PORT AU PRINCE, HAITI (NBC) - Frustration is mounting in Haiti with survivors facing a seemingly impossible recovery, but there are also signs of hope with the arrival of more help. It's almost indescribable just how difficult getting by day-to-day is for earthquake survivors. 

You have things like choking traffic or a powerful aftershock that causes panic among people who are already extremely stressed. There are no jobs for many adults, nothing to do but sit and wait or look for food and water. 

Fortunately there is now a noticeable force of recovery. The U.S. military has spread out like a wave over the island. The Marines are distributing food and the Navy ship Comfort has arrived. 

The floating hospital could be the difference between life and death for some of the quarter of a million people injured in Haiti. 

Amazingly, rescues are still taking place as well. On Wednesday a child was pulled out of the rubble of a house alive, giving hope that others may still be breathing under the rubble as well.
