Preparing for the First Day of Surgery Tomorrow

The team visited Nepal Medical College as a whole today. Through the last couple days, team leaders and members from Syracuse and LA have been trickling in, with the last group from LA arriving today.
Surviving almost 22 hours or longer flight from NYC to Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and bumpy bus rides through busy traffics in Kathmandu, groups have been arriving in and staying at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kathmandu. The team has been phenomenal in keeping up their enthusiasm through jet lags and time difference of almost 11 hours. While the Operating room prepared for upcoming challenges of surgeries behind the scene, many groups visited different sites of Kathmandu valley and outside to get a feel of people and culture.

LA and Syracuse teams met today to coordinate a plan for patient surgery and care tomorrow and to outline tentative plan for the rest of the week. The journey upto here has been long and exciting, and the team enthusiastically looks forward to the first day with surgery tomorrow.
