Clinic Art

With most museums closed for the pandemic and me now low on energy, it looks like I won’t be visiting Art Museums in San Jose during radiation. so I will share today just a few of the art pieces I photographed with cellphone at the clinic and tomorrow some more from the hotel.

These are from the waiting rooms and treatment hallway. I didn’t go into the doctors’ offices.

And in the parking lot I consider this sign a type of art: 🙂

TRANSLATION: We are life expectancy, for the cancer patient. Twenty-first Century Radiotherapy – Or most here translate “esperanza” as “hope,” making this “hope of life” but my online dictionary considered the context and used “expectancy” as a more modern translation. Languages cannot be translated word for word in every case. Spanish speakers know what it means! 🙂

And at 2:30 this afternoon I get the stitches removed from my left eyelid. Hoping for minimal pain.

¡Pura Vida!

  1. Best of luck with the removal of stitches. Hope it is relatively pain free.

    Love the art work in the clinic. So much more vibrant that most of the bland and generic stuff found in US healthcare places.

  2. I’ll be thinking of you at 2:30 (3:30 here) and praying the removal of the stitches is not too painful. Didn’t you say Dr. Coto would be doing it? I have a feeling he will take good care of you!

    The art work is beautiful. From what you have shown on your blog you seem to be surrounded by various forms of art everywhere you go in Costa Rica!

    1. Dr. Hernández will remove the stitches. He’s the one who did the big surgery and I trust him a lot, thus expect it to be quick and relatively painless. We will see! 🙂

      And yes, there is much art everywhere in Costa Rica which is just one more thing to like about this country! 🙂
