|At the airport, nervous and excited.|
|A view from one of the gardens where we stayed.|
It was beautiful.
|My awesome roommate- Suz!|
We had so much fun and shared so many amazing experiences together.
She left her 9 year old quadruplets to come!
|First walk to the hospital|
|Such a great group of people.|
|We were so excited to start seeing patients!|
|Los Obras Sociales- the hospital|
|The tiny area that I assisted Dr. Pond with pre-op assessment |
and surgery scheduling.
|Roof top drinks at Sky Bar|
Where we ended many long days.
|Observing one of the lent processions.|
|Drea and Meeka were so much fun|
|One of many strong, Guatemalan mommas that I saw.|
|Sweaty after one of my many 4:45 a.m. workout's|
with Dr. Woolf's wife, Debbie
|Relaxing in the hammack|
|One of the many cathedrals I toured.|
|The front of our gorgeous hotel.|
|Chris Miller, one of the anesthesiologists, was a lot of fun!|
|Father Dominique did our devotionals every morning.|
He was so funny too!
|Dr. Pond visiting one of his patients post-op.|
|One of the post-op wards.|
Up to 12 patients in one room.
No HIPPA and they share one bed pan.
|Where the babies and children are kept.|
Some are very sick and some are just malnourished or have CP, or a cleft palate.
They get very little time outside of these cribs and they do not get to go outside at all.
|Yennifer- she smiled every time I talked to her or held her.|
|Rosalinda has been at the hospital for over a year.|
Her only issue is malnourishment from Celiac's disease.
Her mom has not been to see her in over a hear.
|My first patient to see post-op.|
|She was so happy to have her new knee!|
|Larry and Veronica were the other two PT's on our team.|
They came from Houston.
|I spent an afternoon in the OR watching surgeries.|
|Dr. Heinrich and Dr. Parsley doing a difficult hip replacement.|
|Dr. Woolf and Dr. Pond doing a total knee replacement.|
|They do such a good job!|
|Dereck (our chef) , me and Suz out to dinner with "the Woolf Pack"|
|An isolation patient's bathroom.|
Dirty, unlevel, unsafe and jam packed with junk.
|An isolation patient is shut away in a room all by themselves.|
No window, no t.v. and behind two doors.
|The patients loved doing group therapy and getting their pictures taken.|
|The Faith in Practice PT's with Otto and Jessica, who are the PT's at Obras.|
We made a great team!
|A view of one of the many volcanoes.|
Fuego was active and you could hear him "burping" all of the time.
|The doctors relaxing after a long day.|
|Another view of the volcano|
It was so hazy since it was active so I didn't get any clear pictures of it.
|Paul and Barb were married internal medicine doctors from Colorado.|
They were two of my favorite people on the trip!
|Such a great team!|
|Evening fun at our hotel bar.|
|We played lots of Uno and ping pong!|
|This 80 year old man said he was looking for a girl friend!|
|He kept me laughing.|
|Roberto with the sweetest eyes.|
|Smiley Yennifer and Franco|
|I never got his name but I held him a lot.|
He loved when I would sing to him.
|Sweet, happy boys loved peek-a-boo|
|Nan helping with a feeding.|
We got to feed a lot of babies, some who had a lot of trouble
swallowing and aspirating. It was stressful.
|This is Dennis. He has microcephaly from Zika.|
It took me over 30 minutes to get 1.5 ounces in him.
He loves to be held, but is in ICU.
|I tried so hard to get it in him!|
|Sweey, sweet boy.|
|Dressed up for our celebration dinner!|
|Headed to dinner.|
