Friday’s departure saw clear skies and favorable
winds for the most part. However, Craig’s airplane
had a fuel pump problem that could not be fixed in Santa
Barbara. Two planes stayed on the Cadeje side and were able
to report dense fog on the morning of the clinic. The Mulege
contingent was able to land in Cadeje by 9:45. The trip home
on Sunday was a mixed bag of cross winds, but generally smooth.
Dr. Lisa Babashoff, with Laura translating, and Myra Howard-Cochran
FNP, with Erin Sparks RN translating, saw over 30 patients
on the medical side. Things continue to run smoothly with
the new protocols in place. Dr. Gayou (sp) has put together
new charting forms which will make further visits more efficient.
Erin Sparks did triage and kept a nice even flow of patients
coming while Chris Huntsman did vital signs and lab duties.
We saw many new patients at our clinic this month, along
with some of our regulars. Erin also provided the clinic
with posters for the patients to read while waiting to be
seen. Marilynn Enns and Bobbi Bliss had the pharmacy running
The dental clinic was staffed with only two dentist this
trip, Dr. Stu Macpherson and Roni did all the fillings and
one cleaning for the military comandante, while Dr. Grube
and Larry Cochran did all the extractions. The dental clinic,
due to the fog, had been working for about an hour before
the Mulege contingent arrived and was able to finish ahead
of the medical side for the first time this year. Doug Kramer
quickly learned sterilization
and Don did his usual great job with triage.
A special thanks to the pilots that transfer
fuel to other planes while the clinics is in progress. Just
another example of great team work and is greatly appreciated.
