Damn Doctors

We can?¢â??¬â??¢t seem to shake them. Sherrell returned from Guadalajara after a good scare. The doctor thought her soreness and swelling was a really bad sign, so they did some samples and found no cancer. Then before they cut her open for more tissue, she remembered falling very hard about 2 months ago. They took a closer look and thought maybe the problem was a hematoma. So they numbed her and took about 100cc?¢â??¬â??¢s of trapped blood, to everyone?¢â??¬â??¢s relief it was just a hematoma. But now she?¢â??¬â??¢s sore and we have to go back again in 10 days for another exam.

Also they took another look at Sherrell?¢â??¬â??¢s gall stone which shows up in the liver ultrasound and recommended getting it treated before it gets inflamed. So, it?¢â??¬â??¢s hard to tell what might go down in the next few weeks ahead. Hopefully we?¢â??¬â??¢ll get it all straightened out and Sherrell can stop seeing these characters.

We did get some work down on the boat. I scrubbed out our fuel tank and the bilge. Installed a new fuel hose. Cleaned the boat, again and again. It?¢â??¬â??¢s getting hotter and more humid.

Mexico?¢â??¬â??¢s already had the first stupid storm of the hurricane season but that?¢â??¬â??¢s yet another set of problems I don?¢â??¬â??¢t want to think about.

So we are going to try some surfing in a new spot with our friends before they head back to the US for a few weeks. There?¢â??¬â??¢s supposed to be a really nice summer wave at this place, Selistinos. We?¢â??¬â??¢re going to have a good time there!
