Worm Infected Foot

Last week at the mission in Bocachica a man came with an infected foot. Conny, our mission nurse, began to clean the wound and found it was full of worms! The first day she got 8 worms out. A couple of weeks before the same thing had happend to our mission dog, Pibe, and the Vet had given us some cream to help draw the worms out and to help the healing process. We still had some cream left from the dog so Conny packed the wound full of it and sent him home. The next day he returned for more wound care and Conny got out 15 more worms. Now the wound is healing and the man is doing much better! (And so is Pibe!) :)
