The burden of responsibility
It's closing on on 2AM and still in the clinic - seated next to a patient that I've been trying to get medically evacuated off the island for 14 hours. We're getting hit with 70 MPH winds that are coming across the runway instead of safely down the middle. Haven't found a pilot yet that is excited about making the potential 8 hour flight across the turbulent Pacific only to find they can't land due to the weather here.
We're not expecting a break for seven days. I'm hoping for a MEDEVAC before then since I'm already running on fumes ...
