Today I woke up at 5 am with some abdominal grumblings…. That resulted in a less than pretty couple of hours. I have been very careful with produce, water, and food consumption but figure that either our “bottled” water still has some critters (I drank like a gallon yesterday) or I caught something from one of the 200 people I triaged. In addition, since we have no running water or electricity we have no ability to wash our hands while at clinic utilizing antimicrobial/ bacterial gel as our only means of disinfectant… This resulted in me having to stay home and miss clinic today. L 3 of us have experienced this GI delight in the last 5 days. So I don’t have much to report that is appropriate for this blog except I slept a ton, have adequately medicated myself with Cipro and Imodium, and am feeling better, just weak.
