We took two vehicles so far then into one for the back roads. We had forgotten the bag with medicines so Dick turned around...
and got our 4 wheel drive stuck in some of the slickest mud I've seen. It stuck to everything, filled the tire treads...
Woody supervised, Dick and Bruce worked and I assumed my role of official photographer... hey it was that or push.
We got her turned around and got the meds...
then started hoofin' it.
Up a hill, down a hill, really up the next hill.
then in typical Guatemalan fashion through the cornfields that surround the home.
Gentle knock at the door, and Dick gets an awesome smile for a greeting. I wasn't close enough to get that first smile.
but I got a later smile. This young lady has icthyosis. If Dick had not found her it would have soon gotten severe enough to have effectively blinded her.
Greetings for all in the court yard, chairs found for everyone and drinks.
Here you can see the dry skin of icthyosis. Dick says this is markedly improved from when he first "got lost" and found her.
Dr, Bruce doing an exam. It was a joy working with this team this week and to see the compassion expressed throughout the week.
