Kilema Hospital visit














Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Diane and Kathy attended the morning report at the hospital. We listened to prayers and sang “SIMBEYA” in Swahili. No one laughed at us! After report, we were invited to the operating
Theatre to see a cesarean section. A beautiful baby boy was born – mom and baby doing fine.

While there were some differences to Canadian operating room practices, there were many
Similarities.

Dr. Masawe was very pleasant and answered our many questions. He even had a few questions
For us!

Hi Kathy and Dianne,
Great photos at the hospital. I saw a colleague of Kathy's today in Alliston. Debbie McKnight was attending a workshop at the hospital. Debbie is my cousin by marriage. I told her to check out the blog. Enjoy your time in Kilema.
