A day in the life...

Today T and I were able to briefly connect over ichat! What a blessing to have a few minutes together over the internet. The kids, however, were decidedly unimpressed that they couldn't see or hear daddy to talk with him. He was able to share a day in the life of the doctors at Tenwek. He seems so inspired and encouraged by the work of so many devoted people there.

8am: Morning group devotional, followed by start of day
(Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday are operative days, Wednesday is clinic day)
1pm: Break for lunch. The physicians head home to have lunch with their families, who live in rows of houses in a neighborhood-like set up 100 yards from the hospital.
2pm: Work resumes
4-5pm: Last scheduled OR cases, clinic patients
Evening: Bible study, home to dinner

In addition to the missionary doctors who work at Tenwek, there are many native Kenyan interns and residents, training there for their residency. What an important way to make an even wider and more lasting impact on the region's healthcare system.

Happily Ever,
Queen B
