Today was our 4th and last mobile medical clinic. We drove to Katondo and saw lots of patients. Forgot to ask for the total. Pete was able to go with us. He was our official photographer and even took a few blood pressures in a rush. We have become pretty good at taking 2 or 3 at the same time. Seemed like everyone was coughing and had lots of fevers. This was probably due to the fact that it is very windy & dusty in Katondo. The nurses were giving a lot of antibiotic injections. Had some positive malaria tests on very sick children.
Found one little boy wrapped up in a piece of cloth and sleeping in a corner. Not sure of the diagnosis but he received an injection. It is hard to keep up with all the facts with so much going on.
Getting to know some of the clinical officers, nurses and lab techs - they are a dedicated, talented group of young people. They work full time, have families and still come help run the clinics.
