RUMAH SAKIT

At the hospital on the mainland. Masit Dere is in much better shape. He talks a lot about his experience with the x-ray machine. Very funny. His wife has been a great support. We’re able to get the entire (first) 2-month TB medicines here for him to take home, which is really important. This quantity has not yet been available (at any one time) to him back on the island, and - given the remote location they reside - this has played a significant role in restricting his previous attempts to defeat the disease. There is the debate about whether one should be intervening in such situations, yes (definitely in my head, if nowhere else), but - all things aside - it is not at all easy to watch someone so dear to me slowly dying and so this is my decision. On a brighter note, happy christmas to all. Good day. www.sukumentawai.org
