Hello again friends!

Well, the last few days have been very busy and not busy at the same time. I woke up in the middle of the night last night to find a brilliant yellow moon illuminating the forest we live in. My sleep lately has been troubled with coughing and concern over my health. Normally I am one of those irrepressibly optimistic people who sees sunshine despite the rain but I confess to being down several times over the last 2 months. Today I return to the clinic for more tests. That will bring me to a total of 9 visits in 11 weeks. During this time my Doctor of many years has moved away (to northern Alaska to work with the natives) and I have gone through a series of different physicians since. Well, long story short - we think we have figured out what is going on in side of my body! It seems likely that I have developed some sort of fungal infection in my sinus and lungs. Today I take the tests to help determine what type of infection it is and next month I will be seeing a lung specialist to begin treatment. This is all good but the toll on the family purse has been rough! I dont mind a slowdown on the job (the whole country is taking a big hit these days) but I am distressed and anxious that I am not getting anything done here around the house!! (and there is lots and lots to do...) Anyway, thanks to all of you out there who have lent your support, ears and sympathy, especially my dear wife, Weng. She has been amazing, caring, loving and a rock to our little family.
