A Quiet Week In The Jungle

22 Apr

While I was off visiting the grands last week (USA Here I Come), all was quiet on the home front in Bacalar, NOT!


Wrist broken in multiple places.

My sweet mother in law was tripped by her kitty and went down hard on her right wrist. Surgery, pins and a cast oh my.


Jubal the culprit


Alice needed an artistic cast.

And if that wasn’t enough, the dog with nine lives is down by one more! (The Adventures Of Frida The Mexican Street Dog)



I wasn’t here of course, but story has it that a large swelling appeared under her chin and obstructed her breathing. No time for photos. Poor Lisa having to deal with non-English speaking doctors and veterinarians. She is a trooper.

Frida has visited two vets and we’re still not sure what the problem is. She’s on anti -inflams and has a follow-up on Monday, fingers crossed. We’re ready for a quiet week but then again you can’t pick and choose your adventures and that’s the life we’ve chosen.

    Oh dear – Alice, I’m so sorry! I’m sending you love and healing wishes through Alex’s blog. I hope you mend soon and love to you three (and doggies)

      Thanks L. We’re hanging in there and Alice is feeling better slowly.

      Thanks Karen. We’re off to Chiapas for a few days and then will be in Austin. Hopefully will see you.

    So sorry to hear about the broken wrist, although that is quite pretty cast. Blessings to all.

      Nothing plain about Alice. She loves all things bling.
