Another Year, Another Birthday
What a year 2010 has turned out to be. We spent almost as much time in Houston as we did in San Miguel not out of choice but out of necessity. Way too much of that time was spent in hospitals and doctor's offices. So we are looking forward to 2011. We will head back to San Miguel a week from today and that is where we plan to stay except for short "vacations" back to the USA to see family. Of course we will have to fly in a time or two for medical check-ups but those trips should be very short.
My list of wishes for 2011 is short and simple....well maybe not simple. I want good health for both of us. If we have that then all the other things that I might put on a New Year's resolution list can happen.
Ned's cancer is in remission although the doctor wants him to take one more chemo treatment before we leave next week. Then it will take him three or four weeks to come out of chemo fatigue and brain fog but at least he will be recuperating in San Miguel where he wants to be. In February his hair will start growing back and by March, he will be the same handsome devil I married. Oh, I forgot to mention that we had another wedding anniversary this week.
The picture at the top is of Doug, Son #3, and Ned. Which reminds me, we had a great Christmas with the family. If you like looking at family snapshots, you can check out my family Christmas snaps here.
I'm going to wrap up this rambling blog entry and go treat myself to a birthday mani-pedi and then on to see the movie, The King's Speech. I think we are going to stay in and have lobster tails for dinner. Nice birthday!
To all my Readers, I wish you a healthy and happy 2011.
