I've been closely following the action (and inaction) in Louisiana/NO w/regard to Katrina, and thought about you. Since the Baylor College of Medicine is helping to provide medical care (http://www.bcm.edu/news/features/item.cfm?newsID=453) for the Gulf Coast evacuees, I'm assuming you're involved w/the ongoing efforts. How are things on the ground and how are you (and your family) holding up?

Hi elissalowe
I see its been dashed near 6 days since you posted this. I hope erp7e is OK.
Hell; I hope its only the lack of time or power... Its funny how one gets attached to people never met. I have been wondering how many other members are affected?

I expect erp7e is fine - he's been online several times since this was posted and has responded to other queries. But he may not have seen it, or else bumped it to a "B priority." Another possiblility is that he simply doesn't want to discuss it. Which is, of course, ok - and his prerogative.

Didn't see this post til now. Yes, we (Baylor), as well as UT residents, are providing care to many of the New Orleans evacuees, at our affiliated hospitals as well as triaging some people at the AstroDome. I'm at the private hospital (St. Luke's) this month, which isn't getting hit quite as hard as our publics, but we still are getting more. I've seen a few in my clinic. Resident-wise, a lot of our upper levels were pulled from ambulatory rotations to staff additional ward teams, especially at the publics. But we are holding up okay, thanks for asking. Texas Medical Center has a ton of resources (the largest medical center in the country, and I believe the world) so it is a good place for them to come.
