I'm home!

I'm officially home!

After getting back from Thailand, I spent a week in California recuperating from jetlag.  Following my girlfriend's wedding (the best ever), I flew home to KY.  I'll be here for almost 2 weeks, then will return to CA for the beginning of school.

See y'all soon!

Farewell BKK

Dear Blog Fans,

It is my second-to-last day here in hot, humid Bangkok! No more sweating! No more scary motorcycle taxis nearly running me over on the sidewalk! No more food poisioning!

But also no more super cheap, delicious food. No more cha yen (that deliciously sweet tea you can get at Thai restaurants in the US, but is way better and costs 50 cents here). No more temples. No more exotic smell of incense in the air. No more traveling.

It will be great to be home, but I hate to leave Thailand. Everyone keeps telling me to come back and visit them. I would love to--but I have a few other countries on my list to visit first! Of course, I was only able to visit Cambodia and Laos this summer, which leaves Vietnam, Burma, and Singapore (at least) for another trip. Hmmm... a post-bar trip perhaps?

I leave for the US the day after tomorrow, so I'll see you all soon!

I'm off to Laos!

I'll write about my weekend on Wednesday or Thursday when I return to Bangkok.

See you all then!

I finished the antibiotics I got after leaving the hospital, but sttill have a nasty deep cough.

So I went back to the doctor yesterday, and he said I still have bronchitis. So I got THREE new medications: an antibiotic, a coughing thing, and a different coughing thing. One of the drugs makes my heart pound and my hands shake... It's not uncomfortable really, just odd. I'll be taking the meds for a week, then am supposed to go back for one more check-up. But in a week, I'll only have one week until I fly HOME!!! So depending on how I feel, I may just go home and visit a doctor there, where my friends and family can take care of me.

To everyone I haven't e-mailed in a shamefully long time: I will write soon, I promise!!!

So, turns out I was/am really sick.

I just spent 2 nights in the hospital. My first time in a hospital (since I was born, at least).

I'm out now, and feel better, but am still sick. Will update again later.

How I Know I'm Really Sick

I know I'm really sick because my sweet friend brought me a cup of Swensen's chewy chocolate ice-cream, and after one small bite, I put the rest in the freezer.

Those who know me will realize how shocking this is.

Sick (Again)

So now that I'm over my food poisoning, I suddenly am sick again!

I started feeling bad yesterday, then woke up today with a fever, chills, sore throat, cough, and terrible headache.

I just got back from the hospital, and the doctor said I have tonsilitits. I now have 4 meds to take, and feel very sorry for myself!

Only 3 and 1/2 weeks until I leave for home. I think my body is telling me that it's time to go!

Food Poisoning Update

I'm over my food poisoning, for the most part.

Did I mention how nice the hospitals here are? I always dread doctors visits, mainly because of the long waits involved between filling out paperwork, the quick physical by a nurse, seeing the doctor, waiting for a prescription, and filling the prescription. But it took about 5 minutes on Friday for me to get through the preliminaries and speak to the doctor. Then after a chat and a bit of poking and prodding, I got a cute little shopping bag full of drugs and was sent on my way

I took my last pill Monday morning, but I still don't feel quite like my old self. But I don't feel bad enough to go back to the hospital just yet, so I'm going to wait and see how I feel in a few days.

I still have no appetite, so haven't eaten much in nearly 2 weeks now (except rice and soup), and I'm starting to look a bit thin. This is the only positive aspect of food poisoning!
