We arrive at Juan Bosch Hospital
The second day of our mission starts around 2 AM Portland time 6 AM Dominican time with the 4 hour time difference. I call it "O'Dark Thirty" After a quick breakfast we head to our bus, this will be our routine for the rest of the week.
Yesterday was a very fruitful day at the ILAC clinic. The doctors saw 60 plus patients and scheduled them for surgery throughout the week. Deciding who gets scheduled is based on a combination of injury, need, and whether the parts are available.
The doctors often consult together and with the 2 implant reps who also volunteer there time to come on the mission. It's a very collaborative process.
Later today Dr Duwelius will be "LIVE" streaming on our OWFTM Facebook page. Hopefully this will take place around 12 PM Portland time but as is the case with everything down here timing is very fluid :-)
