Ghana Day 5
Post by Ann Marie
There isn't much of an update today from Mai since they were busy at the hospital. The couple times we spoke were less than a minute because she was in the pediatric ward at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital. The only thing she was able to tell me during the very quick call was that she was taking the temperature of the kids and then we were interrupted so she was off to work again.
Mai said she delivered the medical supplies but I didn't hear how it went. We are still working on getting the additional glucometers and test strips from Johnson & Johnson in Dubai and South Africa since the One Touch devices she brought use a test strip that isn't licensed in Ghana. Figures...Mai brought them five devices too. The folks at Johnson and Johnson are being really helpful trying to get Mai alternative devices to give them.
Short and sweet but I also received the official text from Mai saying "I am alive". She had promised that no matter how busy she was she would at least let me know once a day that she was still alive.
