Today was our first actual busy day at Hermon! Steady patients from 8-12. I gave 3 more shots, and Jess gave a couple too, including one to a, quite literally, kicking and screaming kid, who was eventually appeased with a monkey sticker.. Thank God for those!
Tomorrow we leave for Copan so today was our last clinic day for the week. Next week, my last week, the Doctor we love will be on Vacation, so I had to say goodbye to him today. It was a lot harder than I thought! It's strange how attached you can become before you even know it! He thanked us for all of our help, but he was the one who taught us so much!! He is an extremely hard worker and he really cares about his patients. I respect him so much. He also speaks pretty good English and has quite the sense of humor... We took the following picture today and Jess made the remark, "I look like a giant" (which, she doesn't!!) and the Doctor said something like, "no, you're just in the land of smurfs!" What sweet people these are. I love them!
After returning home I was feeling a little sentimental, so I started looking through some of my pictures. I just realized what amazing people are part of my life and I am so thankful... I forget too easily just how truly blessed I am, or maybe it takes being away to realize just how good you have it! To prove it here are is a very small sample of the people I love and miss very much!!
My sweet family:
My crazy/fun/wonderful roomies and friends:
and Mr. Joseph Handy himself!
I am a lucky girl!
God is good.
