About the Silence

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to give a quick update. I’ve been pretty under the weather recently so I apologize there haven’t been any recent posts. I seem to be finally recovering though so I should get some of these Middle Eastern updates running in the next day or two.  Also so you know what I’ve been going through here is list of a few things I have experienced in the past week or so:

-Concussion and neck injury.
-Flu. Swine or otherwise.
-Back spasms.
-Uncontrolable and unending sweating.
-7 day headache.

To name a few.

*Note. Not all of the aforementioned have been officially confirmed, as I have not actually seen and medical attention as of yet. Based however on what I know and how I feel, my diagnosis is pretty close.

Sorry to hear you’re having a rough time. Be sure to eat your veggies, take your vitamins, and excercize, kiddo…. I sure hope it’s not God’s way of saying that he has some issues with you hangin out in the Holy Land? Maybe a trip to the Wailing Wall might be in order? Be well, young Jedi.
