Tracking Ed Monroe as he travels to Haiti and other exotic(?) places
Monday, February 06, 2006
Wow. Monday is done. We saw 284 patients and I was upstairs at 4:20PM.Unheard of in the past. However, we start at 7:30 AM so that does make a difference. We are now running out of Colace(a stool softener). That was one of the meds that the mice chose to eat so we started out with less than expected. We are also using more of the Ivermectin(for severe scabies cases) than I had expected. That may run out on Wednesday. We spent Sunday at Cap Lemondue hotel. It was as nice as ever, the pool was a little cool and it was cloudy (it was hot and sunny today as we had to work-figure that!) but warm. Donna and I ate the sauted shrimp. It was delicious. The food came on time and we were done early. Their satellite connection was not working so we had to wait till we got home at 8PM to watch it. Chardonnay, the bus boy that I met on year one and worked with, has been promoted to bartender so Donna snapped our picture. Tonight, our Haitian housekeepers prepared our supper of rice & bean with a tomato, onion sauce and a beet salad. One of my favorite meals here. Tomorrow is the election here in Haiti and we still do not know what to expect. We will have to wait and see. Donna has given me permission to return here in May as that team does not have a pharmacist. Two trips in a row with a Teens Encounter Christ(TEC) team and TEC weekend in between should be interesting and taxing. Not much news from home and that is both good and bad. We are about to enter week two. It is flying by fast. I'll try to write again tomorrow. God bless all of you.
