Thanks to all our readers that may have donated to Suzie’s medical fund on Go Fund Me. I had her moved to a cardiac hospital in Des Moines, Iowa. In only 4 days she had a remarkable improvement in her condition. Now 2 weeks in they have her up and walking with the assistance of a high tech walker that can hold all her intravenous bags. She had a new smaller tracheotomy put in  and she is breathing on her own. She still has a drain tube in her right lung. She is receiving physical therapy to learn to swallow again as well as other regimens to regain muscular control. She still is facing another angiogram and angioplasty procedure to possible put a stent in a artery that is mostly blocked. However things are going in the right direction towards her recovery. I’ll try to return to more pleasant postings. I thank everyone for your patience during these difficult times. Tom & Suzie

Highway 307 collapses into an underground Cenote posted by on August 27, 2015

Highway 307 the main artery between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and points south has collapsed during the early morning hours today. (Approx. 3:30 am)
This is near the Hotel Iberostar. The lanes in both directions are completely impassable. An emergency alternate route has been established in an effort to keep traffic moving. Below the roadway a cavern of water was found. This is believed to be the cause of the collapse. Equipment is being brought to the sight in order to repair the roadway. Expect long delays if traveling between the airport and Playa del Carmen and points south both to and from the airport/Cancun for the next few days.
Approximate location of troubled spot.
