Rumours of my demise are premature. Hello, everyone!I had blood clots in my leg, had to check myself out of hospital against medical advice (the hospital assigned physician was a dinosaur and doctors I trust more were telling me no, I didn't need to stay in hospital for 15 days.) Other news? We've been selling our worldly goods in preparation for leaving Ecuador this summer. My son will graduate soon. Oh, and I climbed an active volcano. Cool!
