Found out today that the lab results from Nairobi won't be ready for another month. The head of tuberculosis treatment for this area is going to come by next week to see if I can get started on the medication part of the treatment which will take a minimum of six months. The doctor here in Bunda has been coming by every day, cleaning the wound, bandaging, telling me he is sorry for the pain, and gathering the staff to pray for me. We had a plumbing leak and had a plumber (fundi ya bomba) come and take the pipe in to be rethreaded. Worked for at least an hour and a half and with parts the bill came to about $5.00 USD. Not bad at all. At least the plumbing works well.
