Medical Brigade Summary

The week has come to a close with our first two teams of the summer.  I realize it's not all about numbers, but it helps keep things in perspective when I look at my level of exhaustion - it's GOOD exhaustion, but tired none the less.  Here's the summation:

Ultrasounds: 75
Cardiology appointments:  60
Breast exams:  63
General Consults:  204

This has us having seen 402 people this week.  The team worked hard and I know the people of the community were blessed by having this amount of expertise in one area.  We also had a day of education where we taught classes on parasites, brushing your teeth, good hand washing, breast self-exams, and high blood pressure.
