Sent Home

I sent Marie to a hospital in Port-au-Prince very early yesterday morning. I spoke with one of the hospital doctors on the phone and told him Marie's medical history. He told me that she would be evaluated but that they had no open inpatient beds for her.

Marie called me before noon and was despondent. She said the hospital did nothing for her and she was headed home on a tap tap. She said that "...if I lie down, I will die."

I asked Marie if she could go to the General Hospital in Port-au-Prince right then. She said their staff is on strike.

And OSF remains quiet about Marie in Peoria.

What to do now?
