A Few Pics
This young boy came in and could hardly swallow. Under his chin was very swollen. We put him on IV antibiotics and sent him home the next day doing much better.
After delivering twins, this lady was carried into the clinic. The one baby was born dead, and the other was doing fine. We ended up sending her to T-Goave for further testing and treatment as it seemed she might have still had some deeper issues that we weren't able to treat.
Yesterday a man came into the clinic with a rag tied around his leg, just under his knee. Upon first glance it didn't look too serious, but when he took of the rag, there was a huge gash about 4 inches long and an inch or more deep. Rhoda and I worked for probably 1 1/2 - 2 hours picking out tiny rocks and dirt. Finally we decided it was clean enough to stitch back shut.
