Another Update...

And here are some pictures from last month's trip

Elizabeth, me, and Jess
Elizabeth was on the 12/10 trip and after graduating from Cornell, is spending a year at a clinic in Port au Prince

All smiles, even a couple days after being hit by a motorcycle...
Hard at work - ps all of these pictures were taken by Jess...
Me and Andy
Gudrun organizing the ortho supply room non-stop - she had to be dragged out of there on our last day
Jess got the digital x-ray machine up and running - a big improvement!!
Hanging out at the airport


The Crudem Foundation has posted a link to my blog, so I think it deserves an update (considering it's been about 18 months since I updated it...)!  Since the last update, I returned to HSC twice (12/10 and 12/11).  Each trip was incredibly busy - ortho cases, cholera, trauma, etc.  Here are some pictures from Dec 2010

Bullet on x-ray - a rare occurrence in Milot!

Dr. Bernard after successfully removing the bullet

Organizing the ortho supply room - it never ends...

From the mural on the road to the hospital - pretty accurate depiction of my first trip

Tim and his goat made the mural!

Dr. Aversa

Hard at work!

We celebrated my "Haitian" birthday - not my real birthday but an excuse to get a cake from Cap Haitien!

Andy - great anesthesiologist from DC 

The one and only, Tim Traynor
