Surgeon in the House.


Dr. Mike is a general surgeon from Florida who has come to serve this community for the next 3 months. His happy manners and quick wit have already made him quite popular; and I’m confident his many skills will make him even more so in the coming months.

He will be working at the government hospital since we don’t have space in our clinic. Plus, the government hospital has a tiled room designed for just such surgeries.

The staff has been organizing the equipment and setting up the room for the last few days. Yesterday they did their first surgery --a hernia repair on a 7 year old boy. I’m told things went very well.

It sure is nice to have a surgeon in the house!
