Christmas is near

I'm always extremely impressed when folks take three days out of
the Christmas season to go to the great lengths that our Flying Samaritans
do in order to help people they have never met. I guess you would have to say that they truly understand the reason for the season. Helping those who would not otherwise have. Thank you so much doesn't seem to be the right words but it's all I have at the moment. This clinic saw first time providers as well as some who haven't come in a very long time. We even had some first time local translators. Life is simply full of firsts, which makes it so much fun. As a result of the 6 planes landing in Lopez the Flying Samaritan's clinic saw 85 chiropractic patients and 10 dental cleanings.
General medicine helped 26 folks while OB-gyn saw 5 and pediatric patients accounted for 5 who were seen. We also had a plastic surgeon who helped 5 folks out. I guess that brings the total of patients seen at December clinic to 147 which is just wonderful. Thank you all and Merry Christmas to all.
