It was a lovely day for flying! All systems were go from Santa Barbara,
with four planes lifting off early Friday morning. Stu, Roni and Sky MacPherson
departed from San Diego at noon, did a “supply drop” at Guadalupe
Ranch, outside of Guerrero Negro, and arrived in Mulege by 5 p.m.
We all took off from Mulege bright and early Saturday morning. There was
some ground cover around Cadeje so we followed the river in and landed east to
west on the Cadeje “pista” (runway).
The medical clinic got off to a flying start, with patients
that had been registered by Herlinda. Once the discharge
planner was booted up by the computer whiz, all patients were
taken care of in a caring, efficient manner. The ladies
were happy to see nurse practitioner, Carol Gemberling, for their gyn exams. Thanks
to translator Lorane Bailon and all others who did such a fantastic job!
The dental clinic ran smoothly under the direction of Melodi
Stu MacPherson was assisted by his wife Roni. Dr. David Dart and Dr. J.C.
Ramirez did exceptional jobs, also. Erika Carter jumped right in with triage
for the dental area and Sky MacPherson was of great help sterilizing instruments. All
patients were seen and left happy, with smiles on their faces.
