Last Thursday March 12th we made our way back to Mexico so mother could get a tooth pulled. Remember back on Christmas day when she fell? Well, she broke her tooth in half and it had been bothering her.
With the main road out of the subdivision closed for a month, it took us 35 minutes to get to Mexico when normally it would only take us five minutes. Besides being an excellent dentist one of the reasons we go to him is that he has his own private parking and mother does not have to walk very far.
Having to run out to feed the parking meters is not fun. On a positive note Ciudad Acuna did away with said meters recently and I am very happy they did as I have been on the receiving end of parking citations in the past (two).
Her tooth extraction cost $45.00 US dollars and it included the exam, X-rays, antibiotics and the actual extraction. I have no idea what it would cost in the States as the last time I went to a dentist in the US was back when I lived in Houston and had dental insurance...a long time ago!
Usually I will pay in Mexican currency but as volatile as the exchange rates have been lately, I thought it best to pay in American dollars.
Would love to post some pictures but I am now using Internet Explorer the only browser that will allow me to go online and it is not compatible with Blogger. I also apologize for the large gaps but again it is caused by having to use IE :-(
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
No Spurs game tonight but I sure did enjoy watching Lebron get beat up by his former teammates :)
