Que pena!

Amaia’s got a kidney infection. Last night she woke up about every two hours (when the painkillers wore off) with massive pain. As you can imagine, we didn’t get a lot of sleep. At six this morning we decided to phone an ambulance, assuming that it would take about 15 minutes. After an hour and a half we gave up and got a taxi to the hospital where she got some antibiotics and she’s now feeling better.

This left me wondering – if we had been living in a country where you can’t get a taxi to the hospital and get a prescription for antibiotics – would she be dying now?
