Carolyn's Update!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I've tried to do a blog entry a couple of times again but they would not post. I'll make a short try again.
The Ethics and Management class I have been teaching to student nurses finishes on Monday when they hand in their a project that each one is working on. The next two weeks they will be Team Leading on the wards and we'll have a post work conference each day to see how it's going.
My friend Nancy who returned to Africa with me on December 11th will be leaving tomorrow to head back to Omaha. It's been great having her here with me these weeks.
Here are couple of photos. The first is of me chatting with a student nurse and the second is me with another student, going over her project.

Today's Positives:
1. The students have all passed the Ethics and Management course I taught this past month.
2. I've enjoyed doing some remedial math with a few first year students who are having problems with math.
3. I've maintained a 6-7 pound loss since leaving the States. Now I need to work on losing more.

Have a good day. emoticon

    How wonderful things are going so well for you. You had a real tough time but you made it through and got back to Africa your second, or maybe your first home.
    I know you love the people in both places.
