Two years ago after returning to Mexico from our transatlantic cruise, David had pneumonia in both lungs. We called our doctor and he arrived at our house within 15 minutes. He spent thirty minutes with David and then went to the pharmacy to get him three shots and some pills. He was treated with steroids. antibiotics etc.

He came back to our house and spent another thirty minutes with him for treatment and returned the next morning at 10:00 A.M. sharp with an additional steroid injection and to recheck Davidīs progress.There was a thunder storm so he stayed an additional 45 minutes and drank some tea and ate cookies with us.

The entire bill when translated from pesos into dollars was about $88.(Including all injections and oral meds)

Now that is dedication.Itīs just some food for thought!
