Today was another busy day at the clinic. Between the three providers on the team and the guatemalan doctor we saw around 130 patients today. Did a lot of stool samples and a few ultrasounds.
This week we are trying something new and sending a pickup truck to bring in patients from a village that is far away (but still part of San Antonio) called Barrios 1. We have a few emergency sponsored kids from that area and it is a part of town that has a great need. 99% of the stool samples were positive for parasites and many children are malnourished. We are just starting to form a relationship with the people, but I can already tell that they are eager for our help.
Since we are in rainy season it is always a bit of a guessing game about when it will pour. The team got a little wet walking up to the bus today, but they are real troopers! They worked an extra hour to finish seeing all the patients that came in the pickup truck.
