Good News of the Day:
“There is always humming from somewhere. It is usually low and musical as patients try to distract themselves from phantom limb pain that is not at all phantom. It is 13 days after the earthquake. I am coordinating a 12-member team at St. Marc’s hospital, a government facility on the west coast of Haiti.” In this gripping piece, poet-doctor Sriram Shamasunder covers life and death, resilience, compassion, healing and hope as he describes the experience of working in Haiti directly after the earthquake.
