Les Cayes, Haiti
This man is 86 years old.
He is in the hospital but is up and about walking up and down the hallway. His doting family is here also.
He tells me that he remembers World War II very well and the atrocities of Adolph Hitler. I told him that my dad was at Hitler's home at the end of the war.
This man has a heart rate of 28 per minute. He is in complete heart block.
He needs a pacemaker which can only be done in Port-au-Prince by a private cardiologist. And he doesn't have the money anyway.
What to do?
