Baby delivered via Caesarean section on account of Severe Preeclampsia and meconium stained liquor.
Baby has severe birth Asphyxia and we have done well on resuscitation so far but the child needs a NICU. So
I have duly referred
I fell on a friend who loaned us his latest Toyota Hilux pick up
I improvised an ambulance like in the picture
I picked up my ambubag and penguin for periodic supplementary oxygenation and suctioning respectively.
We have arrived at Ekye and are waiting for the Pontoon for another 20 minutes crossing on the Volta lake to Adawso en route to the Easten Regional Hospital Koforidua.
Please say a prayer for us”.
