Mary checks out the medical facilities

With only 3 weeks to go, we were both struck down with a nasty virus just over a week ago. I won't describe the symptoms but they were horrible and typically tropical. I started to get better after 4 days but Mary lingered on and two days ago was admitted into Woodland's Hospital for tests and treatment. She's doing well and will be out on Monday, hopefully a new woman. The treatment and friendliness of the staff were a very high standard. Nothing to worry about. just one of those things. She has responded well and hopefully we will both be back to work sometime next week.

That leaves only 2 weeks to go before we finish and it gives us some very tight deadlines to finish our work. But we are determined and are confident all will be done when we finish in NCERD on 6th February 2009 after 2 years in Guyana.

We will be flying out on 13th February for 10 days in New York followed by 6 nights in Las Vegas so that we can see the Grand Canyon which we missed last time we were there. We will be back in England on 2nd March 2009 ready to start the next stage of our lives!!
