Look who I saw today

Alfie aka Baron, one of my Mexican rescues is a lucky guy that gets to live on a beautiful acreage in the country. My heart felt good to see him running around, happy, safe and loved.

It's a boy!

Haha gotcha! No I haven't had a baby. A few weeks ago I had an abdominal hysterectomy to remove a fibroid tumor the size of a grapefruit. That bad boy was 5 inches wide! I'm glad to be rid of it, but this isn't an easy recovery. I have a big incision and about 100 internal stitches to heal from. Ouch. But I'm happy to be alive. Soon I'll be ready for some new adventures. I can't wait...

Small blessings

The Rolling Stones were right - you can't always get what you want, you get what you need. Today I had my pre-op appointment for my upcoming surgery. The appointment didn't go very well. I found out my surgery has changed from a simple procedure to a more complicated one and a longer recovery. I was upset, so off to the mall I went for some retail therapy. And guess who I bumped into in the parking lot? Little Lola the rescue puppy I brought back on my last Mexico trip. What a nice surprise. She's grown so big now. What a cutie. She sure brought a smile to my face today. Thanks Lola! I didn't need retail therapy, I needed puppy therapy. :)

Happy New Year!

Here's an update for all of you who may be wondering why I'm not blogging right now from Mexico. It's January, usually by now I've already been badly sunburned twice and attacked by some sort of bugs lol 

I had a great New Years eve and now I'm relaxing at home. No I'm not in Mexico. I'm at home on Vancouver Island. I just heard on the news that we're expecting snow this weekend. Brrrr. I'm really missing the sunshine, missing the beach and missing my friends in Mexico. But alas this winter I'm staying home. My daughter is coming to visit next month with my grandsons and I'm having abdominal surgery in March. The doctor said I'll be out of commission and recovering for 4 weeks. Oh joy of joys. But that's life. Stuff comes up and you have to deal with it. Surgery is on March 14th. Send me some good vibes and say a little prayer for me. I'm a big chicken. Thanks.

Cheers to good health, happiness and lots of fun adventures in the new year!
