Spent the morning at a local nursing home in San Ignacio and realized just how lucky the patients are to be there. They take such good care of them. They are bathed daily, fed 3 meals and snacks daily, have gorgeous grounds to sit in their wheelchairs and enjoy the scenery and have people who truly care about them. Several of them are near or over 100 years old….making it crazy to see a birthdate year of 08 and realizing it was 1908 and not 2008 as we commonly see in Pediatrics.
This afternoon we ate lunch in a bar/restaurant on Burns Ave in San Ignacio and enjoyed some good ole American food–nachos, fries, and burgers!! Weather is 80s and sunny…..somewhat different than Ohio I’m sure. We will be back in Clinic Wednesday so expect more stories.
