To the Doctors, Nurses and Volunteers, Merci Beaucoup!
The 51st. AHDH Mission is coming to an end and as usual it’s a day of mixed feelings. Sometimes I’m not sure how I feel when that day comes to leave but one thing I know for sure — it’s easier to leave this time. At the end of the November Mission we had to leave knowing there would not be a Doctor in charge at the Hospital. In December right after Christmas, Dr. Rene returned to LaVallée and hired permanent staff at the Hospital St. Joseph, Dr. Walkens Desir, and now no patient will be left unattended — we are all more comfortable leaving this time.
This Mission was a very busy and successful event. The Dentists had 175 cases — the Optometrist checked 300+ people and the surgeons removed 6 Cataracts as well as a few minor surgeries and the Ultrasonographer did 50+ exams. The surgeons performed the first Thyroidectomy and several minor surgeries with ease. Like always, I am amazed at the energy and steadfast commitment these Doc’s express, watching them always makes me feel like I’m not doing enough. But at night when I empty my cards to the hard drive and cruze through the images to make sure I’ve got what we need for that day, I laugh at how much I really get to be a part of all the medical services that take place in our Hospital. Like I always say these amazing people are my Heroes!
