A early morning gate knock announced that a baby was about to be born. We hauled out of bed and scurried down to clinic. About an hour later, a baby girl was born. After checking the mom again, we discovered, much to our surprise that she had twins. We got ready for baby #2. Two hours later her contractions still hadn’t started up again, we talked to our new DR, Dr Medor who started coming to work at clinic 3 days a week, and decided it’d be best if we transferred her. We headed out towards Fonde de blan thinking we’d have to do the 6 hour trip. Meanwhile Mis Dani talked to a Dr at Villa clinic an much to our surprise they told us they could take her in. So instead of a 6 hr trip it turned into a 3 hr trip. We sure weren’t going to complain about that. A few hours later we heard that baby #2 had safely arrived into this world. We had a lot to be thankful for.
This past weekend, we enjoyed Bryan and Ashley Beachy with their 4 children as they came and stayed with us for the weekend. Verlyn went back to the states for a week of visiting his family and a much deserved break. Saturday we took Bryan and his daughter Payton on a hiking trip to the waterfalls. Hiking with Bryan, we learned a lot about the plants an trees of Haiti as he has worked with agriculture here in Haiti for 12 years. Like always, it was great getting out and hiking thru these beautiful mountains. We even took a different trail coming back so we got to see different scenery. All the sore muscles the next day sure were worth it all.
We are so happy about having Dadou here for domestic help. So far none of us nurses have complained about handing all the cooking over to her. It leaves our afternoon more open to going out and visiting people or emergencies. Plus Dadou’s cooking is hard to beat.
