Life is Good

December 9, 2012

Life is good here in Mazatlán.  I am feeling better every day and have been getting out and about more and more.  We have been eating out, going for walks, and going to the movies. I’ve attended a couple of meetings, met friends for knitting, and gone grocery shopping on my own.  Life feels amazingly close to normal.

I do like a siesta, though. A bit of a break with my pack in the middle of the day gives me the energy I need to continue healing and improving.  Don’t laugh – I took a picture of naptime yesterday, above.

We go to Culiacan this week to begin chemotherapy, which I am sure will be another huge adventure.  First up, finding the place, finding our hotel, and then meeting the oncologist who will guide us through it all.  We’ve talked on the phone and emailed, and I like him already.

Friday night Paul and I enjoyed a fantastic Lila Downs concert in the Angela Peralta Theater.  What a fantastic concert, truly the highlight of my year.  And how funny today when we opened up the newspaper and what do we see but a picture of ourselves amongst the sold-out crowd.  (below)  If you ever have a chance to see her perform, we highly recommend it.


So that’s about all I can think of right now.  Hasta pronto!

Share and Enjoy !

    1. I’ve heard that Culiacan has a lot of interesting sites and architecture, so it WILL be another adventure. I hope it comfortable for you and so glad to hear you are bouncing back so quickly. Just DO NOT try to buy any drugs when in Culiacan, okay? jajaja. A giant squeeze across the Golfo de Cortez!

    1. Woo hoo!!!! You’re recovering!!!!

      Chemo will be an ordeal. Though I haven’t personally experienced it, a number of friends have. So just grit your teeth and persevere. I’m sure you will get through it with flying colors, even if it is tough.

      I along with all your readers are rooting for you.

    1. I hope you can form an image of all the good feelings that are being sent out to you from all your friends and family who love you, and bring it to mind whenever you need it.

      I’m also betting and hoping that chemo will be a breeze and that the most difficult part will be going without any wine for the duration!

    1. So glad to hear you are out and about and making front page news!!! As you know Colin travels often to Culiacan and I have been a few times and it is a great city. We have a detailed city map if you would like to borrow it.

      1. Thanks everyone, we are excited to hit the road and get STARTED! Action is what I need! I’ll post an update when we’re home…. and thanks Contessa, but we leave in an hour so no way to borrow your map. We don’t have a paper map but with the iPad and smartphone I think we are ok for now. See you soon!

    1. Nice to see a mellow picture of life back to normal, nap time anyway…glad you have everything under control, we will keep you in our daily mantras ….
