Workman Resort: Parasites Are Most Welcome

My liver is currently host to a lovely guest known as schistosomiasis. Now before family back home starts freaking out I am on treatment and am feeling much better then I did a couple of days ago. See I thought I might get schisto while I'm living here in Uganda because I spend more time than I should swimming, kayaking and rafting in the Nile, but I apparently still have my infallibility complex. I won't describe my symptoms verbatim, but I will say that I have felt like a train has repeatedly run into my body for the past 48 hours. The treatment should help me feel better by tomorrow which I'm praying for since Moses' Introduction in Masaka is tomorrow.

Here's a picture for my more sciency friends - enjoy.


  1. Take care of yourself and feel better soon. We'll say a prayer or two for you! I saw your mom yesterday at the gym and she mentioned that you're coming home in December. I do hope we'll get to see you when you're here. Let us know when you'll be in town. Feel better!

  2. Thanks Christine - already feeling a million times better! I'll be home in December/January and will send you an email with the dates. I most certainly hope to see you all when I'm here and I will make it happen. We will have to set something up :) Talk with you soon
