I'm now waiting at Brussels Airport for a transit flight to Paris for the debriefing at MSF-France Office.

It's my last call duty last night. Perhaps I'm a bit excited, I can't sleep any more after about only one and a half hour's sleep.

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.
