Hey Lady, you need to post SOMETHING ! You may not be on island but you can enlighten us to the joys of being a*s deep in snow. Or something.

Really, your updates are missed and only make some of us worry about you and Chunky.

Yes, I'm afraid that I've been neglecting my Belize Snowbird blog. Chunky was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer last October and our lives have been pretty much filled with doctor appts, surgery, and now...chemo and radiation treatments. Not really good fodder for posting.

Considering the circumstances Chunky is doing very well. He has a pretty aggressive treatment regimen, but it is worth it because it makes his chances for a cure excellent. He tolerates the treatments well, except for some pretty heavy duty fatigue. Luckily, he has always been a great napper(as many a hammock can testify.) His attitude is incredible, and many days he is the one lifting my spirits.

Chunky's main issue with cancer is that it kept him from his beloved San Pedro this winter. When given the diagnosis by the doctor his first words were, "So, what you're telling me is that I'm not going to Belize this year, right?" That was his biggest concern!

Thanks for thinking of us and don't worry, we will be back to lazing on the beach in San Pedro before you know it!

PS...Chunky's cancer was discovered during a routine colonoscopy. So please folks, don't put this important screening off. The procedure is not that big of a deal, and it could save your life.

Thanks for the update Ruthie. Glad to hear that Chunky's treatment is progressing. I can hear him asking the Dr. that question..
See you in San Pedro before you know it.
