(Note: I have just returned from a tiring but enjoyable and productive trip to Ethiopia and am committed to a long overdue updating of this blog, before the end of 2012. For now I am posting some initial thoughts I was moved to put down on paper while in Ethiopia.)
Reflections on Life from Ethiopia - by Gary Segal Dec.16, 2012
I have had the privilege of accompanying Dr. Rick on his patient visits and examinations on a number of occasions, including 3 days on this trip. Rick is dealing with some of the most sick and destitute people in the world, but I find the experience interesting, at times extremely tough emotionally, but in the end nourishing for the soul. I must say that each time I accompany Rick I always admire his bedside manner and sheer humanity; doctors all over could learn a lot from Rick in this area of patient care.
