Busting Clinic and Patient Follow Up

Kemmel and Lisa picked me up this morning and we made our way to Lemoa.  When we pulled into the clinic, Kemmel said, "Looks like you guys are going to have a party today!"  The porch was full of patients and it is always a welcoming site.

I am not sure how many procedures that Lisa had but we had a combination of 34 or 36 patients.

We have one patient that has been having a hard time finding comfortable shoes because she has horrible rheumatoid arthritis.  Her fingers and toes have been greatly affected and she is in a lot of pain.  Cesar was able to find these shoes for her and she loves them! They are very soft and do not cause more pressure on her toes.

This young lady, Tomasa, has been one of our patients for several years.  She first came to see us when she developed some abdominal pain.  At this time, Katy F. was down here visiting.  She returned a few weeks later with an ultrasound that showed a large mass.  It had grown so much that when she laid down, she had difficulty breathing.

She went with us to Montellano and had surgery.  Our Gaspar was able to watch this surgery as they removed a 12 pound tumor. Jean D. spent a lot of time with Tomasa in the clinic and we prayed with her a few times. 

Today, Tomasa told us that she is getting married in two weeks and she is so happy! Jean, she remembers you and wanted me to tell you, "Hello!"

Tomorrow is a huge celebration in Quiche so we will not have clinic tomorrow.  I have become "addicted" to The Following, so I hope to be able to watch several episodes tonight.
