Blog back online!

After going thru about 12 days of worrying, and anxiety, and 3 days in hospital, we have 2 assessments form 2 cardiologists that are good. I had atrial flutter. That caused the rapid heart rate, and the weakness, While serious, it can be controlled by meds, and weight loss. So I'm down 19 lbs since May 17. Elaine(otherwise now known as the real, "Food Nazi", has me on a strict veggie, fruit diet that has improved my blood & lab #s real nicely. 30% cholesterol improvement, and glucose & tryclycerides all have improved. And I'm being obedient patient 99% of the time.
 Had a huge coconut drink, and a veggie slice. But after eating so differently, I have to say that after eating slice I wished I hadn't. Losing the desire for all those rich foods I loved for 60 years. not easy but necessary.
So we went to San Miguel to get some produce from an Organic store/restaurant, called oddly, "Organica".Here is a pic from store.

They have lots of choices,in season, and even have seeds to grow your own. Plus spices, herbs, oils, and other seasonings.

I asked for asparagus, but they didn't have it. When I pronounced the word, i=n spanish I must have butchered it, because they said they did, But then I saw it on there veggie board list, and they said no, But they did have coconut water. Elaine had been looking for some, we had found some in St. Louis. She wanted to get some so I asked the manager, and she said yes they had some and as you can see they did!
Went to library and returned some books, got a few other things, and came back to get message from Dr in St. Louis to call. So we did and found out the good news.
Getting some clouds in, which is unusual. I think its remnants of the Hurricane that hit around Acapulco.
We could use the rain for sure, hearing some thunder in distant so maybe we will.
Anyway, we are grateful for this medical situation, as of now, not being something to cause us to leave.
Love to all. will be back in ministry soon, with reports.
Tom & Elaine
