Dental setting up their area.
The La Palma people arrived first so we started out with some of them. This is Jeanie and Manuel is translating for her. It is nice to have Manuel with us since he speaks English, Spanish and K'iche'.
Jeanie found a young girl with a 5/6 heart murmur. At first she did not think the girl had any symptoms but as she talked with the mom, she found that the girl did have symptoms. We will follow up with her soon.
Another lady told us she was going to deliver soon. We could not get a good idea of how many weeks she is but we found a good heart rate, there was a lot of movement and the baby was in good position. We gave the mother instructions on what to do, so hopefully, all will be well. We were told that the closest pharmacy is 45 minutes away so we are in an area that does not have a lot of help.
After all patients were seen, we packed the truck and headed pack to Chichi. We each had a few extra pounds of sand on us and at least 3 pounds in our eyes................but it was a great day!!
