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 🙂
