Another gunshot to the chest.
A 10 year old with a gunshot through her knee.
A 15 year old with a gunshot wound through her ankle.
A frightened woman with a miscarriage who bleeds and bleeds. I finally manage to remove the dead fetus and other tissues. The uterus clamps down immediately. Her hemoglobin is 4.
Another woman with a miscarriage. It is the midnight and the IPD is full of flying insects. They crawl down my back as I hunker over the examining table. I use a camplight on my forehead. My husband bought it for me at Mountain Equipment Co-op in Toronto. It works quite well. I do the D and C and she stops bleeding. There is crap on my shirt and blood on my toes.
I crawl back to my tukul at 2 am.
