Marcus is OK!Darrell
01/31/2013, Los Hados, Jal, MX
Let me start by yelling "MARCUS IS OK". They detected and removed a sizable hematoma tonight. And the cruisers network is awesome. The weather was completley against us all the way here and it took about 7 hours into the wind and waves. It kinda felt like home... All the way down the coast we where constantly being contacted on VHF asking about Marcus or relaying information from one of the boats with a local cell that Nicki could contact directly. When Curtis and I arrived in Los Hados the boats Moontide and Ojo Rojo where in a dinghy waiting to let us know the good news.

Well the blood test for Appendicitis came back negative, much to our relief. The clinic released Marcus to Dr. Nava's care for 2 weeks. Yesterday we hoped for improvement that never came. This morning we asked Legacy to help us get Marcus to shore (his dinghy is better for beach landings) and off to Dr. Nava's office we went. Marcus has not been able to keep anything down for 2 days so it's starting to get more serious. Dr. Nava says an ultra-sound is our next step and the only one close is Manzanillo. I called our friends Dwight and Mary Lou to see if they could help shuttle us around. Nicki and Marcus took a cab back to Cihuatlan (of which I incorrectly spelled on the last post). Mary Lou met them there and continued on to the hospital in Manzanillo. This is becoming especially frustrating because I am stuck on the boat with a phone running out of minutes and no way to reload it from here. Curtis and I may move the boat back to Los Hados tonight.

I just got word that Marcus will need surgery so we are moving the boat tonight. I will keep everyone posted.
Marcus to the Hospital!Darrell

Marcus had a surfing accident yesterday that culminated in side pains and the inability to hold food or liquids down. After 24 hours we got a doctor out to the boat to check him. The doctor is concerned about an appendix issue so Nicki and Marcus are heading to Zihuatlan in Armando's (the doctor) car for blood tests and xray's.
Heading North, and catching up with old friends.Darrell

So now we are finally heading North again. And back to Bara de Navidad for re-provisioning and water. Yesterday we had a wonderful surprise. Over the air we heard Companero from Vallejo hailing us! Joel Sorum and his niece Micah where at Melaqui for the night on their way to Ixtapa. Joel is a dear friend from VYC and this was a great surprise for us. We had breakfast this morning at Roosters (a crazy Canadian restaurant) before they headed south for Santiago. They are planning inland excursions for old ruins, maybe next time. I hope that we run into him again.
Nope, not heading North just yet....Darrell

The boys, droopy eyed and pouty, begged to go back to Santiago Bay with Northern Passage & Sweet Dreams. It didn't take much since we enjoy hanging out with them anyways... but we had to make 'em work for it. So back we went. There where only a few highlights, but memorable ones...
