Two days ago, Marta and I visited our local children's clinic, to get an official confirmation of Marta's lice-free status. We obtained a piece of paper there that should allow us to spend a month or so at the state-run sanatoriy in Pushcha Vodytsya (fresh air and all that), the one we were at a year ago.
The place has had some repairs since I was there last (don't remember when); the biggest improvement is that they no longer have that horrible thing on the ceiling in the room where they see everyone from newborns to elementary school kids. Otherwise, the place looks more or less the same.
Also a couple days ago, I learned (RUS) that the head of Kyiv's municipal health department, Lyudmyla Kachurova, had been arrested for allegedly mismanaging some 1.5 million hryvnias (around $190,000) of budget funds meant for doctors' salaries - and she's at a psychiatric clinic now (RUS), watched over by the police. All I can say is I hope it's a state-run clinic, not a private one. That would teach her.
Here're some pictures from our children's clinic (a few more are here):
And yes, Marta doesn't have any lice.
