Rough day yesterday. Several patients DOA during major offensive as well as several critical patients w GSWs to chest, abd, and neck. After things slowed down, the soldiers we are staying w prepared a major feast, which we ate sitting on carpets laid out on the ground with a 30 ft long tablecloth in the center. Multiple courses.lots of fresh fruit. Someone even found ice cream and sugar cones somewhere. They have a soda here that is gum flavored. Tastes like amoxicillin suspension. We are all well. Temps have been better due to lots of nice breezes. We are all starting to acclimate too, as we are not drinking 24/7.
