Hey, just a quick prayer request from the mission back in Ailegue. It seems that cholera, which seemed to be in remission around Haiti, has possibly come to the Les Palme area!! Please keep this in your prayers as we try to determine the extent of the problem, and what our response to it should be. We'll try to update you a bit later.... Gotta run!!! -steve

|After the damages in the shop... Head wounds really bleed|
like crazy!! I put on a towel and stocking cap, kept things
under control for the next 4 or 5 hours till we had time
to stitch it up..........
|Anita and Thea began their repair job at around 1:30 A.M. The longest|
stretch of time is always cleanup; picking out dirt and hair that may be
in the wound and can cause infection if you don't get it all out
before it's stitched up....
|Only took 7 stitches, not too bad....|
|At this hour, sometimes things are funny....|
|And sometimes just downright painful!!!! :)|
|But I was fortunate- at least I had a sweet comforter|
with me!!!!! :)

I couldn't resist showing you all another one of the babies born at clinic. After a few very traumatic births recently, we were very happy when the last baby was born vigorous and crying! We actually have a lady in labor at the clinic now so we might not get a lot of sleep tonight. That's the life of a nurse! :-) Better enjoy it now as I'm going to be in the States for a few weeks visiting--May 9th-June 7th. If the blog is a little silent, you'll know why.
