The lab report came back yesterday afternoon and the doctor and I had a little chat about the results. Seems that the infection is gone, which is a very good thing indeed, my other results are in line with expected readings. My blood pressure has returned to its normal 119/67 and my cholesterol is getting better now 155 with the good cholesterol higher than the bad. My blood sugar reading is 103 which is very good. The white blood cell count has returned to normal and there is no sign of infection. I am much relieved after getting this report. Being ill is a bitch it puts your life on hold until you get back to good health and preoccupies your mind day and night till it is over.

Now if only I can stay healthy and fit. I walk almost every day for forty-five minutes and I plan to add to that as time goes on. I am going to stay on my vegetarian diet with an occasional bit of flesh such as eggs to add some fat to my diet. I am trying to keep the sweet foods at a minimum we don’t need the added calories or sugar.

My next door neighbors left for Canada this morning I went with them to the local cantina/restaurant for breakfast other neighbors went also and we had a nice farewell. These folks are so nice I am lucky to have such nice neighbors. After saying our good-byes they were off to British Columbia and I was off to town to get cash out of the ATM, do a little grocery shopping and check in with the “Old Gringos” at our favorite restaurant Chumpos in San Felipe.

Today the weather has been very nice, the wind is gone and so is the blowing dust and sand……. YAY đŸ™‚

Christmas Eve 2011

Here I am on christmas eve 2011, I have been camped here in San Felipe at the Kiki RV park for a month. It doesn’t seem that long I guess I am having fun. My fellow campers are mostly Canadians who spend most of the winter down here at this park year after year. There are a few Americans who are camped here one comes every year and has his spot all decked out with a full kitchen under his ramada. Most of the Canadian‘s are more conservatively kitted out. Other  Americans here are in such big rigs they are only accommodated by taking up several spaces along the fence effectively blocking several sites.

I have decided to buy into a camp here and build my own permanent winter camp/home near the beach. I feel a little anxious about doing so because of the risk. I think spending my winters here and summers in the mountains is the way to go at this time. The place I bought into is called Pete’s Camp and it has been functioning for decades. The lot is bare bones except for a septic tank and electric pedestal and a couple of thousand little thorny plants that have to be removed. How all this will work out is going to be interesting to say the least.

So, on to another adventure and more learning …..

Oh yes, the locals are blasting fireworks tonight something I have come to expect here in Mexico just one of those traditions that makes Mexico fascinating.
