Well, I'm here to say that a trip like the one to Sudan takes it's toll. I'm afraid my longer recovery time may be related to aging. Perhaps I needed more time to get back on my feet before diving into work. Or conditions were harsher than I realize. A loss of thirteen pounds in two weeks, when I wasn't specifically focused on losing weight is an indicator of how harsh conditions were. Come to think of it, I did not see any fat Sudanese! Not that I'm complaining about that side affect. But it's come at a cost. I haven't had the energy to blog or do much else for that matter. And now I am fighting double ear infections. I'm taking the heavy duty antibiotics the doc gave me in case I caught anything over there so hopefully they will clear up pronto. My reserves were definately used up so I'm following up with my doc to get back to a better place.

Hey, shout out to Kate! I just saw your messages. I'm glad you are following and enjoying the blog. I hope to be back to some good writing soon. And Sis, thanks for your encouraging messages too. Hope to visit soon.
