Here is our trip to Rio Bravo:
Our plane left at 6:25 a.m. on Friday the 24th. We had to
change planes in Houston, and it was on to Harlingen. I had never
been on a plane before, and it was an experience. We arrived at
Harlingen airport on time at 10:20 a.m., and we were suppose to meet
Marcos in the lobby. He wasn't there. IMPORTANT: TAKE A CELL PHONE
OR BUY A CALLING CARD BEFORE YOU LEAVE!!! Maybe we are the
only people without a cell phone in all of America, but if there are
any others this is very important. We could not call Marcos because
his cell was long distance, the pay phones do NOT let you put extra
change in for long distance anymore, the AIRPORT WAS TOTALLY OUT OF
CALLING CARDS!!! We had no way of finding out where Marcos
was. Finally, we borrowed a cell phone from a cab driver who took
pity on us and left a message. Another hour passed, nothing,
the same cab driver came back over to us and asked if we wanted to
use the cell phone again. We did, Marcos answered this time,
apparently another couple's plane had been delayed, which is
understandable, but without a phone, we didn't know. So 3
hours later Marcos picked us up.
That was our only challenge during our trip. Once Marcos arrived, he
was very, very nice. He asked if I had eaten anything and that I
might have surgery that night instead. (Friday) I said no, and I
would love to get it done today. We drove to the hospital, and
Marcos helped us with the paper work and we were put in room # 1. We
got there at 3:00, and at around 5:00 they told us we would have
surgery that night.
A nurse Jorge(?) Came in and took blood and started my I.V. About
8:00p.m. he came back and wheeled me to the O.R. When we were being
wheeled into the o.r., I saw Dr. Perez, and just got a chance to say
hi. I got up on the table and Dr. Moreno, the anesthesiologist, had
me curl up on my side and put in the epidural, didn't hurt a bit.
Then he gave me some medicine that made me relax. Another nurse put
in the catheter, I knew she was doing it, but felt nothing at this
point. After that my husband was right by me in his scrubs. I was
semi awake, I remember saying to hubby, how long have we been doing
this? And he told me a little over an hour. We were on the second
tube. I remember asking the Doc's how did it look in there? And they
told me everything looked fine. After awhile I heard Dr. Perez say 5
on both sides. So that was what I wanted to hear. Then Hubby says
Dr. Levi sewed me up and they transferred me to my room.
I did sort of freak out that I could not feel my legs or move them
at all, I don't know why though because I had an epidural with my
tubal ligation, so I knew what to expect, maybe it was just because
I was spaced out.
I went to sleep and woke up in a lot less pain than I thought that I
would have. The only pain I really felt was getting up and down.
About 3:00 p.m. Marcos came in and we had a choice whether to stay
at the hospital or to go back over to Harlingen and get a hotel
close to the airport. Well we wanted to shop in Progresso, so Marcos
dropped us off in Progresso while he took another couple to the
We shopped and had a lot of fun. We just had to walk slower than
normal, there wasn't really any pain. After Progresso, we walked
across the border and met Marcos on the American side, so we could
avoid the traffic waiting to come across the border. Marcos took us
to our hotel, we stayed at Comfort Inn in Harlingen, we ordered
Pizza to the room for dinner.
The next day we took a cab to the airport and headed home.
We had a really neat experience, everyone was very nice and
accommodating to us. We didn't have a communication problem, we had
no need of the note cards at all.
My husband wanted me to mention the staff at the hospital went out
of their way, and when we first got there, they cooked him dinner
and he thought that was very sweet to go out of her way for him.
Dr Levi was very nice and helpful too.
We were very pleased with our decision. My hubby was kind of nervous
about the whole Mexico thing, but now he would recommend it to
anyone that was in our situation.
Thanks to everyone there they are first class!!!
