Oh honey I hope you get answers. Why did you stop seeing Dr. Guzman? Was he just farther away when you moved? He seems like he is a good doctor and I'm glad you're going back to him. Big hugs my friend and I hope you are getting some answers.

    Yes, it is a longer drive to see Dr. Guzman now that I live in the country. I will see him tomorrow and let everyone know what he says to me.

You get the Blue Ribbon for a stream-of-consciousness here. I hear the Hemingway influence and Mark Twain for whimsy. I once took the train to Mazatlan from Mexicali. We were college students and drank the train dry for beer. In Mazatlan, I had a few bowel challenges myself. Do they still brew Pacifico beer there? What about El Shrimp Bucket? It was Carlos Anderson's then. Draft beer was only a peso but it gave you the Montezuma's Revenge. I suppose you Habla down there. I only had C minus high school Spanish in the present tense only, but I got by with it It certainly impressed my fraternity brothers who could not speak Spanish at all. A buddy of mine fell off the train on the way back and was lost for a week. A Mexican medico stitched his head up with metal staples. See how well you've influenced me?

    Yes, Pacifico beer is still made here but it is much more expensive. I don't speak much Spanish even though I've been here since 2006. Most of the people here speak English since this is a tourist city and they rely on us for most of their jobs.

reply by Carl DeVere on 05-Jan-2020
    Thank you for the update. I enjoyed my visit there very much and even my basic high school Spanish was easily understood. I believe that Mazatlan is just below the Tropic of Capricorn.

reply by the author on 05-Jan-2020
    Yes, it is very close to the Tropic of Capricorn.

    I just wrote, "Mexican Train Redemption" inspired by your residence and memories of old Mayhico. Hope you like it.

Your post is remarkably well written, especially for a ramble. You must have some very good basic grammar, because nothing erroneous jumped out at me. I liked your introduction just as much as your actual post.
I am very sorry about your health condition. If you want my sympathy and compassion, you have it. I don't think you mentioned the name of your health condition, but maybe if your doctors had figured it out, you would have mentioned it.
I have numerous health problems myself, and my Mom is in even worse condition, but this isn't about me, so I won't go into it here. I'm trying to make the best of it, but I do understand that getting older and suffering from poor health can be very discouraging.
You mentioned that you're "old." I don't know what you consider old, but I will be turning 62 soon, and I don't consider myself young. As I said, I try to make the best of it.
That pozole looks delicious!
I think it's very funny, what you said about CNN Online.
I'm glad you had a good birthday. It sounded very nice. Happy Birthday!
I do wish you the best, for your doctor visit on Monday. And I wish you God's blessings, for I do believe in Him.
I hope it went well with your ear re-piercing, too.
Thank you for sharing your situation, ideas and feelings.

    I think I have pretty good grammar but a terrible typist. I hate my keyboard because the keys are too far apart and I am constantly hitting the wrong key. I am looking forward to seeing Dr. Guzman on Monday and have my fingers crossed for good news.

reply by Mary Kay Bonfante on 04-Jan-2020
    I get it. You might have typos -- but I didn't see any this time :-)
    I hope you get good news, too!

    Veronica and Agustin are my guardian angels and best friends. I love them dearly. We went grocery shopping today and spent most of the time just laughing. They both have a terrific sense of humor and we always have a great time.

It's rough getting older. I think I will stop doing that and try something else. So sorry your body is not doing what it's suppose to do. Of course, my hair stopped growing too, but I have no problem absorbing all fats available.

Even though you are beset with health problems, you still seem to manage to keep a bright outlook and enjoy life as much as possible. I hope all goes well with the doctor.

    You're welcome. By-the-way, I love your picture of Groot.

reply by the author on 03-Jan-2020
    Thanks, I have two large Groot statues in my apartment. I LOVE Groot, he is my favorite Guardian of the Galaxy character. When I get rich I want to buy a stuffed pillow Groot and put it on my bed

reply by w.j.debi on 03-Jan-2020
    How fun! I hope you get rich so you get that pillow.

I am wondering if you have researched beef bone broth? I think you might find benefit with this proven, ancient remedy. I wish you all the very best, judester

Hi Sasha,

Some days it feels like these sort of things are never-ending. As I've gotten older, more and more things become more painful all the time. lol I blame the sport (rugby) more than anything. I also can't eat like I used to - but I still try!!

Hope all goes well with the doctor and not just more bloody tests.

'inability to properly process the nutrition of the food I eat. - you open quote marks here but don't close them.

but my body in unable to extract - is unable.

pineapple turn overs. - turnovers I think can be a single word.

I then fall sleep faster - asleep.

All the best
G
