Wednesday…..

Again 5 pound baby that is 12 months old.  Not normal. 

 

Another sick child on IV and feeding tube. 

 

The US Airforce team was back again yesterday.  They have been very helpful and great to work with.  They come with willing hearts to help the people and to help us learn all we can.  They wanted to teach Lori how to do a Intraosseous Infusion yesterday.  Now for those non-medical people like myself, this is how I would explain it.  When a child is very sick and needs an IV and you cannot get into a vein and the child is not awake (like almost dead) you can go into a bone to get fluids into them.  They needed a bone to teach Lori how to do this.  So we went to the market and got a goats leg for them to teach her how.  It all worked out great and Lori learned so much from these doctors. 

 

 

These two doctors below, with the help of their translators, saw many many patients yesterday.  We are so thankful for their help. 

 

  

Ephesians 2:8 (The Message)

 7-10Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

    What wonderful work – poor little babies – soon I will come to hug and love on them. I see my ‘brother’ Gilbert translating! Please give him my love, tell him I am praying for him.

    A few lucky military staff here in Ontario learn how to do IOs on butcher shop-acquired models, too! Also trauma training using lots of beef intestines… yucky for some, but useful way to learn.

    I have done it on chicken bones and now a new drill into an egg in the shell (& it doesn’t crack!)Humans….that is something I hope I never do. Perfect for Lori though! Perfect option!

    Hi,
    First of all i want to say it is a truely interesting article. as a paramedic and as a representative of Waismed Ltd., i would like to suggest that you would consider our fully automatic Bone Injection Gun for the use of IO. with the B.I.G. the procedure of intraosseous becomes much faster, intuitive and user friendly.
    i would like to invite you to visit our website at http://www.waismed.com and to get the impression of the device. the use of the B.I.G is widely accepted around the world for pediatrics and also for adult pateints.

    regards,
    Jonathan.
