... fetal death). The patient has her first two children, live at home. She was a negative blood group and as a result of anti-D being so expensive here and patients have to purchase it themselves, many women don’t get treated, so perhaps this could be a contributing factor to some of the deaths and she also had PIH. In the next room a patient had presented for PV examination, she’d had a PV at 10.30 the previous night and fetal heart was normal. On examination, ...
... In the end Will came back down and organised a free 4x4 vehicle from the campsite to take 10 or so of us back up the hillside in the dark to have a meal (and drinks) there. Wifi was still non existent on my laptop but well worth the trip up there.

... a tusk! We took heaps of photos and ended up watching them for a long time. It was so surreal as they were so close. One had its butt facing us and suddenly there was a 5th leg and he was peeing and pooing at the same time. It was hilarious! Eventually we left and as we headed out a baby elephant following his mum walked across the road in front of our car. It was the cutest thing I'd seen up till then. There was a whole family in the bushes either side of us and we just ...
