From NYTimes.com:

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Fabienne Jean, a professional dancer who lost her right leg in the earthquake, hopped on her slim left leg through the dusty General Hospital compound on her way to a very important X-ray.

Once at the radiography clinic, Ms. Jean, 31, wearing a form-fitting black minidress with a chunky lapis-blue necklace, draped herself on the examining table like a fashion model. Then the technician entered and positioned her stump for X-rays bound for New York, where, if things worked out, Ms. Jean would be heading, too.

“Maybe my luck is changing for the better?” she said that day, more than two months after she had survived a raging deadly infection by reluctantly agreeing to an amputation.

But then began a tug of war between two health care providers over who would get to rehabilitate Ms. Jean.

Would it be the big New York hospital whose director of critical care helped save her life five days after the quake? Would it be the small New England prosthetics company whose foundation has been working since to get her up and about? Or would the two organizations find a way to collaborate?
