A Little "STORY"
10 months ago
|When we first arrived, Molly and Hudson were shy, unsure what to think of their new surroundings. However, they soon got over their shyness. Molly especially reached out to the kids.|
|This girl has cerebral palsy. Molly is helping her play with a stuffed animal.|
|Molly invited this baby girl to stay with us.|
|This teenage boy suffers from fluid in his brain. His
body cannot support the head weight, so he has to lie down all of the time. There is no medical treatment. However, he had an amazing attitude. He was very excited to
talk with us. |
|This was the GHO clinic team. Although I served in the medical community for several years in Waco, this was my first time ever to wear scrubs. The young man to my left is Nathan, whom I roomed with this week.|
|These orphaned toddlers were eating snacks, seemingly having a lot of fun.|
|This teenage girl has Cerebral Palsy; her favorite thing to do is study. She loves to learn about anything and everything.|
|These were but a few of the babies delivered to the orphanage by the police. The babies had been found abandoned in trashcans or alleys.|
|This was our triage station. My job was to help organize the patients as they waited for their turn. My Chinese was not good, but at least I could tell the people where to sit and when it was time to see a doctor. Still, I long for the day I can have deep conversations without needing a translator.|
|The team was surprised when first arriving to this hospital. It was much more modern than expected, but the patients who came were from the surrounding counties. Most were very poor; few were educated. I spent time with those sitting in the chairs behind the triage station. All and all, it was a great clinic.|
