Just a small set back

Thursday, September 12, 2013

My FIL had a small set back yesterday. He was doing fine but then all of a sudden got nauseous and threw up his lunch. They gave him a shot and that settled down but his GP doctor called me and told me she would feel better if a Cardiologist visited him and did an EKG just to be sure. So we met the Cardiologist at the house and he examined my FIL and did the EKG and things seemed okay but he wanted to do some more studies as my 'FIL had a heat attack like 27 years ago. So he put him on a monitor that will record a bunch of things for 24 hours. Really amazing technology these days. We will meet the Cardiologist there again today to get results. Yep, still amazed that within several hours of my FIL's discomfort a Cardiologist appeared at the house to examine my FIL....yep house calls are the normal here. I for one would miss the outstanding medical care here in Mexico is we do move back to the states.

Beautiful day here in Ajijc. Great day for getting out and walking the dogs. Then I get facial then meet the doctor at FIL.

Hope you all are making good decisions and are doing just great.
Have a terrific day.

    That is might be from the pain pills, that happened to me after I got home from having a total knee replacement. The nurse backed away and did not come near me after I did that. You will not get that type of treatment here in the state like you are getting in Mexico.

    I hope your FIL's okay, Sallie...and I have a feeling he is, but how wonderful that Mexico's got house calls! I have a sense that this might be a stomach reaction to a painkiller, if he's on them (and my guess is that after all that back surgery, he may be). Keep us posted, and I hope the facial was relaxing!

    Wow! House calls-- unheard of here in the states! And by a specialist!
Hopefully the tests will not show any problems!

    Hope this is just a glitch and your FIL continues to recover nicely. I was just reading today an article comparing health care costs etc across nations. People in the US think they are getting top-notch care but when you see it in black & white you realize we are coming up short AND we are paying the most for what we get. Not sure why everyone is so against "Obamacare". Although its far from perfect its a place to start. Jealous when I hear that they still make housecalls in Mexico!
