Experience in the Hospital

(Posted by my daughter)

In general, I am getting more sleep here as I got to be around 10:00 or 10:30 PM and wake up at 6:30 AM. I was surprised to find that it gets dark around 7 PM and the sun rises at about 7 AM and I am sleeping so well with the cool nights.

Yesterday I worked in the hospital pharmacy.  I helped pre-pack meds in the morning and was allowed to help fill and dispense prescriptions in the afternoon.  The doctors write the prescriptions a little differently here but once I got used to it I went faster with filling them.  The drug supply is limited here so if something is out of stock, the patient simply doesn’t get it.  I saw malaria meds given to several small babies but since they were going to be treated at home, they must not be severely ill.  Every morning at the hospital they hold a chapel service and I am getting ready to go to it.  Afterward I will go to the pharmacy again.
