Screening Day

Sunday - November 11th, 2012

Screening Day

We woke up early and headed to the hospital after eating a big breakfast.  The screening began right away and so did the chaos!  It was a fast paced day filled with many families anxious to see their outcome.  Screening took longer than usual, but the children and their parents were unbelievably patient and respectful throughout the process.  The Liberian nurses were a great aid in translating Liberian English for us to understand.  We screened 127 patients in total and found that a majority of them were here for hernias.

All of the families lined up in the hall to meet with the surgeons.  We screened 127 patients today.
Tired and hungry, we were fortunate enough to enjoy a Moroccan feast cooked for us by a local restaurant.  The food was delicious, but after such a long day, we were all ready for a good nights sleep.
