Busy week and weekend


This morning I awoke to a call to come to the hospital for 2 C/Sections.  One of our doctors who does anesthesia is away for 5 days at a workshop and our nurse anesthetist is on leave for the month--so I am call to do anesthesia.

We started work at 0700 and worked until just past 10 a.m.  Delivered 2 baby boys and moms and babies are doing fine.  Then I came home to shower, eat and go back up to do the discharges for the day.  I got home again about 12:30 p.m.

On Thursday morning Megan and Soren and Sara took off for a few days at Rhino Camp.  They were a big help to us here and we wish them well as they return to Stanford to work on their prototype.  Sara got to help with a C/Section when she was here and was so excited to do that.

Megan returns tonight and will be here through Friday to work on her research.  Monday and Tuesday Dr. Isala and Major will be away in Chinhoyi for a 2 day District health meeting--so I get to be here by myself keeping the hospital running.  I refer all C/Sections to Karoi if there any--so we pray everything will keep very quiet!

  1. This is what doctors do every other day. One of my aunt's is also a doctor, and i know very well how busy life the doctors are spending. And when they go overseas for mission, then it is even more hard work. But i salute their ambitions and dedication.
