American Red Cross volunteer Bob Pearce recently returned from deployment to Saipan where he worked directly with more than 400 people affected by Typhoon Soudelor. New to the Red Cross, the typhoon relief operation in Saipan was Bob’s first large-scale response. He’s already responding to his second, serving as a virtual volunteer from his home base in Minnesota for the Red Cross response to the wildfires in California. Below, Bob shares with us his Saipan experience .

Information about Typhoon Soudelor and its damage may be interesting, but it doesn’t tell the real or whole story. Many of the Red Cross volunteers used the term resilient to describe the islanders. Others said they were patient. For me, the people of Saipan are remarkable.

Saipan is a 12 by 5.5 mile island in the south Pacific. Guam, Tinian, Rota and Saipan form the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, a United States Territory. With a small garment manufacturing industry in continuing decline, the 53,883 residents of Saipan have relied on tourism to help their economy. So, when Typhoon Soudelor slammed into the island in the late night and early morning hours of August 2 and 3, 2015, damage was felt in more than one way.

NEW CARLISLE, Ohio – When Dec. 29 comes around New Carlisle donor Donna Pursifull celebrates.  It’s not her birthday; it’s not an early New Year’s party.  She gives thanks for the doctors and blood donors who helped her cheat death 40 years ago, then welcomes another bonus year of life.

Donna grew up in Bardstown, Kentucky where she first donated blood at her high school.  She continued donating in the fall of her freshman year at Murray State University. She came home for Christmas feeling on top of the world.  “I was in the best shape I’d ever been,” she recalled. “It was just not my time to die.”

Christmas was over and Donna and her friends had time on their hands. When the first snow of the season fell, they knew exactly what to do: go sledding at the Old Kentucky Home Golf Course.  “Everybody went there,” she said. “Later people would ask me if I was the girl that closed down the hill.”

Had a great couple of days but today I’m quite tired. Fortunately for me, Bill is off today but he’s tired too. So we’re just sitting back, sipping a little wine and watching the Tour de France.

Funny how this all works out. I slept reasonably well. Don’t really have a reason to be so tired. I haven’t had the pain when I sleep on my hip and that what was bugging my sleep pattern.

There’s not a lot to post about. I noticed yesterday that the swelling in my belly was going down. 🙂 But it’s back today. The healing is obviously still going on.
