This happened near our neighbors house. Baboon turf wars! Awesome! In more lighthearted moments, our girls will sometimes be amused while they are in school by watching out their classroom windows at the baboons going down the playground slide.
The best blood for donating!
The WhatsApp message went out over the hospital group, “We have a desperate need for O negative blood for a postpartum mother!” A patient was being brought in by ambulance with a reported hemoglobin (blood level) of 1.7. That is very low. Normal is around 15. We needed blood urgently. After a few phone calls to some of our special donors, two brave men, one working at Naomi’s village, and the other working at RVA came when asked to give blood to save that young mother’s life. One of the two is an experienced donor, the other definitely had the look of how in the world did I find myself here. (You can guess which is which from the picture.) However they were similar in that they knew that what they were giving was going to save a young girl’s life! Thank you Mark and Robert.
This is what happens when there are not enough lockers for all the workers in the operating rooms of the hospital.
