I sneaked out of the hospital, ate a banana and bought two snickers bars to snack on later. Found an internet cafe and thought I'd drop you a line. They want me to stay a minimum of five days. They have me in the infectious disease hospital since they don't know what I got (I just call it Delhi Belly).

I'm going to try and get a translator later today to argue with them and let me go today or tomorrow at the latest. I could just run away but they have all my details.

After that I still have to get back to Rzh. I only have the clothes I am in. I haven't showered in 2 weeks, and have been in these clothes for 2 1/2 days. My pants are falling down so I guess I've lost weight.

But thanks for praying, also the community in Rzh has been amazing with phone calls, SMSs and care and concern.

Be back to normal soon.
Keep Looking Up (as my Gran would say)
