Another Day at BMC

Today was another day in the operating room and again it was pretty slow due to the insurance issue. I was able to take some pictures today and would like to share some of them with you.

Every morning starts with a devotional period for staff before they report to work. Today when the devotion was over, some of the staff received longevity awards. Workers with 10, 15, or 20 years were recognized.

After devotions and awards we made rounds. Here are a couple of the patients we saw today. A young man with a strange rash on the legs. We are not sure what it is and if any medical people out there have any ideas, let me know. The rash started shortly after taking an unknown medication.

Any ideas??

Later we saw a young girl with neglected burns that we had skin grafted. She still has a way to go, but is better.

Healing, but still a way to go

A couple of days ago I posted a picture of a tree in our old yard, but Elisabeth said it was hard to tell how big it is. So today I took another picture with Peter and Erin under the tree to show better how big it is. Peter and Erin have been here almost a year running the guest houses and taking care of all the volunteers who come to work at the hospital. It has been nice to be able to spend a little time with them.
