I mentioned in a previous blog how I moved a month ago and have a new roommate. Last week a piece of her luggage arrived (big complicated mess at the airport) and it was like another Christmas (almost as exciting as the Quadruplets). The best part was the new curtains I am not a very stylish person and window coverings are not super high on priority list however one of the windows in my room had a hideous set of curtains, they were not even the same length so I was very excited to take them down. My friends and I had some fun with the curtains as you can see here.

Life at the hospital continues on, we are getting some more visiting staff coming the next few weeks as well as new interns (first year residents) starting so I think my pager will be going off a little more than usual. Today I was asked to do some MDI teaching, this is something that I do back home as well, however this being Kenya it was slightly more complicated. Aerochambers are expensive so we stock very few and never give them away. We usually use a plastic coke bottle converted into a spacer. I realized that we were all out of spacers so I went home to make one - cutting off the neck of the bottle was easy (this made the mask part as it is for a baby) however have you ever tried to cut into the bottom of a plastic pop bottle - it is hard so here is what I ended up doing
|I heated up the knife on the gas stove, I tried a candle but it was not hot enough|
|Then I cut/melted a hole onto the bottom of the soda bottle|
Anyway life continues to go on here and I am quite excited as tomorrow my parents fly in. It will be great to see them again, they will be here for a few weeks so I am sure I will have more pictures to share with you as we go on safari and tour a tea farm together.
