Some of you reading the blog have already been here as volunteers and have asked for updates about what we are doing and what our current census is. Well here you go:
Report for yesterday Thursday 2/11/2010
431 New patient visits
~250 Patients on site
~1000 Total number of people living on the hospital grounds
14 Surgical procedures performed in the indoor O.R.s (STS Graft, 4 ORIF humerus reductions, Hernia repair, Thyroidectomy, Laporotomy, anoplasty, Foot Flap, I&D Subscapular abscess, ORIF Tibia, Leg STSG, Femur ORIF)

And now for those of you who don't have a clue as to what those procedures are...
One of the fun parts of this job is the opportunity to hand deliver gifts from kids in the states to our patients. Here are a few of our kids here as the receive hand made cards from the LLUC Childrens division and a few toys from my boys.
Thank you all for your prayers and your support.
