"No human, nor any living thing, survives long under the eternal sky. The most beautiful women, the most learned men, even Mohammed, who heard Allah's voice, all did wither and die. All is temporary. The sky outlives everything. Even suffering." - Bowa Johar, Balti poet.

Medical Hold! WhAt?!

Well I was packed up and ready to hit the road to Chicago on the 8th of January, but Peace Corps Washington D.C. called me up and said "wait!" Come to find out that whatever my dentist sent Peace Corps D.C. was what stopped me from leaving to back to Morocco. I will not get into details other than I need to get a crown (finally after 6 + months of waiting) but there might be more issues beyond that. We shall see how these next couple weeks pan out for me in the dental world. Cross your fingers for me because dentist and I do not mix well.. ek.
I hope that my host family knows that I will be back, along with my landlord. It would be bad to come back to my house to see it rented out to another person..hah. I am already missing my site and my kids, along with my good friends in Skoura . I will stay positive that things will work out. I mean it is another week or two with my family, friends, and when I return to my site, I will have one new awesome crowned tooth !

This is so crazy that you are being held up because of your teeth! I hope things get fixed--and done well and that you can come back in good health before too long! :)
