It's pouring here in Kasei and the sound is magnified by the tin roof. I love it. The peace from listening to a rainstorm is quite wonderful. It's also the rainy season here in Ghana which has been a huge blessing because the temps have been (relative to Ghana normally) cooler. The first few weeks we definitely felt like we were melting, but now we occasionally walk outside and are greeted by a sweet breeze and pleasantly surprised by the temp — but there are still days when the heat hits us hard.
Maddie stayed in pediatrics and got to start and remove an IV, administer a few meds, get to know some patients' sweet smiles, and build relationships with the nurses. I moved to the lab and enjoyed it much more than I anticipated. I drew blood samples, helped run a few tests and enter patient information. Rachel spent a day in the pharmacy and then a few more back in the lab because the pharmacist was traveling. She successfully identified my blood type all by herself.
