Clinic in Xepol

Manuel and I set out for Xepol, hoping that it would be a dry day.  Our drive was good, even thought we hit a area with some mist, it did not last long.

Everyone is flying kites, getting ready for the November 2 celebration.

We had 12 patients and I was pleased with that number but two of them concerned me a lot.

The other day, I had pigs helping me with the clinic.  Today, I had sheep.

From time to time, they would give me the loudest "Bahhhhhhhhh," that they could come up with.

Outside the children were playing, with their kites.

They were determined.
And then caught some air

There was one lady that is about 26 weeks pregnant and she has not felt any improvement yet. I strongly encouraged her to come and see us Monday in clinic. I am even more concerned because her last baby in October.

Another lady has a neck mass that has been growing for nine months.  Since it did not cause her any pain, they did not see a need to visit a doctor.  I hope that this lady will go and have a biopsy.

So, that was my day.................................tomorrow, I will go to Antigua and get my passport.  It has a stamp that will last me until I fly back in December, which is not too far away!
