Greetings from Port Au Prince. It’s a very hot and sticky night. I’ve been sleeping outside and thank god I’m there tonight. We’ve been working 18 hour days so when sleep comes, it’s critical to maximize the opportunity. Today we were able to take the late afternoon off and decompress a bit. First time since arriving. Took a nap. Now I’ll probably be up all night. But man is the Sudoku app on my i phone going to get a good workout.
Amidst all the chaos and misery here in Haiti, we’ve managed to find some moments of comic relief. Next to the hospital where we’ve been working there is an orphanage. We’ve all tried to spend some time with the kids. Here’s a video of some of the boys dancing to their own music….cause there sure wasn’t any playing ;-)
I’ll try to post a better situation report and reflection later tonight or in the morning. In the meantime I want to thank all of you who are following the situation via this blog. Most importantly I want to again thank all of the hospital leaders and their staffs in Oregon and Washington who so quickly stepped up to aid the Haitian people. I am seeing the direct impact of your financial contributions and have watched the medications and supplies you so graciously donated being administered every hour of every day.
Enjoy this video. There is hope for a better tomorrow in these kids.
