It’s been a day full of the unexpected! First of all, it started out by taking someone to the International Air Terminal, followed by a fast in-and-out at the ER of Miami-Dade (trauma hospital) to check on our patients, only to find that both of them had been sent home. Great news! Then an (almost missed!) meeting of leaders who led us to a food distribution just off Delmas Highway. Later, a second trip to the airport – 2 others were leaving. This was followed by the admission at Miami-Dade of a very, very sick little girl, Marie Lynne, and a 4-year-old (Esthère) who may have broken her elbow in a fall yesterday. Tonight Marie Lynne is still in the hospital under observation while we were able to take Esthère and her mom home at the end of the afternoon. Did they ever enjoy the simple meal that was given to them in the ER! I’m always amazed, and moved, by the compassion and professionalism of the health care volunteers (they come down for one or several weeks of continuous 12-hour days) in the trauma hospital. One more thing: our team was able to set up two big tents today (at Chambrun) which will be used as classrooms as school starts getting underway later this month.
