My Wellness Retreat

We made it to Mexico and all is great.  Travel yesterday was smooth and we got to catch up with my wonderful college pal in San Diego, who graciously hosted us last night. 

Because this tune up treatment program is outpatient, we are staying at a hotel a few blocks from the hospital.  The hotel is lovely and we have a view of the pool with a fountain outside our balcony. The bellman brought us a fridge and microwave and, through the hospital, we have arranged for a personal chef, who will be delivering fresh, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, low glycemic meals made to order (!!!).  

I'm pretty sure this is the best healing trip ever.  In fact, last time we were calling it "cancer camp," but now that I'm in remission, we have decided that Mexico 2.0 shall henceforth be referred to as our "wellness retreat."

Day one was easy breezy.  We arrived at the hospital where they drew some blood for tests, to ensure everything looks good before they proceed.  I assume it does because they scheduled the surgery to insert the catheter/port into my main artery tomorrow morning at 6 am and I'll have hyperthermia after.  

Mostly we just lounged today while waiting for the test results. We went to a cute little organic cafe for breakfast and hung out at the hotel.  Dave gave me reiki and we went to the hotel gym to work out. We even ate lunch by the pool (it was about 65/70 degrees today; definitely an improvement from the chilly temps at home). 

So tomorrow the tune up officially begins.

Thanks for all your continued prayers, love and energy!
