There will be no posts while we’re away. Internet is too expensive! However Toy will take plenty of pics on his new iPhone+ and I will post a selection on our return.

This will be my first ever cruise, so it is very much a test trip!

My Foot on my Return to Chiang Mai

My apologies for the lack of posts on this site.

It all began on the 6th October on which was to be a routine trip to Australia. During my rounds of doctors a Doppler test confirmed that I have a blocked artery in my left foot. Shortly after that I developed a painful infection in the same foot (cellulitis) which resulted in 10 days in hospital there. Initially I was treated with iv antibiotics and later a long course of oral antibiotics. In fact I completed the antibiotics yesterday. Progress is very slow and the foot is still painful.

On 8th December we fly to Singapore before embarking for a cruise to Hong Kong on the 11th. We disembark in Hong Kong on22nd December and fly back to Chiang Mai on Christmas Day. I hope my foot will not be too painful during the cruise.
