We continue to get casualties mostly from areas along the Pakistan border, a marked difference from the autumn months when the action was frequently in the surrounding area. One of the casualties last week had multiple gunshot wounds including one that pierced the wallet in his breast pocket. Unfortunately, it did not stop the bullet but it may have spared him worse damage than the lung lacerations he received. He should survive the wound. His wallet is a different story. Sadly, it could not be revived.
One of the consequences of the more distant location where the action is occurring is the greater delay between the call for and the arrival of patients. This brings up the subject of the post, how to spend all that time waiting...
