Busy Thursday

Casey (Licia and Lori's brother) is visiting for a week and brought a flip video with him for RHFH to use. It's awesome!!

This morning I woke up to this outside our gate... (warning: there's a shot of a woman with no shirt on because of medical purposes- all is shown). It is Thursday, so last day of clinic for the week and we must have had 200 people sleeping out side last night. This is over an hour before clinic opened... more people were arriving as I shot this.

I moved the 4 worst kids into a tent that I'm living in right next to the rest of the kids, so that they can get better rest and more isolated care. 2 of them are on IVs, and 2 are on feeding tubes. Keeping them hydrated is a full time job for everyone here. The 2 are kwash kids and not doing great, please pray for them. Darlens was really sick, but this morning seems to be getting better, and Stanley- a little boy who had been seizing gave me a high five when I rolled out of bed :)

heres a link to the Rescue Center blog for a tour of RHFH from Casey and a little video about Darlens:


  1. These are wonderful Anna! Thank you! Praying for those kiddos that you are fighting so hard to get healthy. They are lucky to have you. :)

  2. Unbelievable. I have never stood in a line that long in all my life, let alone for health care needs. Anna, I just wanted to comment tonight to let you know that I am reading and praying. I don't always comment, but I've been reading your posts for a little while since the quake. Sometimes I just don't have words. What do I say? So, I just wanted you to know that I am reading - and praying - Darlens is on my heart especially.

  3. Oh Anna, I have an 18 month old - he is robust and rosey. My heart fills with sorrow as I see little Darlen's stick legs... And since reading your blog, a fresh thankfulness with every bite of food and snacks (!) that my little one enjoys...

    Are you a nurse? God bless you all for your labors of love!!
