We waited all day yesterday for word that Amy and Lori had made the hard trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar. Amy wrote this morning and didn’t mention the trek, but they are in Namche and Bill is quite sick. He has a sore throat, aches, bad congestion, no appetite, etc. The girls found a doctor from another team who agreed to see him. She gave him some of her own antibiotics. Amy and Lori traded Diet Coke and Cranberry juice for her services. They won’t be trekking today, which was actually part of their schedule.

Hopefully I will hear from them tonight.
