Today is Friday, the prayer day. We don’t have elective procedure done. We have a rest day after the morning ward round. I have some reading at guest house.

It’s my first day in the hospital. It is not busy, only around ten patients with two operations done. But I need to make a difficult decision. There was a 100yrs old man, bed bounded, admitted 3 days ago with infected, gangrene left foot. It is so bad that he needs amputation.

It took us around 8 hours to go from Sanaa to Al Tahl. We started early because we need to get to our destination before sunset. We had to avoid a direct route of around 3 hours journey as there are different tribes activities with number of kidnapping before.

I spent 11 hours in Doha, waiting for transit to Sanaa, capital city of Yemen. I finally arrived at the guest house at around 8pm. I was first told to have departure at 5am the next morning. I needed to have immediate briefing with the Head of Mission.

Return again after another emergency C-section at 9pm. It was a woman living far away in a village and was brought in by another NGO this evening. She had twin pregnancy with labour for three days. The baby was caught up. They thought it was a breech presentation.

Just returned from hospital at 9pm and finished my dinner. We had two emergency obstetric cases again this evening.
