It’s official, I’m headed to Maine. No, dear reader, I’m not leaving Panama for good but to help my mother relocate in the Portland, Maine area next month. Portland is the largest city in Maine and is highly ranked for safety and affordable housing along with having many historic sites and of course, beautiful nature in abundance.
She loves Panama but when looking at the big picture it seems that Maine makes more sense at this point in her life. She has ties to friends and relatives in Maine, the language is English (duh), and an independent living situation may suit her well.
We are all doing the research, emails and phone calls necessary so the transition will hopefully be smoother.
Panama has been good health wise, her doctors have been able to correct some complaints that the US doctors were unable to deal with. It has been a learning experience for all of us, Ma is an adventurer and now it’s off to a new adventure.
I want to thank the folks who made suggestions as for what to write about here in Panama, I’ll work on that as time allows. I feel I should post about the upcoming move since it may be on interest/help to others who have a parent who is in a similar situation.
Keep tuned to the continuing saga…..
