Hello Tom and Bette,

We should be there as well. We'll be in Mexico for the winter and then off to the Marquesas, etc around the end of Feb.

Bring your Scope & "Grey's"

Oncologist as Ophthalmologist:
A pair of siblings were playing (in the water) in the anchorage at Staniel Cay (Exuma, Bahamas), and the boy’s finger tips “flicked” his sister’s eye. She suffered extreme pain, and lost all vision (couldn’t even see light).
Her parents put out a radio-call for assistance, and an R.N. and a retired Oncologist responded. The Nurse has an anatomy text to refresh the Doctor’s memory, and a third party had an illuminating otoscope, which the Doc’ used in place an ophtalmoscope. His (inexpert) examination was indeterminate, and he advised the family to transport the patient to Nassau for proper medical attention.
Although it was now after sunset, and all the local pilots (there were 4) were only VFR rated, Solomon Robinson agreed to fly the girl to Nassau. Locals lined cars up alonside the runway, illuminating it with headlights.
The parents kept delaying their departure, hoping the girl would improve, and they could save the potential expense of the trip & treatment.
Fortunately, after several hours, the pain diminished, and her sight returned. She apparently enjoyed a complete recovery, without further medical intervention.

Anyway, it’s good to have a Nurse and an Opthamologist aboard.

Welcome Tom & Bette
