Late PM Update From Tom - Two Aid Workers Killed. We Are Safe and Okay.


From Dr. Tom Ritter / Late Sunday night via SMS/TXT: All surgeons from Puerto Rico have quieted down, and what was once a 7 operating room hospital is now closed for night. Three to four hundred patients and post-op patients will hopefully make it through the night, then we go to regroup.

I am told two aid workers were killed. Rest assured -we are safe and security is not a problem. Gonna nap till 5:30 - yahoo! Please do not be in hurry to come here - there will be work for med teams like Katrina for years and years. Nite nite. Carol delivered baby that was named...Carol.
