Teaching!

Great teaching this morning on the management of simple fractures and how to use plaster of paris.

More great teaching on cervical intraepithelial lesions and cancers by visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid. I think my preceptor is more upset about this issue because we have already seen two ladies with likely invasive cervical cancer in her office this week (and it’s only Tuesday).

It’s preventable. Not generally curable, but preventable.

Things that Make Me Happy

  • Kandodo warm bread
  • Sunshine on the flame trees
  • Not getting peed on when holding a baby
  • Short power outages
  • Mosquito nets
  • Paying someone to iron my blouses (ever heard of tumbu flies? Yuk!)
  • Frogs
  • The massif turning pink in the sunset
  • bug repellent with DEET
  • headlight flashlights
  • iPod
  • pineapples

Things that Make Me Sad

  • Children dying of malaria
  • When the test comes back positive
  • When she says her husband will beat her and throw her out of the house
  • When you say, twins, and she says, oh, no!
  • When you check the cervix and it’s already too late
