Cairo clinic: day 1

We were off to a late start as all our first days are, but once we got rolling we moved. We saw 368 patients from 10am until 5:30pm with a 45 minute lunch and devotional break. We had 7 medical students and 6 pharmacy students who came to work with us and to translate. We saw congenital heart disease, pyloric stenosis, and fetal distress, to name a few of the types of cases we saw. There were a lot of rickets and pneumonia cases as well. The team is holding up well and except for the traffic that literally takes up hours of time to just go few miles, all is well. Tomorrow is another day, another blessing, another opportunity to witness.

In all things give thanks,
