Learning is a very interesting thing, and can be a topic with meaning of a mission. No matter what kind of services one can constantly learn and practice, while improving the quality and attitude of the service, and most importantly to self-purification along the way. As in November 8, six nuns from different rehabilitation centers under our organization, who were sent to Yá Xī to learn from Fr. Tonetto how to take better care of ulcers. First of... all is to understand the ulcer is the body becoming numb due to lost of feeling, hence the patient do not have conscious to protect one's body. Also limb deforms because of drug effect that hurt the nerves. Leprosy is an infectious disease that spread through saliva, blood, and air. The only “drug" to prevent the infection is to attach importance to nutrition that enhance the body's immunity.
Ulcers Care: first of all to take into account measures that prevent trauma is to observe for the appropriate shoes. Most ulcers are caused by pressure, friction and scalding on the feet and buttocks. We also specially learned from the priest and the workers how to do insoles, so that when we return to our own rehabilitation center for the elderly we can make appropriate insoles that fits the shape of their feet. These will help ulcers heal.
In particular, we also studied the use of aseptic cloth. When I returned to the rehabilitation center I started practicing everything I have learned. So every day I started to do wound disinfection, cleaning, applying drug and bandaging with aseptic cloth for the elderly people. Sure enough I can see the wound becoming smaller day by day, and the edlerly becoming with a cheerful mood to see their own wounds become smaller and smaller. From their smiles I feel the trauma of their hearts have been cured. Also our team works together with patience and perseverance. The most important thing is confidence. When we try hard to work with God, the more you pay, the more you feel joy and tranquility.
