Two planes left on Thursday for San Juanico/Cadeje On
Friday, one more left for Cadeje and five left for Mulege.
The weather was clear with favorable winds. As always, a big
thank you to our dedicated and resourceful pilots.
Saturday the coastal fog prevented the Mulege
planes from arriving until after 10 a.m. Drs. Jim Mitchell
and John Vallee, of the San Juanico group, were already seeing
. Ehrlinda and Dale Dixon had the waiting patients organized,
with charts in hand. Dr John Vallee's special patient, Miguelito,
age ten, of San Juanico, who has cystic fibrosis, seems to
be doing better for now. Dr Vallee always make a house call
when staying on the San Juanico side.
DENTAL CLINIC NOTES
With talent to spare, the dental clinic
saw 32 patients, most of them children who had come to see
pediatric specialists, Drs. Yvonne Roshan and Steve Mascagno.
Their skills were greatly appreciated by the families of
the area. We sincerely hope to have a return visit. Australia
represented by Dr Dick Milner and his wife Liz, who did the
majority of the extractions. They were visiting the Mulege
and asked to come with us to help in Cadeje…always
appreciated. Thanks to Dana Longo who did triage and Peter
Lewis who did the
