The hospital is busy, as well, with call every night for the last month. There is a predominance of females and again we see so many times it is the women who suffer disproportionally in the developing world.
During our time in the states, one of our favorite patients, Dublaise died. He had suffered so much with AIDS, Tuberculosis and the various complications associated with his illnesses, may he rest in peace. We feel blessed to have been part of this boy's life. We pray that we may be able to help prevent these illnesses in the future and to have the fortitude and grace to be able to continue to care for the others who have similar illnesses.
