End of week note

We saw all 200+ kids plus ~50 adult staff members. Diagnosed tuberculosis in one patient, found two kids with heart problems, others with routine skin problems, minor respiratory complaints, lots of MAL TET (headache) and back ache. My Kreyol is getting better but still have great trouble comprehending. The kids laugh at me. We handed out >200 hygiene kits (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, wash cloth) and all the crocs.
Tomorrow we go to the beach for some much needed relaxation.
Will try to send you a quick note tomorrow. I am very content and pleased with our trip and our amazing group of nurses from CBU.

Already making plans for next November
