I finally got one

So yeah, I definitely ate something I shouldn’t have because today I woke up with explosive diarrhea. After taking some Cipro I went to the hospital to see if anything was going on. There were 3 OR cases today, 2 of which needed spinal anesthesia. The first spinal anesthesia stick I did the nurse anesthetist walked me through it. The second one I did without his direction. The most amazing part is seeing the CSF flow out of your needle. Its also amazing to me that the women aren’t screaming as I push this 3 inch long needle into their spine. Even though technically it shouldn’t hurt, I could see myself being a very difficult patient to do this on.

My wife and I will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary while we are on the mission. I think that I will take her to the game park for about 2 days. Hopefully we’ll see some cool animals.

I just found out that the mother (who’s C-section I assisted on…you know the one that my wife helped me suture up) decided to name her little boy after me. My wife and I befriended her during her labor and prayed with her before the C-section so I was truly honored by the gesture. The pictures below are of Jaysson Mwale!
