Tuesday

Last night it rained very hard for what seemed like all night. I was worried the roof was going to fly off! We also wondered if the river would be too high to return. In addition, we felt an earthquake tremor.

The patients were all lined up at the clinic this morning when we arrived. Some of them walk for hours and without shoes. Since I can’t do ultrasounds, I’ve been doing physical exams on pregnant women. One 16 year old was having her 8th baby.

Kim is seeing many patients with eye problems who are excited they can see with their new glasses. The people are so grateful for the care they’re getting. We’re taking a short lunch break now. And the goat I saw grazing in the field the other day is no longer there… …pretty sure we had it for dinner.
