Market Day

View from the Hospital
Some things are no different than at home.  The number of women in the hospital had dropped and I was happy to be able to do rounds in an hour.  It took only a few days and a few very sick new patients to expand the time it took to do rounds.  I like to do rounds to start the day but the outpatients begin lining up first thing in the morning so frequently I see outpatients for 2-3 hours before starting rounds.  

One of my new additions is a lady with HIV and TB requiring a chest tube to drain fluid from her lung.  She is stoic taking a few Tylenol for her pain.  

Today was Market day so fewer people came to OPD.  Terry and I were able to get to the market and experience the chaos.
