No June Gloom Here

June 12th saw crystal clear skies, 60 to 70 degree temps and 10 to 20 knots of pacific breeze as those five birds of humanity arrived to Lopez Mateos. Landing early (9:00 am) gave plenty of time before wheels up to help folks in need. Additionally we saw 5 Mexican providers come to attend patients as well. I am so impressed by the day's outcome. While El Movil was the platform for the diabetic clinic attending to 12 of those enrolled in the program it also served our Mexican OBgyn doctor with its ultrasound machine. So OBgyn was able to attend to 20 ladies (including 3 ultrasounds) while our three providers attending to General Medicine helped 34 patients. Paediatric treated 21 children and our chiropractor made 102 adjustments. Moving away from those specialities we had 20 patients seen by our Mexican Optometry provider. Moving along to dental there were 25 repairs/extractions and 14 brighter smiles after teeth cleanings. Three children who arrived via ambulance from La Paz were helped and I have no way of knowing how many prescriptions were filled but it was plenty. I suppose mathematics would total our patients helped today at 251 folks. WAY TO GO SAMS!!!
That's our story and we're sticking to it.
