Since our last post, we went back to Chiulo together for two more one week stints and Priscila had more in-depth vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) training at CEML. We've been packing up as Pri's been fitting in a number of gyn surgeries. And yesterday, we celebrated Zeke's 2nd birthday! Don't have the camera with me to upload those pictures yet, but lots of balloons and Zeke going wild over more trucks to play with. Other pictures below.
|One of our favorite things about Chiulo are the abundance of baobab trees. Such fun-looking trees, we also love the "popsicles" that people make out of the fruit.|
|Zeke loved walking to school in the mornings with Dr. Laura Marin (lovely public health doctor with CUAMM at Chiulo) and her two daughters (and friend)|
|Not every surgery during those 2 weeks were fistula repairs. This was a a stone i removed with Steve Arrowsmith from the bladder of one of the ladies who had a fistula in the past. Yes, i forgot to clip my fingernails for the picture.|
|Zeke, sporting his new favorite truck clothes and his favorite sapatos; gifts sent from our friend Julie Carter! Thank you, Julie!|
