Today is a National Holiday in Liberia. They call it Cleaning Day. It is like our Ching Ming Festival. People visit their relatives' and friends' graves.

Once again, Monday has been busy. While I was doing a change of dressing for a small girl with burns, our field coordinator came to the OT and told us that a pregnant woman had been admitted to ER with the umbilical cord prolapsed out of her vagina.

It is sad. We lost two patients today. The pregnant woman with burns whom we sent to Benson Hospital on Friday, died that night. The baby was stillborn. The mother's blood pressure remained low after transfer and she succumbed hours later.

I was still in a state of excitement after yesterday's operation, but we have had another even more exciting and horrid event happen in our compound this morning.

It's a great day for me today. I was called up at 2:30am yesterday morning and later operated on a boy with typhoid peritonitis. I finally returned home at 1am this morning after assisting John with two laparotomies. I had worked almost twenty hours with only a short lunch break in between.

Today is Sunday. I'm off duty but still I performed three operations in the hospital while John was making the ward rounds.

Today is Saturday and I'm on call. It's not too busy. I'm back from the hospital after seeing some minor problems in the ER.

Yesterday was a busy day. I was called back to the hospital at 7:30am and worked until 8pm, almost non-stop. I slept at 9:30pm after my supper and a bath, and woke up again at 5:30am. Fortunately, I had not been called. Or I might well be in a coma and they could not have woken me up.
