>Haiti, trip report

>

Today I got pictures and an email from Tom! whoohoo!
They have limited net, spotty, but sometimes, so he sent me a short email and these pics.

Flying into Jacmel.

They are all doing great, very tired but good.
Tom says he forgot how noisy it is there in the morning with the cacophony of animals! Not much different from home, that…ahem.
Anyhow: here’s the Haiti report today:

We’re very limited in bandwith but actually have some, imagine!

We’ve greatly expanded a clinic that was left standing so that is now being used as if it was a hospital. Everything But surgery and two clinic rooms is taking place outside The 2 procedure rooms and another room have been converted into ORs. We and others have brought tons of gear — we have most but not all things so we have to be creative, but we are doing surgery!

He sounds happy (tired, but still) to me. Surgical problem solving…and getting creative. He’s good at that so I’m glad he’s there. He does say however that it’s crazy hot. And we are having a snow day here, waiting for a ‘big storm.’ Life is kinda crazy sometimes. But it’s all good. And go read Cindy’s blog for her report on yesterday, good stuff.
