Busy day yesterday. Lots of GSWs to head, neck, torso extremities. The pattern seems to be hours of quiet punctuated by runs of 3 or 4 serious patients. The heat is getting fairly oppressive. 109 yesterday and 111 or 112 today…and our generator just blew so no fans until we get it fixed. Saw a few rockets launched from a mobile unit yesterday. Took a short trip to a nearby doctors without borders facility for some supplies. The whole city looks like Port Au prince Haiti the week after the 2010 earthquake. We have been adopted by 2 local cats. Even trash kitty won’t eat mystery meat. All are well. May not have service for a few days. Don’t worry. Everyone is fine.
