It is almost 10pm here on the 15th and we are finally getting showers and ready to go to bed. It has been an incredibly intense and emotional day. I am not sure we have any words to adequately describe what we have seen today. I was in the Post OP area all day and was a part of teaching some amazing students as well as a witness to the most horrible conditions I have ever seen. Josh was a part of history today...the first cardiac ablation in Cambodian history. This was a successful procedure and Josh as well as the Cardiologist from Denver said this was something they would never even try to do in Denver.
I know there will be more words tomorrow....much to process. The internet connection is so slow that I am unable to download pictures. I hope to get to wifi tomorrow and post some pictures. There are 2 more ablations tomorrow and I will go with Josh in the morning then hopefully to L&D soon. The needs are so great that they are putting the nurses where the most critical cases are. I know God is so near...keep praying for strength. We are exhausted, but so in awe of our amazing God.
Mom, kiss the kids for us and give them all an extra long squeeze. We miss them, but know they are being well taken care of. Gina, we will skype with you sometime Tuesday your time. We'll try before the boys go to school.
Thank you again so much for praying...we can so feel the prayers.
