IDF Field Hospital - Update

I text messaged my friend, Dr. Alex this morning.  He later called me (isn't technology nifty?). After working 48 hrs straight he finally got some rest.  He called just after he woke up due to another earthquake. He said the work was frustrating because they have nowhere to evacuate the most serious cases that even the field hospital can't treat.
On the news this evening it was reported that a U.S. Navy hospital ship (with over 1000 staff!) just anchored off of Haiti.  Hopefully, they will be able to treat the tough cases.
