Modeline, Travel Notes, Supplies

(This is Karen)

I spoke to Sharon yesterday: Modeline has had her operation and seems to be doing well.

She left for her surgery at 6:30 a.m. the day before and finally went into the OR at 4:30 p.m. The doctor removed a 'bowel cycst', and sent her 'home'. One of the girls comes in during the day, and one in the night, to stay with Modeline. Sharon takes her to the clinic in a cab every two days to get her dressing changed. She will have a followup appointment with the doctor while Sharon is still there.

Other news: The intern who arrived on Easter Sunday left on Tuesday morning to go scuba diving at Cormier, so Sharon and the kids can still use help rebuilding the wall. The staff is back at the house after the Easter break.

For those of you traveling to Haiti: Sharon says she has had reports that the usually abysmal roads outside of Cap-Haitien are in even more abysmal condition following the rains and washouts.

Thanks to all who are sending or have sent supplies. Sharon will try and send an update before she leaves for Canada the end of April.
