Clinic in Chichi

This morning we all met at the Church of Christ in Chichi and started clinic.  Tomas brought Jackson and Jonas, 2 of the MET students with him. Andrea and Maria met us there. We quickly set up clinic and started.

We had a great turn out of patients and I was pleased with the number that usually go to Lemoa that came to see us instead.  The first five patients usually are seen in Lemoa but that clinic is growing so fast that we are trying to have people go to the clinic that is closer to their home.

We finished with twenty-four medical patients and nine dental patients.

When it came time to clean up, Jackson and Jonas decided to try their arms at wrapping the electrical cords.  They knew that we had some fun with Nathan last week in Chajbal so they played along two.  All of the MET students have been real troupers these two weeks.  They have pitched in and worked hard. I hope they have enjoyed their time with us and have learned a few things.

Today we had a patient with a very dense cataract.  Four years ago she had surgery in her  left eye and now she has developed one in her right eye.  At this point we do not have a lot of time to waste but need to get her seen quickly. I called Jennifer, a physical therapist at ASELSI and she put me in contact with Sandra.  Sandra called me in about 30 minutes and gave me an appointment for this lady on the 7th of July at 11 am.  I am so excited for her!  I look forward to seeing her in a few weeks hearing about her improvement.

Tomorrow, we will have clinic in Mactzul I and on Saturday in Chuchipaca.
