We left Nalerigu this morning about 6:00 AM and drove to Tamale to be in court by 9:00. We sat in court for 3 hours, listening to 3 other cases and then the plaintiff presented one final witness. After that, we were told by the judge to return next week to start the defense case. Needless to say, I was not very happy to have taken the day away from the hospital while here for such a short time. We got back to Nalerigu around 3:45 and I went to clinic to see what patients had been saved for me.
Now I am on call and will be going soon to make rounds on new admissions and to check for any problems.
It did not seem a good idea to take pictures in court, so I do not have pictures from today. But here are a few from earlier in the week.

There is a lot of thundering and lightening right now, so maybe we will get some more good rain. Tomorrow is another surgery day.
