October 3, 2017 - Nepal - Babies R Us

Monday afternoon was a big baby day at Chitwan Hospital.  Much of the day was spent screening patients.  Additionally, the Operation Medical Team worked side by side with the local staff and delivered 4 babies in 3 procedures.  How can that be?  One birth was a set of twin boys.

Our gracious host, Prof. Dr. Harish Chandra Neupane sponsored a dinner for the team feature many local dishes including Momo, one of the most popular dishes in Nepal.  They are bite-size dumplings made with a spoonful of stuffing wrapped in dough.  Momos are usually steamed, though they are sometimes fried or steam-fried.  The filling of meat or vegetables becomes succulent as it produces an intensively flavored broth sealed inside the wrappers.

After a night of rumbling thunderstorms, the team started the day with a group photo (see below) in front of our ‘school bus’ and conducted a morning huddle with the local staff to review protocol, observations and the cases scheduled for Tuesday.  As of this early this morning there are 7 cases on the schedule and more screenings for the morning.

Thanks for checking in and more to come!
