Thursday

Today, Cheun Nate (first name Nate) whom I wrote about on Tuesday underwent a Low Anterior Resection with a protective proximal colostomy. He now ranks as my lowest hand sewn anastamosis. I don't know if that rank is something that someone wants to belong to. The amount of energy and resources to get a surgery done is phenomenal, and I'm reminded of how nice surgeons have it in the West. We use our nurse to watch the patient post-op as the care in the hospital is so poor. The same nurse was our scrub. They also work out the business deal with the hospital as the pay is daily. I was able to use a Balfour retractor and was reminded how much I like the Bookwalter used in the West. Wednesday, we chose the tools that we wanted with the suture. Rebecca was able to work at the clinic yesterday while I searched on the roof storage area for instruments and what not. As you see, I found nice red shoes to wear today. Overall I believe that man was blessed, and I hope that I can use my skills in that setting again. Here are some pictures from my day. Rebecca and the girls went out to the palace, rode an elephant, and shopped. I don't know, I like my day just as much.
