Hard to believe that a week ago, we were boarding the plane to get here. We've definitely kept busy!
The medical team hit the ground running - seeing a lot of patients the first day as they were trying to set up.
Dr. Bob reported on several cases. One example was a 25 year old woman who was 20 weeks pregnant and came in with several issues. She was mildly hypoglycemic, so they gave her IV fluids with sugar, 1 gram of Rocephin to treat pneumonia and she perked up. They were able to discharge her with high dose Amoxicillin and an appointment to see her in 2 days, since the team will be back by then and can see how she's doing.
One of the team also reported how great it was to be able to prescribe something and know that if the patient needed followup treatments or prescription refills, they could get those at the clinic since it is open year-round, 5 days a week.
All of the team is heading to the village, and there's no internet service. The healing arts team will come back to Nairobi on Monday night.
