Last walk down the hall to the laundry. Last report given at shift change. Last singing in the ward with the Patient Life Team (wish I could play you the sound file). Last trip to the market. Last ride on a Zemidjan (motorbike) in Lome. Last time I will tuck my patients Fati and Kossiwa into bed : ) So many last times in the last few day.
I'm excited to be going home. I'm sad to leave another phase of life. I now hope I can one day go back someday to be part of Mercy Ships again. I'm excited to keep practicing my French now! I was so pleased to know the West African day workers. I will miss them the most. I'm excited for non-buffet food. I'm excited for open spaces! I'm excited to see Mercy Shippers again in other places around the world!
I'm in Ethiopia, on my way to London to catch a flight to Sweden! where I will have a reunion with my previous South America travel buddies! and eventually home again.
See you all soon!
