Last full day in Haiti

Update from Amanda Mauck, communications specialist:
We’re ready for our last day, I think. Today is going to be a busy day – we had five surgeries scheduled, but one boy came in with fever and cough. We won’t be able to perform surgery on him. The doctors do seem to be pretty upbeat today in the OR, though.
Dr. Eubanks is in a hernia surgery right now. Dr. Anand is with a 15-year-old boy with typhoid, giving him IV antibiotics. He’s being isolated in the clinic – he came in yesterday and came back today for IV fluids.
We have to get packed today. Today is surgery and packing, and Dr. Anand is going back to Sacred Heart to get final information for a study he’s developed. More to come.
Pictured below: Dr. Trey Eubanks, Pediatric Surgical Group, performs the second of three hernia repairs planned for the day. The team also have a breast mass in a man to take out on the OR schedule.
