Long Time

I have missed the internet these past few days and surprisingly missed blogging too, but like we all know, life can be busy and life caught up with me these past weeks.

We've had a death and burial of an aunt-in-law and trust me, it was as stressful as it can be.
It was one of the biggest events I have ever been a part of, starting on a Tuesday with a service of songs and ending on a Saturday with an Outing/Thanksgiving Service......Talk about STRESS.

Then came down the RAINS and the FLOODS,and like I said in my earlier post,the rains are just beginning and we should expect more.
Loss of Lives and Property followed the rains on Sunday, my street was flooded along the lower parts and rain actually entered a couple of houses down from mine. And as my office is located in a reclaimed area, there was a lot of casualties among the staff members who live around the hospital.
I really hope the government will do something about it.

I have also had some serious cases at the clinic recently,one of the reasons I opted for general practice is because I will not have to manage patients with serious trauma,tumors and cancers.
But I have had to see a young pregnant lady with facial fractures due to a road traffic accident and yes, she was not wearing a seat belt. She lost all her front teeth as well and I had to refer her to the teaching hospital and she is doing well right now.
I have also had to refer a 19yrs old boy with a growth in his jaws which I suspect to be a Cancer. I have felt sad and emotional about his case and have been praying for him.

Please Keep him in your PRAYERS and I will keep you posted.

Good News... Tunmise will be 10yrs old this month and that is joyful and a cause for Celebration.

it can't be easy managing other people's lives as a doctor, God bless you and may He keep your patients too.
