Health Update

Thanks to all who have sent expressions of concern, prayer, and encouragement. Although some of my test results still haven’t come in, the best diagnosis at this point is that I picked up viral hepatitis in my travels somewhere. All my symptoms fit in with that basic diagnosis. My liver functions are still off, but not as bad as when I was in the hospital last week. I had to go back to the hospital for a few hours on Tuesday when I broke out in a rash all over my body with unbearable itching. Three minutes after receiving two shots, I felt fine. Viral hepatitis is generally self-limiting, meaning it runs its course. That means I’ll have to take it easy, deal with symptoms, and keep having my blood monitored for the next few weeks. If anything significant changes, I’ll let you all know. Again, thanks for your concern … and my apologies to the good people I had to cancel events with over these days.
