Worst stuck ever in Baja


I had major surgery at hospital Fidepaz Monday.
Can't move
0:30 early Friday morning I need help.
Press the call button.
No response.
I try again.
And again.
By 1:15 I start to worry.
What if I develop a blood clot or so.
Contemplate calling 911 with my cell
Then I remember the last hospital bill - it should have a phone number.
Nope
Internet was mostly out all week.
I try anyway.
Get a very weak signal
Just enough to google the hospital's phone
First call drops right away
Then I reach a kind guy at the front desk
He isn't even surprised that I am trapped in his hospital.
Strange.
Help arrives at 1:40

Mexico is full of adventures!

Gotta agree - that is a pretty sucky stuck. Do you tunnel out or make a dash for the barbed wire fence? Good luck breaking free.

I have been stuck more than a few times, way north and south of the border. Most of them make interesting campfire stories, but high centered on a bed pan? That one doesn't make the lineup!

Here's hoping you have a speedy recovery!
