Being in the Ibn Sina hospital and relieve patients in Mosul

I have good news about Dr. Muzahim Al Khayat dean of mosul medical college had recovered but he still have some complaints ( to know about whats happened to Dr. Muzahim Al Khayat visit this post and see the comments )This week was amazing I went to Ibn Sina hospital in mosul (General hospital) to take history from some patients and communicate with them. I needed to go to the 5 floor and saw young girl has renal failure and she is only 16 year old, she lives in small village, when she was 4 years old she lost both of here kidneys due to polluted water and she got new kidney from here mother, but now her body is rejecting the kidney and she has to do dialysis every week.

I asked her if has ever gone to school and she said that she had been left the school when she was 11 years old because of her disease. Also she had hypertension due to her renal failure because the kidney isn't functioning well. I tried to make her smile anyhow and to make her feel better.

I met another old woman (80years old) who suffer from her heart, she had angina from 3 months and she was refusing to come to the hospital because she afraid from needles, I was with my friend and we were talking to this old woman and she was very welcoming.

I had also bought new stethoscope from MDF by 20$ and it is really good one.
