Both of those quotes are from different readers. I really like them. People have been sending me so many great quotes that I no longer have to look for them. If you have any favorites then feel free to send them to me.
I spoke with my parents tonight and my mother says that she loves the blob.
Today was a long day. I felt like we drove all throughout Kabul. We ended up eating lunch at KAIA and dinner at ISAF. It actually snowed for the first time today! Barf came from the sky. Yes, believe it or not, the word for snow in Dari is barf. It was a really beautiful site seeing the snow coming down. Here is a pic.
Today at the clinic I spent a lot of time with the OB doctors. I really enjoy teaching them. It is so much fun when you have eager learners. All three of them were taking detailed notes. We went over all of the various routine prenatal assessments, common medical problems related to pregnancy, and various treatments. With everyday that passes we make more and more progress.
We had a patient come in that had been shot in the abdomen. The ER doc wanted my advice on what to do and I told him that he needed exploratory surgery ASAP. He was going to medevac him to a place that had surgical capabilities. You never know what kind of patient will come through the clinic doors.
I wanted to share a photo that one of the cleaning crew members took. I had no idea that they did this. They roll out a carpet and sit together at night for dinner.
We have been getting so many care packages and letters lately and I have not been able to post all of the pictures so I apologize in advance if your care package did not make it on the blog. Just today I got a box with 20 small stockings filled with goodies. I put them all under the tree.
Thanks for reading.
