Most of you who read this already know, but last week I found myself in the hospital again getting an emergency surgery on another infection that needed to be taken out. This occurence combined with the strange infection on my finger that has lasted for weeks and puzzled the doctors has lead me to the decision to come home a few weeks early from Germany. This means that I'll not be able to go on my scheduled trips to London, Rome, or Prague, which is really sad. But to be honest, now that I've had several days to think about things, talk to the doctors, my teacher, and my parents and family and friends, I know that coming home is the right thing to do, and I feel very at peace with the whole idea. That's not to say that I wouldn't have loved being able to see more of Berlin as well as the other cities I had planned to visit, but I'm excited to get home and get better for once. I've been sick for a while and think I just need some good old American health care to get me back to 100%.
So, I will look forward to seeing a lot of you soon.
