Good things...

On a day like today I need to count the good things that occur.

I woke up in good health.

We had running water in the house.

The Land Rover started this morning.

Amara Kamara who was admitted in ICU with meningitis three weeks ago has been discharged today. I remember the first few days he was with us, with his persistent fits. We were afraid for his life. Today, before leaving he gave me the cutest smile ever. I am very thankful.

The city waste management came to take away a truckload of trash from the compound. That’s a good thing.

The Internet is working in the main building of the hospital.

I was able to arrange a free CT scan for an 11-year-old girl with severe headache. Hopefully it will help in reaching a diagnosis and potentially treatment for her.

A patient of mine has been admitted on the ship for surgery tomorrow.

I just had a very cold bottle of Coca Cola.

It’s the good things that matter today, no matter how small they are.

Sandra we are so proud of you and your way of always looking at the positive side of things instead of the other side. In your opinion the glass is always half full instead of half empty. So proud of you. Love always, mama and dad

Hi sandra, I ran across your blog tonight as I was googling a krio word. I'm on the ship right now just down the street from you. We just watched a documentary pride of lions friday night, heard the term wellbodi there, wondering if it is the same organization they featured in that documentary. Anyways God bless you and your work in Salone. Erin
