Closing Time.

Today was our last day. My feet are sore from standing on concrete floors all day. I have been working in the pharmacy and we have seen every patient over the five clinic days. They have been full days; non-stop days. One day, I didn’t even get to the washroom until 4:30. For me, that’s a miracle (and not an everyday miracle). But, all said and done, I am not tired. I am invigorated. I could not have worked with a better team and seeing the smiling faces of these beautiful children helps take your mind off your own problems.

Working in the pharmacy has given me a new appreciation of the role pharmacists play in our health care system.

Miranda, our pharmacist, was amazing in how she was able to partner with the doctors to find a medicinal solution or to find a substitution med when we ran out of the first choice.
So, my feet, they’re not really sore, they’re experienced in a way that could only have been Guatemala.
