Monak who has been coming for treatment for his hand is doing much better. We kept him in the hospital from Tues till Sat last week. Now he is to be coming back everyday for treatment--antibiotic and bandaging. It's amazing how quickly a small wound can turn into a nasty infection and how with some effort it can start to heal nicely!
Yesterday afternoon we had a guy come in who had been involved in a fight and wasn't totally responsive. I put an IV in and monitored him. Then when a vehicle went out to T-Goave today we sent him out. He didn't have any major wounds, but there was something deeper going on.
This afternoon I was hoping to get my laundry finished and just relax a bit. I walked into my house and was just about ready to lay down for a bit thinking to myself that I sure hoped I wouldn't get a clinic call. Just about then the call came that there was a lady in labor at the clinic. I breathed a prayer telling God that I didn't have what it took and got ready to head down and check things out. God was again faithful to give me the strength. What an amazing God we serve!

Below is a young man who came in a few days ago with an incredible infection in his hand. It started out as only a little cut after working in the garden.
We've had him staying at the hospital now a couple of days so we can give him regular IVs with antibiotic and keep working the infection out. He's doing better. I trust he'll have a full recovery without losing any use of his hand.

This little girl was one of the people I saw today. She had a really nasty skin infection. You can't really see it in the pic, but her ear was just covered in soars.
The other day Thea and I just spent some time on the porch with our friends Selma and Tislen. We put a puzzle together. They thought it was the neatest thing. It was a new thing to them! We had fun!
