An Interesting Day

Today was a day of firsts. In trying to always be prepared for the unique challenges and difficulties that Sudan offers, we learned how to put in IVs, carry injured or unconcious people, and stitch up wounds. It was a good day.

I remember my first real exposure to blood was in AP Biology when we were required to go to the Kijabe Hospital and observe a surgery. I lasted a literal 2 minutes and sat down for the rest of the surgery in the room next door.

Today went a lot better. The kids enjoyed watching the adults run around, put holes in each other, and sew pigs feet. They even joined in and carried each other around on the stretcher.
