Bangkok Bits

As an exhausted Peg sleeps, let me catch you up to date…

* I saw my Bangkok cardiologist this morning and BP is fine and under control. He told me all is well, to go shopping, and to enjoy my holiday;

* Yesterday Peg was cleared for flat sleeping and moderate intake of alcohol;

* The entire Bumrangrad experience has been positive…everyone is very friendly; their system is completely digitally automated; the entire operation, both grounds and buildings are spotless; before any step progresses, staff reviews with you…1) your name and your confirmation that the name is correct, 2) what you are there for, 3) who you are going to see, 4) what has been prescribed and 5) do you understand everything;

*The residence we stayed in for the previous 12 days was fine, but steral feeling…we needed a change of scenery and checked out at mid-day;

* For Peg’s second week of recovery, we checked into the lovely and beautiful Ariyasomvilla, a short block away from the hospital. She loves the room with balcony overlooking flowering trees. After showering and changing clothes, we went to their restaurant for lunch and learned that their restaurant “Na Aroon” was awarded a 2011 designation for best restaurant food and service in Thailand. We have arrived…

Old reliable delicious and delectable Pad Thai

* Personal schedules continue to be haphazard…we are currently operating under the premise…if you’re tired, sleep; if you’re hungry, eat; if you’re bored, play cards and read; if you want to watch TV, there is an 8 out of 10 chance the movie’s theme will be centered on either dinosaurs or vampires; and as of today, if you want to have a glass of wine…cheers! Life is good! To be continued…
