Prepping for Day 1

After a seven-hour bus ride that turned into a nine-hour bus ride, we finally made it to Tellipalai Base Hospital and started prepping for the first day of surgery tomorrow. Anesthesia, the surgeons and PACU are ready to go after setting up the “operating theatre” (as they call it here in Sri Lanka).

Admitted patients in the male and female wards were screened to see if they would be suitable for surgery. Some waited for days to see if they could be helped, but unfortunately, only 6 of about 20 seen were eligible.

Tomorrow we’ll have more updates on how the surgeries went.
