New Year's first clinic

The first clinic of 2010 was a huge success. The entire week before this clinic saw heavy morning fog not burning off before 10:00. But Saturday morning we awoke to clear skies for as far as the eye could see. Somebody was looking down on our little group of angles from Arizona. Eight aircraft brought many familiar faces as well and many new ones from Arizona to Lopez Mateos. El Movil saw service as our diabetic facility where 12 patients were seen and put back on track. It also served as the platform for a few ladies ultrasound and a lab with it's microscope intact. Add to those the Sams treated 30 general medicine patients and 20 children. 8 folks were helped with prosthetic limbs and chiropractic department saw 60 folks. OBgyn treated 20 ladies and our dental staff took care of 22 while 11 folks walked away with cleaner smiles. If my brain can still add, that makes 183 patients seen at the January 9th fly in of the Flying Samaritans clinic in Puerto Adolfo Lopez Mateos. We were all treated to a whale or two out in the water as well as a family or dolphins. Kevin James came and did a great job of getting all of our dental equipment up to par so it was all a great clinic. See all of you at the fiesta in Constitucion next month.
