We have completed our last patient rounds, which included 16 dressing changes and 2 "mini- codes" on patients in distress that we were passing by. Everything went well, and our work here is coming to a close.

"You are now part of Haiti."

Dr. Maxie, the Haitian physician who is the chief of the hospital had kind words for us this morning. He said "God brought you to us. You have been wonderful. You are now part of Haiti."

We could ask for nothing more.
