Hi, I've left my introduction to the very last minute! I'm in Paris airport about to fly to Conakry. Looking forward to spending a few weeks on the ship as an Anaesthesia provider, and scoping it out for future opportunities to serve. Have loved following the great work of mercyships over the past year and can't wait to get involved. I've left my dear wife, 4 young boys and my dog behind in Adelaide, Australia, so I'll be missing them greatly. My eldest (9 nine years old) broke his arm a few hours before I flew out from Australia, which helped give him (and myself) an even greater appreciation for having good medical care, and thus understand the importance of me going for this short time. Looking forward to meeting you all.
