Yesterday was a whirlwind. I saw 50 Out Patient Department patients including 11 new admits. We had so many kids with pneumonia that one of the women's wards was turned into a second Peds Ward.
Today was nearly as busy and it was nice to have Joe here as he was able to take care of a lady with a thyroid nodule for me and then later a man with a surgical abdomen. The 33 year old man has had increasing abdominal pain for 4 days. To everyone's surprise he had a gangrenous gall bladder with about a gallon of pus in his abdomen.
Hopefully his young age will help him pull through.
