Cihuatlan Hospital

I've become the taxi driver for a few families in our community when someone in the family is sick. Yesterday they asked me to take them to the Cihuatlan Hospital to get some medicine that wasn't at Seguro Popular here in Melaque. Grandma was having a hard time breathing.

I'm not sure why they didn't call first. Just a Mexican thing, don't trust the system or just didn't have the number. Anyway, Cihuatlan didn't have it either. Seems Seguro Popular is often out of lots of medicine. Back we came and they are off to the local pharmacy to buy the medicine for grandma.
