Robert is in Kathmandu. After a visit to the CWAC hospital for some tests and an exam, Robert a took a cab to a western style hotel to rest and recover. He will continue to go back to the CWAC hospital for check ups this week. He will be home as planned on June 1.
I am copying two of his texts for you to read.
Elevation 4,593 ft. 1:23 a.m. CDT "I'm in Kathmandu and am so incredibly grateful for all the people who did unbelievable things to save my life. I am rebounding very fast!"
Elevation 4,593 ft. 10:18 a.m. CDT ..."The time difference makes it hard to call plus my cough is too distracting now. I'm also too tired to call today. I plan to get to work on the blog posting tomorrow. I'm refusing to go anywhere but the doctor for a couple of days so I can relax, catch up on emails, and write the blog."
I am sure the ordeal he went through to get from the Summit of Mt. Everest back to the capital city of Nepal will be chronicled here within the week. I am hoping that Robert will take another day of complete rest before he starts any work.
Again, our sincerest thanks to all of those who helped to rescue and then provide Robert a safe and swift return to Lukla and then Kathmandu for needed medical treatment.
Thanks for following, for your thoughts, prayer, and emails of encouragement.
