First Day of Medical Work Today

March 7, 2011 at 6:32 pm Categories: Guinea - Hope Clinic

After a fantastic night’s sleep (following 16 very bumpy hours) we have begun the medical part of our medical mission! There was abundant opportunites to consult with patients: Mike Kirk & Kenny Parker saw potential ortho surgery patients; Scott Morehead and Judy Schreiber saw adults and children, and Haroon Sohail saw pediatric cases. Kerry intrepidly worked sorting donated equipment and is eyeing a potential installation of a intercom/phone system. For the time being he hasn’t beeen allowed in the operating theatre, but he secretly has hopes of performing a hernia repair or two.

We’ll write more tomorrow and try to post some pix.

Thanks for the prayers,

Kerry (with editing by Richard S. Morehead)
