Story after story like that.... My leg has hurt since "the event" - Well lets take an x-ray. Oh look, a 4 month old, fully healed in the wrong place fracture in your tibia. Well, in the states we could offer you a total knee, but, as Alec would say, "we don't have that," so here is a shot of cortisone. Come back in 3-6 months when it wears off. Try to keep this 1/2 sheet of paper until then, so the next people don't have the same experience of discovery. Whose next !?!
We are hopefully going out on a tour tomorrow. I have still not been off the campus here. We have been doing 20-25 cases a day and routinely finishing between 11 and 2am. Obviously it would be nice to see PAP up close. Everyone keeps talking about how there is no evidence of any sort of rebuilding project. In fact, there is not even evidence of clearing of the rubble. No dump trucks or cranes or any type of heavy equipment.
Two more full days. The slow influx of new people starts tomorrow, but the work marches on. As we left the OR tonight, the schedule listed 21 for tomorrow and I know that ER will be full when I walk by at 7:45!
Noah & Alec-
Thanks for the pics! Love you both and see you soon.
