Flat Denis

As part of the social studies program for Mrs. Giacomini's class in California, students created "body doubles" that were sent all over the world.  (These little people are commonly known as "Flat Stanley.")  Flat Denis arrived in my mailbox a few months ago by way of Jo-burg, South Africa.

While Flat Denis was here, he spent a day with me at the hospital.  We started with rounds on medical ward.  He met his friend Flat Stanley who just happened to be visiting Dr. Erin.  We stopped by pediatrics ward where he made friends with one of our patients.  Flat Denis learned about taking x-rays from Pamela and her crew.  And finally, he visited the tiny babies in the nursery.

Here are some pictures of his visit to Kudjip Hospital...

Apparently Flat Denis loved the weather in PNG so much that he decided to stay a while.  Now that the school year in America is coming to a close, he will soon be on his way back home to share his adventures with the real Denis.  Thank you for visiting!
