Like I mentioned on my last post my favorite uncle (mom’s baby brother) came for a visit. I had warned him that I had a terrible cold but he said he was not worried because he always gets his annual flu shot. Well you guessed it…he caught my cold and was on his deathbed.
I felt bad and offered to share my medicine with him so as you might expect neither one of us got well since I did not finish the complete antibiotics treatment and he only took a couple and did him no good.
Been divorced so long had forgotten what it was like to have a sick man in the house. Let me tell you it was not a pretty picture. Why are men so silly? They act like they are the only ones in the world that have ever been ill. Since he was sure he was going to die, he decided it was best for him to die at his house, lol (me rolling me eyes) so he left yesterday.
After he left I decided to go back to Mexico to see the doctor. This time he gave me more potent pills and some herbal pills for my cough. The pills are called Cetoxil and come with 10 tablets. I have to take one every 12 hours for 7 days so I had to buy 2 bottles.
I really did not want to buy the herbal pills for my cough but my mother insisted saying they are better than the Nyquil I am taking…well at least the Nyquil knocks me out and allows me to sleep J
Pharmacy was having some kind of special so instead of $295.00 pesos I paid $245.00 pesos for the medication. Doctor was $35.00 pesos for a grand total of $280.00 pesos. The exchange rate was $12.95 yesterday so it came to $21.62 USD.
I certainly hope this takes care of it because I sure am tired of being sick. If the Chili Cook-Off was next week I don’t think I would be able to attend. Lucky for me I still have 31 days though October is promising to be a very busy month as my mother has several doctors’ appointments scheduled and I have a lot of things to do to get ready for my upcoming trip to Terlingua.
