Looks like a great bowl of soup! Sorry to hear about the chemo though, I hope everything goes ok with that.


Glad you are doing well Ed! We're all relieved.....


What a wonderful place, story and result. So happy for both of you.


Ed, I am so happy that you're doing so much better! That is great news indeed!


I can only fathom what you are going thru but am so glad to hear that you are doing well. Chicken soup does do something comforting to the soul and it looks like La Flor's version was *just* what you needed. My nanny some time ago taught me how to make chicken soup and I still, to this day, add fresh cilantro and lime to my chicken soup. The flour tortillas look like blankets here!
Is there a Mexican restaurant here in SD that offers a daily variety of soups like La Flor? Thank you for sharing your story and your miracle. It was inspiring to read this Sunday morning.

Thanks, everyone, for the comments. I am very happy to be doing well. I feel better than I have in a few years.

Actually Faye, all I am going thru right now is the beginning of retirement. I had recovered so well that I was back at work in January (which is one of the reasons I haven't posted in a few months), but I decided that I should quit work, collect Social Security and my pension, and enjoy life more. My dog thinks that was a good decision (Is it time for a walk?).


Dear Ed,

I have folowed this blog for many years and read a lot of your posts. I live in London, UK and we don't get good Mexican food like you did. However reading your posts and seeing your pictures always made me feel like I was there.

I have just read your post and was dismayed to discover that you are undergoing chemo! I hope all is well and keep up the good fight!

Great review! I used to live in Yuma ,and this makes me long to return!

Ed (from Yuma)

Wow, Sean, London UK. Thanks for the good thoughts, but I have't had a chemo treatment in 8 months. Things can change, but right now all is good, healthwise. As for good Mexican food in London, I understand, and I sure wish we could trade you guys a Mexican restaurant for a curry shop.

Thanks Kevin; maybe you can come back for a visit!


The next time I'm sick, I may have to make a long drive. It sounds miraculous.

Yeh, jan, it seems to be good for what ails you.

Hi Ed - I had no idea, glad to hear you are feeling better and enjoying retirement - now get out there and eat more, so us Yumans will know where to find the "good stuff."

Ed (from Yuma)

Hi Ann. Good to hear from you here at the blog. I hope to contribute more once I become fully retired. Be sure to pass on any tips about new places you've heard about in town.
