Day 4 of surgery

Emotion is everywhere!  Patients are getting the last-minute surgeries performed.

This morning was a big celebration on only for the Lord but someone birthday.  We are thankful for this day.  The doctors go visit the patients and their ready to go home.  One patient has somewhat of complications, but God shall supply us with all wee need to overcome this situation.  The patient is nervous he will have to redo the surgery next year because he still can’t go to the restroom.

As I sit here thinking how does the body form stones; what can I do to prevent this from happening to me? We had a patient this morning with gallstones, she said she was in a lot of pain and to be there when the gallbladder was removed and all the stones. WOW

To see a rupture gallbladder was something different as well.

In total surgery cases there was a lot of people with gallbladder issues than any thing I have ever seen.

Total surgeries per day 19-21

Total case load for one week with 3 surgeons’, 22 volunteers from all over the United States, 7 Faith in Practice employee we did a great job.  Job well done

It’s close to finishing the day, so many new volunteers on the Askenasy Team and we are grateful for the opportunity to learn, see, and meet new people.  Mission trip is a great experience because learning to appreciate the things you have and not complain about the thing you don’t have.
