We arrived home safely and are COVID negative! A few travel issues required us to come home 2 days earlier than planned but we are grateful there were no major issues.
As I reflect on the month, I see God's hand on so many details. He orchestrated patients to be seen, all the help I needed in clinic, and miraculously healed his people. I am grateful for my neurosurgical colleagues who were so helpful on several cases. Enock had a benign growth in his sinus that was impinging on his eye and brain. He underwent excision of the mass. It was quite difficult to remove but we were able to save his eye and there was no cerebral spinal fluid leak.
I enjoyed teaching the general surgery resident assigned to me. His name is Yves, from Burundi. He tells me his height is a trait found in his tribe. He certainly learned how to handle trauma this month.
