Back Home Again in Indiana . . .

Greetings All:
This will probably be our last posting. Andy and I have returned to Evansville and he has seen two doctors to date. They have placed him on a month-long regimen of steroid treatment to gain control of the problem. Once they have it under control, they can then determine the proper course of action.
We are living in the lap of luxury in a downtown loft condo while we wait for Andy to get to the point where we can go more than an hour without a bathroom. Once we get there, we'll run down to Nashville and start looking for new housing.
Stay in touch via Facebook. We'll post pictures there!!
China was a wonderful, unique experience. We are ready to go back!!

Friday 10/2

It is with regret that we report we are returning to the US. Somehow, Chinese authorities found a copy of the photo with me, the panda, and the the marshmallow sauce. Customs is escorting us to the airport on Monday.

Actually, I am having an ulcerative colitis flare up. I had hoped that it would resolve itself. I have lost weight the last two months, am experiencing fatigue, and can't stay out of the bathroom. As a side note, the worst combo of ailments to have in China are gastro problems in combination with bad knees. That's visual humor folks.

Anyway, Joan and I leave for Beijing on Sunday, for LA on Monday, and for Evansville on Tuesday. We have Dr. appointments set up for me on Wednesday. Hopefully, there will be a simple solution.
