Thanks to my dear friends in Tennessee I have the use of an iPad to blog while in Uganda! So exciting!
Thank you so much to all the friends, family, clients, and midwives who donated so very much to this trip. You are all amazing and very much appreciated. Just to let folks know there are only 3 things left on the list from the Ugandan Midwives that I haven’t been able to get yet. You all are amazing!!! Only things I need now are some twin sheets, blankets and washcloths – seriously down to the nitty gritty!
Extra Special Thank Yous to:
Treesa McLean, Tenaya Jackman, Maria Iorillo, Sue Baelen, Pacifica Maternity Center, Esther Healey, Rebecca Plum, Mary Perez and the rest of the midwifery community for support and encouragement
Regina, The Pope’s, The Kane’s, Jimena, Meredith and Jason, Jennifer and Scott, Stefan and Christine, Pam, Denise and Bruce, Kathy and Bob, Michael and Nicole, and especially to Adam for putting up with the giant pile of supplies that I still have yet to pack and am adding to daily…I swear, packing it all up is the next thing on my list…
Here’s some of what I’m bringing:
Brand new Doppler for the Birth Center
28 Fetuscopes for Traditional Midwives
Herbs, Vitamins, Medications
Brand new surgical instruments for suturing
Brand new thermometer
Rechargeable Batteries and Charger to reduce battery waste and pollution
Tons of gloves and gauze, bulbs and deLees for suctioning babies lungs, and lots more!
Thank you all so much! I can’t wait to get there and get working!!
