#28 – I’m coming home!

From Lynne:

One thing I have not motioned: we have all been sick…in some cases sicker than we had ever been.  It turns out three of us had bugs and recovered in a couple of days, but of course, JoAnn, show-off that she is, has Typhoid Fever!  So, needless to say, we are not hanging around with her anymore!  🙂  She is recovering well.  The last three days we have walked into town and taken bota-botas home.

Love to all who have read and commented here. I have not kept up with the questions, but appreciate each of them. Hopefully the additional photos will compensate. It has been a wonderful trip, and I am grateful for the opportunity and for my gracious and generous hosts, the Sisters of St. Joseph.  Thanks especially to Kyle Kratky, who is the production manager for this blog, and to the staff and board of Doorways, who told me everything was going great whenever I called.

Tomorrow I come home to the states.  I will take a jeep ride to Entebbe, where I will fly to London then Chicago and on to St. Louis, and then I’m home again.

    Get out of there and get home enough is enough “TYPHOID FEVER” run. I saw Carly the other day and she said she miss her mommy.

    Hello, Lynne–

    You’ve often been in my thoughts and prayers, but I must admit that I have just had a chance to view the webpage of your travels. It brought back memories of my own time in Africa. Thanks for the great documentation–loved the pictures.

    I was sorry to hear that you were sick—but it does not look as if it kept you down. Hope you have a safe trip home. I am sorry that i will be in Louisville at the end of the week and miss the homecoming celebration. I will look forward to hearing more about it.

    Mary Gene
