This morning, Sandra met me at Lisa and Kemmels and we headed out to Chutzurob. We eventually picked up Maria, Maury, Cesar and made it to clinic. The pews were full when we arrived and that is a wonderful site to see!
We had several new patients and that is encouraging. It is nice to have content patients who encourage their family and friends to come and see us.
In October, we had a young lady and when I examined her, I found a large mass. I asked her to get an ultrasound and return but she never did. When I have asked about her, I have been told that the ultrasound was normal and there was nothing wrong.
Today as we were driving to clinic, her mother was walking to clinic so she rode with us the remainder of the way. I asked about her daughter and she told me that her daughter had a 12 pound cyst removed in November by the surgeon in Chichicastenango! She is so thankful, as we are, that her daughter is much better!
We have been following a lady, Marta, during her pregnancy...........................and today we met Angela! She was warm and content.......
Lisa and Kemmel will return today with the MET Students. They will be with us for about five weeks. Half will be with us, while the other half remain in Montellano. In a couple of weeks, they will change places to experience both cultures.
They will live with different families, travel with us to clinics, help see patients and learn about life here in Guatemala. They have many adventures ahead of them!
