Thanks everyone for your concern and support.
just a small update - I am in Chattanooga, TN staying with friends.
I didn't end up going to the hospital. The doctor got me in right away
and did a ton of blood-work, a CXR, and abdominal ultrasound.
Then i got referred to a Hepatologist who has taken over my care.
the good news is that I don't have Hep A,B,C,D etc. so that is so exciting,
they have done more blood-work and I have a follow-up apt. this Thurs.
with the Hepatologist.
He is thinking it may be a toxic hepatitis from medications I have taken
for malaria or possibly an auto-immune hepatitis.
So, I am feeling better, am less fatigued, and eating more.
I am planning to go back to Tchad as soon as I can buy a ticket/get my
visa situation straightened out.
I would LOVE to hear from anyone and everyone and catch up while I am here.
i am literally carless and entirely free so if anyone wants to call me,
my temporary phone number for a month is:
I would love to hear from you!!
