Today I finally made it to Saint Marc! It was a long and interesting day, and I’m sure I will have plenty to say about it once I’ve had a good night of sleep. For now I will just say I’m glad to be working with some good people, and that I am already learning lots. For instance, you can provide scales in the pediatric unit, but that doesn’t guarantee that anyone – not even the “roughly 1kg” preemie – will actually get weighed.

It was both an overwhelming and exciting day. Definitely discouraging at times as well, but I am looking at it as lots of room for improvement. Anpil, as they say in kreyòl. Anpil means, roughly translated – plenty, or a lot. Tons. So, nou gen anpil timoun – we have lots of children! Or li bwe anpil – he drinks plenty. Or less exciting, li tusse anpil anpil – he coughs so so much!

So, I’ve got anpil tasks ahead of me, and fortunately anpil support in doing them. It’s going to be an interesting 6 months, that’s for sure.
