Today, I had the opportunity to do clinic in Mactzul II for Sarah.
Sarah is in Santa Cruz today with Maury, Cecy and Enrique doing IVAA/ Pap exams for the ladies there. They have 30 ladies scheduled and will provide care today for half and then the remainder on next Tuesday.
This morning, I went to Zepela to meet Micaela. Her sister, Martina, usually works with Aura but today Micaela will fill those shoes. It is a great opportunity for her, as she wants to continue her education and study to be a dentist.
When we arrived in Mactzul II, we thought that someone had STOLEN the church building!! When we made the turn and found the barren lot, I just stopped the truck!
Well, first thoughts are not always correct..........and we found out that they tore the building down and plan on rebuilding in June. It will be a 3-4 year project........slow but sure.
For lunch, we took a short break and enjoyed chow mein, tortillas, chili and lemonade. Kemmel would have LOVED the chili........sorry, I ate your portion!
We had a variety of patients. One young girl had a ganglion cyst on her wrist. Several with general aches and arthritis. One girl came home from school with a 103.2 fever. One mother brought in an ultrasound from her daughter and will follow-up with Lisa on Thursday.
This is Aura and Micaela with their last patient of the day.
