They discharged me from the hospital on Tuesday morning. By the time all the paperwork and accounting was finished, it was early afternoon. I was wheeled to the front entrance, helped into a taxi by Debbie and Lisa Rouhouneimi, and started the trip.
It was almost an hour across town in hot bumpy driving to the house of David and Ann McConkey. On one of the bumps, I hit my head on the ceiling slightly, a common occurrence in Nepal. By the time I got inside, I was feeling a bit more dizzy and nauseous, so I laid down and had a nap.
After supper, I had developed a headache again, so I went back to bed, and spent the night tossing and turning. By morning, I was in severe pain, and it was apparent that I needed to be back at the hospital, so David got us a taxi for the trip back…30 minutes in the lighter, early morning traffic.
Back in the hospital, they did another CT, which showed no new bleed, and the previous blood dispersing, so I was basically put back to bed with pain medicine. The doctors all said it had been a little hasty to send me home.
Apparently bed rest at home is good, but getting there through Kathmandu traffic is not!
By Thursday, the headache had mostly subsided, and now we are just waiting. We feel we have received excellent care, and are grateful for the doctors and staff who have cared for me. We have internet, but the connection is not so good, especially in the afternoons.
The cable TV has great channels of Bollywood movies and local religious channels, as well as Nepali news, but very poor reception of BBC and other channels of more interest to us. So, we have been grateful for visits and calls from friends each day
We thank you for your prayers, notes, posts, etc. Please also pray for the hospital in Tansen as they cope with fewer doctors and other difficulties.
Les & Debbie
