God loves them all!

This week has been full to overflowing at the clinic.   We’ve had quite a few challenging cases as well as babies born which often means some short nights!   On Monday this little fellow pictured below was brought in by his mom.  The mother claimed to have been pregnant with the child for 15

What a Weekend!!!!!

A happy patient This man was in a while back and returned last week.  He has what looks to me to be a broken collar bone.  Well, when he came in last week, he was smiling from ear to ear.  Before he had been in intense pain and no wonder since his break hadn´t been

Blessed are the flexible…

…for they shall never be bent out of shape! I often think of this when everything unexpected happens and nothing that WAS expected happens. 🙂 And then at the end of the day I look back and see what wonderful ‘gifts’ and blessings God dropped down in the midst of a very unexpected schedule. Like
