I am back from Africa, after a very busy tour of western Kenya with the SHIP team from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport. Drs. Don and Amy Givler and I had the opportunity to supervise a fantastic group of residents and medical students from LSU, providing mobile health clinics at 18 sites over the month of February.
After a 45 hour trip home (about half of that layovers in airports), we arrived Saturday night, and I have spent most of my time since then sleeping, doing laundry, and trying to recover from the jet lag.
It is a bit odd to have missed a third of our winter in Louisiana. Some of the trees are beginning to green up, and their are blooms on the Japanese magnolias and redbuds, and even a few azaleas are blooming. Did I miss much?
I will probably have more to say here about what the month in Africa meant to me personally. In the mean time, I am getting back in the groove of my life here in the good ol’ USA.
