Xepol and dueling festivals!

The guys and I headed to Xepol this morning. We were warned that we may not have many patients..........have you heard this story before? Well, there were two festivals near the area where we have clinic and it was obvious they were trying to drown out each other's music over the mountains!

We only had a few patients today but ones that I think we will be able to help.

I had told you about Victor about 6 weeks ago. He is a young boy that has seizures almost every day and hits people. In the last two weeks he has only had 3 seizures and has only has 3 episodes of hitting people. Both of these are improvements and I am very encouraged by it. Victor even seemed to have a little personality today. He talked a little bit and even had a few smiles.

We also had a patient with Bell's Palsy. The sad part of this story is that she had been to see someone who had given her 16 injections of vitamins telling her that this would cure it :(

I hope to also see her again in October.
