DAILY CHALLENGES

Posted: April 20, 2010 in Uncategorized

 

WE ARE NOW BEING AFFECTED BY THE GAS SHORTAGE THAT HAS GONE ON FOR OVER A WEEK

 

1, My truck still sits where we towed it last week as it didn’t appreciate all the water that was in the diesel.  Hope to have it fixed this week.

2, We have to limit where we go which is difficult as we have patients that need to be transported to various hospitals.  Today we have patients that have to go downtown to be fitted for their prostheses but we will have to find two gallons of gas on the street and buy them at up to $10.00 a gallon if we are to get the patients to their appointments.

3, Beth the other day was at the Miami Field Hospital delivering a baby with Joanna when it was announced that people should get their flashlights ready as it looks as if the generators will be running out of fuel.

4, I asked Junior to pick up the PT guy that has been coming daily to our field hospital and he wrote back, “No gas.”

5, All the diesel and gasoline that we had stored up is now gone.

6, Last week we had our three puppies spayed and were to have them back to the vet to get their stitches out.  We do not have the fuel to go up to the vets and so perhaps today the Heartline Field Hospital will become the Heartline Field Take Out the Dogs’ Stitches Hospital.

 

A fuel tanker was suppose to arrive to Haiti on Sunday and perhaps it did but the results have not as of yesterday been seen at the gas pumps.

 

RAIN. RAIN, RAIN

Man alive did it ever rain hard all through the night last night.  The street are a mess as plastic bottles and trash litter the streets and as you can imagine life in the tent cities is no fun.

 

CONGRATS TO BETH’S SISTER CHARLEEN

Charleen, yesterday, ran and finished the Boston Marathon in just over 4 hours.  She raised several thousand dollars for Heartline and we are very thankful as our ministry to those injured and displaced in the earthquake continues. 

While she was running a doctor who was running approached her after seeing her Heartline shirt and told her that he had just returned from Haiti on Sunday, the previous day, where he was volunteering at the Miami Field Hospital and that he met some of the Heartline medical people who were with patients at the hospital.

You can still make a pledge by going to:  RUNNING BOSTON FOR HEARTLINE
