While I look forward to the restfulness that often happens on weekends, this weekend is a little different; one of the Ghanian doctors got married earlier this morning, so most of the doctors (all except 1) are gone.

  I’m so thankful for Friday! We are all so worn down from a hectic week and are looking forward to the weekend. We had rounds in the morning (busy as usual) followed by clinic (more busy than usual). It felt like we were working a Monday! I saw more patients than I can remember […]

  I love Sundays! We got up earlier than normal to round so that we could go to church. We finished rounds in record time. After rounds, I went to the church in TB village. It was great! The church was under a tree near the nurses’ head quarters at the TB village. They used three […]
