Some scrapes and complicated labor...

This young man was walking down the mountainside and stepped on a loose rock-
The resulting fall and injuries merited 3 stitches and multiple bandages!

He seemed grateful enough for the medical aid :)

Some lacerations on his leg.

As the young man was getting patched back up a lady came on a stretcher.

At first they could not figure out what was wrong with her, 
except that she was expecting her first child and was going into labor.

As they examined her more thoroughly they realized the baby probably had some serious defects.
They rushed her to the hospital in Ti Guave where she was transported to Leogane.
We have yet to hear how things went there...

Emergency runs.

  In comes another pregnant lady with complications, head injurys or some for sickness we can't treat and needs to be sent off to town, ...
