Medical tests

Delivered more samples to the lab here. They all checked out fine, and I am feeling 100%. I had a colonoscopy exam this morning (25 June). Not the most enjoyable experience, but there is nothing wrong with my inner workings.

I am going to a training conference in July/August, and it will be good to get a break. Then back to work. I love working in Iraq.

Feeling better. More medical tests

I am grateful for everyone's kindness and good wishes. I am much improved, and feeling better every day. I am not 100% recovered yet, and I must go in for a medical test on Weds 25 June. I am having some more laboratory tests run this week. The results are slow to return.

I am changing to a new employer, that I do not wish to disclose at this time. Once my employment is official, I will post the information here.

Feeling much better.

I am feeling much better. I am going in for more tests, and the lab results look promising. Please do not send any packages here just now, maybe later. I am grateful for everyone's good wishes. Iraq is an unhealthy place, and the medical care is substandard.

Still no lab results

The little clinic at Taji, ran out of the reagents necessary to run a white blood cell count (CBC).
I have been able to see a more advanced medical facility. I turned in lab work, and they drew blood (etc), on Wednesday. By Friday 30 May, the results had not been completed. The preliminary results showed me to be dehydrated ( no surprise), and that my tri-glyceride level was high (been high for years).

I am too ill to work, and I am not going to work for some time.
