Gracias a Dios para nuestros amigos Edhie y Sara.  Fuimos a Talara esta tarde para una cita con un doctor de endocrinólogo sobre el diabetes de Doug.  Fuimos a una clínica en Talara, y cuando llegamos, los pasillos de la clínica estaban llenas de gente esperando para ver a su médico y el ruido estaba grande.  Pero, con la ayuda de Edhie, marchamos sobre todo y tenemos una consulta con el doctor casi inmediatamente!  Los resultados de exámenes confirmar que Doug tienes diabetes.  Ahora Doug tiene pastillas para tomar y una dieta.  En verdad, la dieta no es muy diferente de lo que comemos.

Y, que raro, podemos usar nuestra seguros en esta clínica!  Solamente necesitamos pagar un porción para la consulta y 10% de las pastillas.  Al final, disfrutamos los beneficios de seguros!!

 

Thank goodness for our friends Edhie and Sara.  We went to Talara this afternoon for a doctor´s appointment.  The endocrinologist we consulted was for Doug’s diabetes.  We went to a clinic in Talara, and when we arrived, the hallways were crowded with people waiting to see a doctor.  The noise and disorganization was very loud!  But, with the help of Edhie, we managed our way through all the chaos and saw the doctor almost immediately.  (Edhie is an anethesiologist in the hospital and clinics in Talara, so his presence gave us some leverage.)  The results of tests confirmed that Doug does have diabetes.  He now has pills to take and a diet to follow.  In truth, the diet isn’t that different than what we already eat.  He’ll need to cut out butter….but there won’t be many other changes.

And, how curious!  We were finally able to use our insurance card to get our benefits.  We paid S/.35 ($26) to see the doctor and only S/.6 ($2.30) for the medication for the month.
