Today we all had a very intense and exciting day at the hospital. Carissa and Brittany spent the day in the maternity ward and also got to tour some different parts of the hospital. They were able to spend time with some mothers and newborns, see the morgue and the lab at the hospital, all of which were very interesting. They also got to play Badminton with some of the nursing students and they had such a blast doing that. Ashlie, Brooke and Leah spent the day on the Pediatrics unit and it was a very exhausting day. We were able to participate in patient rounds with the doctors and they helped us to better understand the diseases that are most prevalent on the ward. We also got to observe and help with infant CPR and we all learned a lot from that experience. It is always a joy to spend time with those children and their mothers, who love seeing us and getting their pictures taken! This morning, we all got to take a tour of the Chogoria Girls High School and it never ceases to amaze us how well behaved all of the students are. It was also really neat to see the farm on the campus where their food comes from, along with the bakery that supplies all of the bread! Overall, it was a very good day and we are excited to travel to Tharaka tomorrow for the medical camp!
Love from Kenya!
