Korduni, the 14 month old son of Niomom who takes care of the house here, was fainting and had a very high fever last week. I took them to the American Doctor’s hospital in Karatu that is a two and a half hour
drive from here at Olbalbal. They kept him for two days there and were fearful that the major swelling on his head was caused by meningitis. We were very afraid. To our immense relief the problem turned out to be a very bad boil gone bad. Korduni is back at Olbalbal now and doing fine.
