Haiti: It does feel good to see people turn around #HaitiDrDispatch



This is Anil's final email from Saturday, January 23, 2010. He sent it at 05:47 ET (am) and wrote it at the end of his sixth full day in Haiti. I've made minor spelling and grammar corrections and have tried my best to fill in missing words. I've added hyperlinks where I thought they might help.

Haiti: Child from the rubble returns #HaitiDrDispatch

Child from the rubble returns
(In this photo is 5 year old Monley Elize in the arms of Stanford ER nurse Gabriella "Gaby" McAdoo)

I'm reminded of the boy pulled from the rubble recently that is featured on CNN and LA Times [also Discovery]. Gaby helped this child, and he returned to visit her. He looked so dry initially, and it does feel good to see people turn around, especially those with so much left to see.
