Our February calendar page. Carmeh looks so sophisticated with her arm on the sofa.
Last Tuesday we saw our Mazatlan chiropractor. Dr. Terry is retired ( from the Seattle area ) and lives here about 4 -5 months per year.
His table has about 20 different levels that adjust ever so slightly so that when he adjusts you, you don’t feel anything.
He lives just two blocks from the Playa Sur embarcadero so we use that one. We are now heading back to the Isla. That is a very large tuna boat in port ahead on the left.
Not sure what the issue was but the shrimp boat was being escorted back into port.
We are repainting our RV staircase and it seems that our choice of color was a tad bold. We, well actually Colin, has now completed the second coat. Just waiting for the paint to dry. The color has grown on us.
Our girls have very different personalities including how they eat. Caeli tends to almost lay down while eating. She doesn’t play much and will always sit or lay down on the beach each time we stop to chat with someone.
Whereas Carmeh always eats standing up. She also is always on the go, playing with her toys and would never even consider sitting on the beach. She is always active especially on the beach.
I had a photo of my newly sprouted kale and swiss chard pots but can’t find it. Anyway, they are now ready to eat.
The plan was to make smoothies most days, but I don’t have the time with all I am doing for Carmeh.
So I steamed them and added them to a meal. Very tasty. I have 2 other sets of pots on the go so when I use all of greens from these pots then I will have another set ready to go and then yet another set ready when those are done. For those who must know, we were having Caesear salad, salmon stuffed phyllo, the greens and a baked potato with way too much sour creme.
Carmeh has had a good couple of days. So far so good. A wonderful blog reader who has given me much great advice over the past few years, suggested I try and get the Metronidazole in a liquid form. I did that today. However despite the fact that it says it is 30% sugar it is the most horrid tasting medicine. I had just the tiniest taste and my mouth retained the bitter taste for several hours. Even wine would not change the taste 😯 Carmeh only needed 5ml which Colin gave her and he said that she fought him. He is the one who gives her water by syringe when she is dehydrated so it was natural for him to take on this task. It was a nice break for me to not have to struggle with her. I gave her a few extra small pieces of chicken as a reward. This morning I had broken the large pill in two and bribed her with a treat before and after each half. Still a struggle. But I am confident that this medication may make a big difference. We are still only giving her pinches of the antioxidant but in increasingly teeny amounts. I forgot to mention that about a week ago we also reintroduced the probiotic to her diet. We are being most careful to only introduce one thing at a time for about a week before adding anything new.
So tomorrow is chicken cooking day, anyone want to come help?
Sorry to tell you but I don’t have a sunset shot for you tonight 😕 Hope that you all have a good evening.
