inspiring, “It's cool being a youth counselor to a kid you know is awesome...then he grows up and becomes awesomer. Dane in action.”
Dr. Jolie had the genius idea to write diagnosis and plan on kid’s cast, i.e. femur fracture remove cast march 26th. The info. will be vital for his check up.
A v-collapse and a pancake collapse side by side.
This sweet boy was helicoptered in from the mountains, malnourished...both parents gone.
A team member has fallen in love with him and is going to try to adopt him.
Don’t stop praying for Haiti.
