More Doc J Pics....Warning Some are Graphic

A Sign in Creole Asking for Help

Doc J asked me to post these pictures some of which I think require a graphic warning. He wanted to share these medical pictures not to sensationalize what he is doing but to educate and give a better appreciation of what he is dealing with on a day to day basis in Haiti. Doc J and his team are doing some great work under very arduous conditions, please keep him and the people of Haiti in your prayers.

The right thigh wound and the "water"- baby Agaella's plight

This is an amputation of an arm our team worked on.
She was pinned beneath the rubble after a concrete barrier fell.
Her husband pulled her free. We had to complete her amputation.

A Haitian womans foot prior to our amputation. Ironically this
poor woman's foot condition was NOT a result of the quake.
