So Far, So Good.

Amy has been back from the hospital since Monday and so far things have been good.  She has felt relatively good considering what she went through and today we took a day trip to Julian - a mountain town east of San Diego.  It was fun and went went through the small town of Ramona which is an older, rural town with lots of horses, critters and beautiful spaces. 

I cherish every one of these days and just hope they continue.  We are staying a few blocks from the ocean with my friend in San Diego for now and are blessed to have the best organic vegetarian food cooperative right by us and it's been there since the 70's.  Besides the wonderful organic, mostly local produce, they also have a deli upstairs where they serve hot organic meals at incredibly low prices.  Amy is on an alternative cancer diet (she goes to the Hoxsey clinic in Mexico every few months and started it 2 months ago) and the diet is very healthy and a bit restrictive but it's a piece of cake to find what we want there.  So, on days when she can't cook and I am busy, I pick something up or we go there for a treat and eat at their tables. 

So, for now, I'm glad there is nothing negative to report!  We are house sitting for the weekend the home which has our two dogs (the Boxer Sherman and the Pug CJ) so we are all together for a couple days!  Sherman and CJ seemed thrilled to see us.  It is so hard being away from them but hopefully soon we'll be getting a place of our own.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

And, thanks for all the nice comments.  Love them all!


  1. Wonderful news to hear! How great to have the co-op so close by-next best thing to growing it yourself. Hope you continue to have a peaceful relaxing weekend!

  2. :) Love the good news. Enjoy the weekend!!!

  3. How wonderful for Amy and you to get out and enjoy something other than a hospital or just being in bed. I'm glad you had such a wonderful day. And to be with your pets for a few days is great for all concerned.

  4. I'm glad to hear the good news. Enjoy every moment of your time together. The love and the pets are good medicine.

  5. I don't remember how I stumbled across your blog, but I've been captured by your story... and am praying for you and Amy, and health and strength for you both.

  6. I too, am not sure how I found you, but I am sending you mental strength and positive wishes. I faced cancer almost 9 years ago. It changed my life. It was the hardest most mind distorting thing I've faced. I did find humility, strength and and eye opening awareness out of it and when its the hardest, remember your not alone! I will be thinking of you and please believe in your own strength, you can do this and I'll keep checking in. I can help you with the worry!


Your comments are much appreciated and enjoyed!
