One little head…

This poor little boy was brought into the clinic today by his mother and grandpa- his head was covered infected sores, full of pus and yuck. Anita and Breanna carefully cleaned and dressed the sores and wrapping his head with bandages and anti-bacterial creme. He’ll be coming back for a checkup again soon. The sad … Read more

Some normal cases on a normal day…

Anita had a burn patient come in yesterday and today. As she cleaned the wound, the woman convulsed with pain and jumped almost out of her chair! Anita used some lidocaine to ease the pain… “Otherwise,” she said, “She’s be in my lap!” And Breanna dealt with a man who had an accident with his … Read more

Update on the ear surgery!

There was a somewhat nasty post we did a little while ago in which we showed a lady who’s ear had been almost completely cut off. She returned for some other ailment day before yesterday, so we snapped some pictures of her ear- it’s quite amazing, because if you didn’t look for it, you probably … Read more

The little things…

Saturday some little girls come to the clinic, asking for some bandages for a few little sores on their shins. Breanna took them into the clinic, dressed their sores and applied some ointment to them, putting a bandaid on top. I had to think about the many serious cases that come into the clinic, how … Read more

Only one left…

Yesterday was the beginning of a challenging week for many of us- since all the fluent Creole speakers are gone to the States for Thea’s wedding, those of us left behind are having to learn quick! Breanna is the only American nurse left in the clinic- it presents some unique challenges for her and was … Read more

Update on the “Clubfoot Boy”!

Greetings in Jesus’ name, dear readers! Many apologies for the lack of content on this blog recently. The other day some of us visited the home of the “Clubfoot” boy, Enddy. If you are having a hard time remembering him, take a look at his previous updates by typing “clubfoot” into the search box on … Read more
