I appologize for my lack of posts. The internet here is the most sorry excuse for internet I've ever seen. I'm amazed I got on at all. I've been keeping busy. Still feel lousy, pain wise, and I need to seriously re-evaluate if I could successfully do this again. But this has been a great experience, and I have enjoyed seeing my friends.
Time to get dressed, feed the puppy and try to get something to eat, though I'll note nausea is really high.
