God is In The Details

Posted by familyafair on February 14, 2008 at 1:13 PM

God reminded me yesterday that He is the details. Benjamin's health issues have been a great concern of mine in moving to Mexico. I am not very familiar with the healthcare community there and the thought of trying to bring a spanish speaking doctor up to date on Ben's issues overwhelms me. The latest health issue with Benjamin is his tonsils. They have been the size of large marbles for several weeks, blocking his airways at night, causing him to snore and even making him drool when he speaks sometimes.

 I took him to the dr. 4 weeks ago and was told that it was nothing...just allergies or some-such thing, and the tonsils would go down on their own. He said if they stayed swollen past a couple of weeks we would need to see an ENT dr. So, here we are, just weeks away from moving to Mexico for two years, plane tickets are bought, plans to visit family and friends one last time are on the callendar, and Ben's tonsils are still huge. And so I have been fretting about the possibility of a tonsilectomy, how that would affect Ben, and our plans and the stress of everything else we have to do.

Then yesterday I received this e-mail from Nathan detailing the experiences of an American couple living in Chapala Mexico (where we will soon be living).....

Another Good Mexican Medical Experience

About a month ago, I wrote about going to the Ajijic Clinic with an ear infection and how I was generally pleased with the care I received.

Unfortunately, the infection flared up again later in January. I tried another GP here in the Lake Chapala area, and also liked him. He had me take another round of a different kind of antibiotics.

But that didn't solve things either. So my tender pulsating ear forced me to face my dislike of traffic in Guadalajara and get myself to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist. There seem to be none in the Lake Chapala area.

I had enthusiastic recommendations for two different ENTs, and I chose simply on geography. There is a monthly bus excursion from Ajijic to Plaza Mexico, one of quite a few shopping malls in Guadalajara. My understanding is that the Walmart in the mall pays for the bus. The trips are arranged by the Chapala branch of the Red Cross, you buy your tickets in advance at the Lake Chapala Society, and your 50 pesos round trip benefits the Red Cross. Buses leave the lake area around 9 AM and get back around 4 PM, I think.

I chose the ENT whose office is a couple of blocks from Plaza Mexico, just beyond one of Guadalajara's excellent hospitals, the Del Carmen. Since I don't imagine I will ever drive in Guadalajara, that monthly bus would give me a convenient option to forcing my honey to drive me around. I'd heard that quite a few lakeside residents use the bus for medical appointments.

I called yesterday and was able to get an appointment with Dr. Andres Badial for today. Kelly drove me in, and he went with me to the appointment. Dr. Badial was very personable, took plenty of time, really listened, asked lots of questions, checked out my ears and fixed me up... suctioning out a lot of gunk from the ear removed the loud tinnitus that has impaired my hearing for these weeks! I am to go back next week for a follow-up. The cost of the office visit: 500 pesos, or about $45 US. His English was completely fluent. (His office phone in Guadalajara: 3813 4334.)

As Kelly and I walked back to the shopping mall, he commented that this level of care was an example of the high quality of medical work that we are beginning to get used to here in Mexico.


WOW! I needed to read that! Nathan said that he has the keyword "Guadalajara" on a list and that anytime an article or news containing that word is added to the internet, it automatically shows up in his in-box! This was the article that showed up yesterday. Coincidence? I think not. God is so good and He is all over the details concerning this move. He will supply ALL our needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus!!
