Child Of The Month
By Nicole Sergent, Clinic Director
Maria de Lourdes (Loulou) H.P.
Loulou is an 11- months old child from Chapala. She was born premature (8 months) with lungs and heart problems. The problems with her heart were resolved after a few months. She continues to have problems with her lungs and was diagnosed with asthma in September. She also has allergies to milk and needs a special type of milk in her diet.
She is very prone to bronchitis, cold, pneumonia and other lung issues. Her mother came to Ninos Incapacitados when Loulou was one month old. We have been helping with transport to and from Hospital Civil in Guadalajara and also with medication and special milk.
Since February 2015 we have reimbursed the family over 31,000.00 pesos. The doctors told the family that when her lungs get stronger it is possible that she will be asthma free. We certainly hope so for her and her family.
As Clinic Director for Ninos Incapacitados, I thank you once again for this opportunity to present Loulou. We have monthly meetings at the Real de Chapala in Ajijic on the second Thursday of the month at 10:00 am, please join us and learn more about our organization. We have three clinics: Jocotepec, Ajijic and Chapala. Should you want to visit, do not hesitate to contact Barb Corol for Jocotepec (766-5452) or myself for Ajijic and Chapala (766-4375).
