Kathy's recovery from her hernia surgery has not gone as hoped. The pain from her surgery has been slow to heal. The Doctor said that is to be expected as her "intestines were like Swiss cheese".
More disturbingly is the original pain that brought Kathy to the doctor has not improved and has actually gotten worse since the surgery. The doctors are baffled by what the problem is as nothing shows on her CT scan.
We're still stuck in San Juan Bautista, CA, waiting for more medical tests
to be done. Some can't be performed until a certain time has elapsed since Kathy's
surgery. Waiting. Walking. Reading. A little more waiting...
However, the hills are getting greener around us, which make for lots of "happy cows" munching away. We actually can spot the resident coyote making his rounds among the cattle on our walks. Temps have gotten colder, dipped down to 26 degrees on Sunday morning! Ice on the truck's hood and windshield as we made our way to breakfast! And we've experienced at least 3 minor tremors (around 3.0) in the past couple of weeks. But then we're less than 5 miles from San Andreas Fault that goes up and down California! (pun intended :) At least we're on rubber tires and just bounce!
Bird population seems to be the same, although the Swainson's Thrush has been replaced with the Hermit Thrush.
