Big huge day for me, and it is only 1p. Today I dispensed my first herbal remedies! For this to happen means that one of the doctors had a patient, the patient had a condition that could be treated by herbal remedies, the doctor RECOGNIZED that it could be treated with an herbal remedy that I told them about and then the doctor prescribed an herbal remedy! Excitement. The doctor was Dr. Avila. He is very nice. He came into my room and asked about sábila and skin conditions. He said he had a patient with skin ulcers and could I help? of course of course! So I quickly ran to the graden, plucked a huge stalk of aloe and made a quick treatment. I bumbled through spanish as I told Daniella how it should be taken. I was sooo nervous!But everything went fine. Dr. Avila came back in and asked about sabila in treating acne. Sure! I had a second order of aloe and this time I threw in a little ajo (garlic) which is very good for acne. I am so excited!
Also, in other big news. Sarah and I move into family homesteads this Friday. One of goes with Doña Yeny in the purple house, one goes with Doña Mirta and Don Paulo in the pink house. That is really all I know about it right now, but again, I AM EXCITED.
I think I will go to Rancho de Pancho for a celebratory beer tonight. :)
