Busy Clinic in Chutzurop

Today, we had a very day in Chutzurop, with some very sick patients.

I look forward to following up with a lady who had a large abdominal mass and another one with a severe urinary infection.

Everyone made it back to the hotel in the late afternoon and we enjoyed a good meal together.

Today was Dr. Neil's birthday so the group of students surprised him with a birthday cake!  When the waiter asked how many candles we wanted, Susan suggested three.  Her thought process was one for the past, one for the present and one for the future!  It worked well!

Lisa told Neil that we would not push his face into the cake, which is more-or-less a Guatemalan tradition.  The kinder version is for the birthday person to take a bite of the cake........Neil was a good sport and played along!

Tomorrow, we will head out in three different directions.  Each one of them will be quite a drive but it will give everyone an opportunity to see more of Guatemala :)
