Day 2 - Rehabilitation and Recovery

Our day started with an early church service and a chance to meet many of the people who have made the grounds of the hospital their home for the past weeks. There are hundreds of people supporting family members who are learning to walk again, learning how to make the best of their new reality.

Mid-day I had the opportunity to accompany the Union College Rescue and Recovery team as they performed an amazing service at a multi-leveled building that collapsed, trapping many inside.

We accompanied Paula to the site and she shared that many of her family members still hadn't been pulled from the concrete pile. The team from Union performed their role with compassion.

The Park Ridge surgical team did more surgeries today than yesterday and the cases are getting even more varied. Tomorrow we have an amazing story to share - her surgery is at 7 am. Good Night...
