Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays everyone. I have been spending my days at the San Juan Cosala hot springs pool. Not a bad way to spend the winter. Here are some photos. You can see that it is practically empty. Next week may be a different story because the children are out of school now. But I hope I can still do my laps. Since I fell down the stairs three months ago, I haven't been swimming much. I saw the doctor last week and he wanted me to have x rays and an MRI. Possibly an operation. 

 I didn't get the x rays or MRI and I canceled my next appointment. I decided to try swimming instead for a few weeks. It seems to be working.  So far, no more knee pain. The cost of a twenty ticket pass is far cheaper than an operation and a lot more fun!

  2. Happy Holidays! I hope your swimming will be the "fix" you need: cheaper, less invasive, and definitely good for the spirit.

  3. RICE always helps me. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Ice the sooner the better. A cut or sore heals 3X faster when it is covered up with antibiotic cream.

  4. Is this the same pool I went to with you? I don't remember the slide.

    1. Yes, But we were probablly not at the one with the slide. There are two large pools. The first one has the slide. It opens later than the second one. p

  5. What a great idea. Swimming is great exercise with little impact.

    Have you ever gone down the slide?
