We had clinic in Los Ploscentos on Monday and saw a total of 133 patients. I was part of the Pharmacy team this day with Taylor and Rebecca.

The pharmacy

The patient’s would bring their paper to us after the doctor had written the medications to give and we would fill the orders.  Then I would take the prescribed medication and explain how to take it with the help of a translator.  We had a wide variety of medications such as: antibiotics, anti-parasite, anti-inflammatories, pyretic, anti-diabetics, vitamins, prenatals, diuretics ect.

We meet the coolest little fellow at Los Ploscentos! His name was Jair and he is 3 years old.  Jair has a chromosomal abnormality.  He has a brother that is 10 years old now that has the same abnormality as Jair.

After the clinic we headed back to the camp where most of us took a much needed and deserved nap.  We woke up to go and play “football” again before dinner! We played USA and Nelson (one of the translators), vs. Honduras.  Believe it or not team USA won 2-1.  We would have never won without Nelson on our team though!!

Dinner was delicious they made us fajitas!


Hey Everyone!! My name is Alyssa Pounders and I am a 4th level nursing student at the University of North Alabama. I am currently set to graduate December of 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Whenever I am not busy studying I love to go out for a run or hit the Tennessee River on jet-ski's. Basically other than that, I am busy living the fun filled life of a 22 year old college girl. I earn my money by waitressing and working at a local hospital. This August I plan to take an educational adventure to Honduras and 7 of my fellow nursing students are coming with me. We have the guidance of Mrs. Charlotte Cramer our nursing instructor who will be coming along with us. Follow and keep up with my blog and I'll fill you in on all of our exciting adventures in Honduras!
