We are heading home today. Here is Dr. Kondrot being searched carefully at the Port Au Prince airport as
It’s Day 3 afternoon surgery for our Haiti Mission trip. Here is the group of patients we have ready for operation.
Today begins in the clinic with a group picture of us and some of our patient from yesterday’s day of surgery. They are all here today for a post-op examination.
Early morning in the clinic, all of yesterday’s patients are back for post op check up. And more cases are lined up for today.
After a quick break for lunch, we resume our day of surgery.
First, we have a visit with baby Leila, she comes from the nearby orphanage.
After a good night sleep, we wake up fresh and energized and ready for the day’s work. Patients arrive and line up in front of the clinic. We get a souvenir picture with Russ then we have breakfast and we start the day working fast and furious.
Here is our souvenir picture of Russ and the two of us, bright and early before we start our workday.
Arriving at the clinic in Haiti, Dr. Kondot gets set to work immediately. We were not planning to work today, we just wanted to unpack the supplies, set up the operating room, check out the microscope and see how the sterilization station operates. But as soon as we enter the main area of the clinic, patients are waiting to be looked at. So we get down to business and start patients examination on the spot.
One patient after another, Dr. Kondrot begins one day early I guess. We are already on the ground, we might as well work!
We have a patient whose eye pressure is 60! The clinic staff is hoping dr. Kondrot can do something for her.
Looks like we have to lower her pressure right away!
Haiti: We can’t wait to Haiti to see what it is like.
From the comfort of our living room, we have been watching and hearing about Haiti for the last ten years. Nothing but one disaster after another. Haiti is ranked the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Read more to see what Haiti looks like today.
We are now getting ready for our next trip. Haiti, Croix Des Bouquets, working out of the facilities of Living In Faith. We are very excited.
We connect with Russ Montgomery to coordinate out flight tickets, we are planning to fly out together as Russ is a pro at getting in and out of Haiti and wants to make sure we have a safe travel, that our supplies will get in and not get stuck at custom and of course watch over our security while we are on the ground in Haiti.
We invite Russ over for a home-cooked meal and work on plans for the upcoming trip
