Trouble in the OR in Ecuador!

We take so much for granted living in America with all the convenience and modern technology and top of the line equipment.

Here we are in Ecuador in the military hospital. We have to bring our own portable microscope which is bare bone and does not have a lot of functionalities but we make do with what he has.

Then the patient is ready for surgery but the table is stuck in the highest position and won’t go any lower! We try for a long time and finally gets it to go down!

We never know what surprises await us on an eye surgical mission trip. But it all works out at the end and the team is so happy we can continue on with surgeries!
