Ups and Downs

Up: Just a few more days until I am stateside once again.  I am excited, but super anxious about the trip alone with W.

Big Up: Ryan and I won the weekly cash giveaway at the club (called "Moolah").  We couldn't believe our ears when our names were called!

Down: Our tiny base is reeling over a drowning accident involving one of the clinic's nurse practitioners over the weekend.  She is currently on life support at the local Turkish hospital.  Although I do not know her personally (we have met once I think), many of my friends do and are understandably in a state of shock and disbelief.  When you live in a small town, the ripple affect of things always touches you, even if you are not directly affected.  You see the same faces day in and day out, and to think that one is suddenly missing is quite upsetting to think about.  Please remember this community in your prayers, particularly the Medical Clinic, as we come to terms with this in the coming days-whatever the outcome.

That's all, folks.
