I will take an IV of Saline, por favor!

Many of you know that I have a terrible onion allergy.  I am also sickeningly (hehe get it) sensitive to far tooooooooo many things to make life simple.  Darn it!

Early this morning, I got to check out how the Mexican hospital system works.  I was feeling terribly ill with either a horrible reaction to a bit of onion juice that was on my avacado that I had eaten, or Moctezumas revenge. When we got to the hospital, I was ushered straight in.  I was immediately put thru the vital signs, I was taken over to a bed and had an IV inserted in less than an hour.  I was given a shot of cortisone, given a shot of anithistimine and a shot for nausea. I was constantly monitored by a nurse and the doctor checked on me frequently. All my blood work was done and back in a very short time and I was released about 2 hours after being put in. I came home, slept like a baby and feel pretty good today, although I am on strict orders to rest and drink plenty of fluids. Diagnosis? Toxic reaction with a stomach infection. Double whammy!!! The bill??  $140.00 US dollars, give or take. Wow!  Except for the language difference,  I was not at all unhappy with the care that I got here.

My travel partner, Lupita, is threatening to call and change my plane tickets if I do not get better, so I have to go lay down and read or write in my journal, or maybe nap..



I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
