Caring for dad (short addendum)

Alex, the 10-year old boy caring for his father that I saw last week, happened to be in the office yesterday when I checked in at one point. Dr. Luzze (one of the Ugandan physicians and co-principal investigators on some studies) had finished getting an update from him. Dad was unchanged from the last visit. I spoke with Dr. Luzze and his administrative assistant Alice after Alex left. Dr. Luzze is looking to help fund Alex for schooling (30,000 USh/per month = ~$18 USD) for now and when his dad dies. Alice, like Ali and I, commented how particularly innocent Alex seems as this all happens. Hopefully we’ll see dad in the Tb clinic soon. Please keep them in your thoughts and/or prayers.
