Last week we had to take Jewel to the doctor because of her asthma. Today was my turn.
We met a wonderful family doctor. He is the son of missionaries and works near the Baptist Hospital here in Asunción.. His father worked here with the lepers and the son has stayed on. His brother now works with Aids patients here in Paraguay.
Anyway, Dr. S, is an interesting guy. I enjoyed his time and attention as I have missed that in the US this last year. He took all the time needed and was very relaxed. I am trying to get some relief for my ever present back problems. He put me in contact with a Physical Therapist from Canada. I am excited to begin this route as I have never been in a place where therapy was a possibility, due to our remoteness, or in the US lack of insurance coverage, and travel.
The visit was about $22.00.
Apparently, Dr. S and his family actually DROVE from Paraguay to Canada in his youth!
CAN YOU IMAGINE?!?!?!
