The last 2-4weeks has been a whirlwind and my computer is not working! So In a quick overview (I hope to write more later and post pictures), these are the highlights:
The Iditarod. Bringing my patient some Louis l’Amour books from a friend. Clinic. Eight calls in four weeks. Kindness. Coffee. Lots of coffee. The sunsetting after 10 PM. Walking over a mile out on the ice shelf. Delivering a baby. Medevacing a few patients. A doctors appreciation breakfast. Music night in Nome. Alaskan Amber.
Lots of laughs and stories and conversations. Late nights. Walking out to the edge of the sea ice shelf where the locals launch their boats to go walrus hunting. Deep ice burgs. Turquoise and navy blue. We can see tomorrow from here.
Women’s health. Backed up sewage. The Gambell lodge-a humble hunkered trailer home like building where birders pay tens of thousands to come from all over the world to see amazing migration of wildlife. Winds and more winds. Refreshing being off the grid.
Weekend trip to anchorage! Free with frequent flyer miles! Need a new computer!
