Birthday girl...

Today was a good day; busy but good. I saw 56 patients and many conditions including malaria, anemia, chest infections, giardia, schistosomiasis, prematurity, malnutrition etc.

The most memorable moment happened at the end of the day.

I had spent some time diagnosing and treating a little girl who had a number of different illnesses. Anyway, I found out from her father that today is her birthday. So, just before she left the clinic I told her that she could pick out a gift for her birthday. She was pretty excited and after a good look at the various stuffed animals, she proudly chose a little African doll. She was very happy with her gift. It may very well have been her first doll ever!
