12/27/12 - About two months later - we have bananas growing again and they should be ready in about two weeks... We are enjoying the sweetest pineapple we have ever tasted... When they cut the top of the pineapple, they plant it in the ground and about a year later you can begin harvesting pineapples off the plant. Not only do they taste good - but the plant is beautiful...
If you get sick and need to be seen by a doctor, you have to go to the hospital first and apply for a medical number. After you get the medical number you can make an appointment to see the doctor or wait at the emergency room – average wait time is 3 hours. But if you call an ambulance they get you right in – usually. So most people call the ambulance. After you have seen the doctor, and it is decided that you need a prescription, that is another 2 -3 hour wait. Besides the LBJ Hospital, there are two clinics on the island, but the only pharmacy is at the hospital. So it is best to not get sick, unless you want to be at the hospital all day.
