101-Year-Old Patient Receives Surgery Aboard USNS Comfort

first_imgBy Dialogo June 09, 2011 I am happy that age is not an impediment for this form of surgery. Unfortunately, I know medical personnel that create barriers for performing these procedures. I congratulate this team for such work. thanks once more from JAMAICA Command & U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs Personnel embarked aboard Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) performed a cataract removal surgery on a 101-year-old woman while anchored off the coast of Tumaco, Colombia, June 6. Irene Becerra, a native of Araño, Colombia, arrived at the Escuela Max Seídel medical site, June 4, complaining of a headache and loss of sight in her left eye, which the Continuing Promise 2011 (CP11) medical team later determined was caused by a cataract. Lt. Cmdr. Francine Worthington, the patient administration department head aboard Comfort, performed Becerra’s initial screening. “When I first met Irene, she immediately greeted me with her radiant smile and comforting hands,” said Worthington. “Initially, I didn’t even know she was 101. When asked what the secret to her longevity was, she told me, ‘God’s blessing’.” Shortly after her surgical screening with Worthington, Becerra was approved for cataract removal surgery. “I was nervous at first,” said Luz Becerra, the daughter of Becerra, of the trip out to Comfort. “We left it all up to God, but with the wonderful flight crew and medical staff, the flight was calm,” she added. Becerra received her surgery aboard Comfort the morning of June 6. After a two-hour surgery and a recovery period, Becerra, the oldest surgical patient for the CP11 team to date, will soon gain vision from her left eye. “I want to thank God, the medical staff aboard Comfort, and everyone else involved in making this procedure possible,” said Becerra. Worthington said that she was honored to help Becerra throughout the screening process, which led to her undergoing the life-changing surgery. She added that this surgery is representative of the United States’ commitment to the people of Colombia. “A smile is the beginning of love, and works of love are works of peace,” said Worthington. “The partnership begins one person at a time. Ms. Becerra represents the beauty of the Colombian people.” last_img read more

Officer shoots woman at gas station near Albany

first_imgPORTLAND — An Oregon woman was shot by police Thursday after pointing a replica handgun at them following a car chase, authorities said.Amanda Lynn Gatewood, 44, of Springfield was listed in critical condition at a Corvallis hospital. Albany police Capt. Eric Carter said Gatewood was driving a stolen 2000 Suzuki Vitara when she led police on a chase along Interstate 5 from Springfield toward Albany, a roughly 35-mile trip. The Oregon State Police and Linn County Sheriff’s Office joined the pursuit during which spike strips were deployed.Gatewood left the freeway at about 1:30 a.m. and stopped at a Chevron gas station 4 miles south of Albany.Gatewood got out of the car and ran toward the entrance of the store. She pointed what appeared to be a handgun at police, and was shot by an officer from the Springfield Police Department, Carter said.Carter said the gun turned out to be a “highly realistic replica” of a semi-automatic handgun. He declined to say how many rounds the officer fired and in which part of the body Gatewood was struck. The officer, whose name has not been released, was placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation. The Albany Police Department will lead the investigation.Gatewood filed for bankruptcy last year while living in the Central Oregon city of Sisters. Documents show she owed thousands of dollars to medical groups, the Internal Revenue Service and others. She worked seasonally at Hoodoo Ski Resort, had no money in the bank and her major asset was a 2004 Chevy Silverado.She was supposed to relinquish the Silverado by Jan. 1, but failed turn it over or file a written objection, according to court records. Her bankruptcy attorney, Andrew Harris of Bend, said Thursday that Gatewood “sort of disappeared” and he heard that she moved to either Portland or Springfield. On June 26, Gatewood was stopped in Lane County, which includes Springfield, for making an unlawful turn, failing to display a license plate and driving while uninsured, records show.last_img read more
