This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Medical care ashore

Yesterday Sally talked many times on the phone to a pregnant American friend who lives ashore, who had been suffering from acute diarrhoea for 24 hours and needed advice about which drugs she can take. Unbelievably, there was no way of obtaining any decent advice ashore, as the only reliable doctor is away in America on home leave. These are some of the very reasons why we found living ashore so hard here, and why we jumped at the chance to come back to Mercy Ships when a position was offered. Olly
