Not so Pole Pole…..

When Julie and I climbed Kilimanjaro 5 years ago, our guides used the phrase, pole pole, to tell us to go slowly slowly in order to keep from succumbing to the oxygen deprivation of high altitude.  Well, that's not good advice for clinic.

What a fun, tough, sad, tragic and hopeful day.  I don't even know how many people we saw, but I think Julie and Gayle will share pictures of the waiting room.  We found about a dozen people who will go to surgery in the next three days.

I know a new word in Swahili.  Haraka Haraka!
