The hottest time of the summer. Highs 97 to 104 with 100+ most days. Light winds at sunrise then 30-40 MPH by midday and blowing grit. Gawd, I'll miss this place. We do 2 round trips to the hospital most days, about a klick each way, so about 2.5 total each day. Feels like you opened an oven. Can't wait to be back in balmy Pensacola where it's only 95 every day.
We continue on with the teaching and patient care. 3 patients were in the ICU yesterday and seemed to be getting the right kind of care. One of the midwives consulted me on a lady issue and was grateful for the info I shared.
We also had visits from an ANA General, a district commander for the police and an important village leader who brought his son (broke his leg in a motorcycle accident).
Despite the news from Afghanistan, our part of the country is quite peaceful, so don't worry y'all. I'll be home in a month or so.
