|Tape has shifted, cotton ball lost - but Dolly wants to keep the tape "Bandage".|
I asked my neighbour to drive me the 2 minute drive to the doctors as I was unable to walk in my state. I was perspiring heavily and shaking. At the doctors the receptionist did not look at my leg and had no idea it bleeding and had soaked through my trousers and 2 towels. She said that the doctor would see me between 2 patients. However patients were called and I wasn't seen to. She took me to a back room 15 minutes latter to get my leg alleviated when she saw all the blood and made sure I knew the fee for stitches was roughly 350$. I didn't care about money at this stage as I was worried about what was under the towels. I waited some more. By which time Dolly had been picked up by my mum and The Rambling Expat arrived. When he saw I had not been seen to and I was feeling light headed and frustrated he said we should go to the hospital.

|Not so bad.|
We are so lucky! I spent 8 hours in medical facilities yesterday and paid 0$. And no bill will come.
- 2 injections and a Development Assessment for Dolly. Bonus: nurse gave Dolly hugs, kisses and small gifts (stickers, rainbow pencil, growth chart) as rewards.
- I got 1 Xray, 7 stitches and 1 injection. Plus lots of kindness.
Would medical procedures like this cost you something in your country?
I'd be interested to know - don't forget to tell us what country you are from or live in.
