Most of you have probably heard that more than half of the delegation spent the day in the clinic today with a stomach bug. We have taken advantage of the unfortunate situation by learning about the Dominican health care system! Students are improving quckly with the help of suero and are in remarkably good spirits. Students are taking bonding to another level by carrying each others’ suero IVs, packing roommates’ overnight bags, and lifting spirits with jokes, get-well cards and games. The healthy students did some creative problem solving by redistributing English class teaching assignments among them and the show went on!
We are so proud of the courage, compassion and comittment ALL GLIMPSERS have shown today! Tomorrow, we expect everyone to be checking out of the clinic and you will receive morning phone calls from your (formerly) sick students. Back to our regularly scheduled blogging tomorrow!
