TB ward pet

I round on our TB patients once a week.  Most of them are there to regain their strength before they feel ok about going home.  For some that means they are there for 1 week, for others 2 months or more.  This week when I rounded, I was surprised to see a little puppy who has also made the TB ward his home.  Apparently, one of the patients bought him and has been looking after him on the ward.   He isn't very old, but was sure pretty cute.
