September 20, 2012 here in La Virgen de Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. It was around 90 degrees today outside and very sunny. I made it to my doctor’s appointment with time to spare, for my physical thereapy. Thanks to a good friend of mine I was able to give my doctor a note about the certain types of pain that I am having and what is causing it. I also told him that the last exercises that he gave me hurt too much, so he told me not to do any more for now. I just get a little down at times because of back, when I was growing up I was in gymnastics, dance, judo and marching band. I was always very active, even had an inground swimming pool. Now I am luck if I can walk 2 kilometer, I used to do a 10k road march when I was in the military in full gear. But I do believe that I am going through this for a reason, what that reason is I have no idea. But at least it was a beautiful day today and I found out I lost about 6 pounds! That made me feel pretty good. When I went to the States this summer I put on 9 pounds in only 5 weeks! I eat so much healthier here, and it is easy and inexpensive to do so. I am just happy to be here with a wonderful husband, I don’t know what I would do without him. I can no longer stand long enough to wash the dishes so he does them for me. He takes such good care of me, I feel very lucky to have him. I love you baby.
