At least, I'm hoping to be there - this week has been another very difficult one, healthwise. On Monday I wasn't able to walk in a straight line, such was my dizziness. Tuesday's trip to the hospital resulted in a very confident (cocky?) doctor saying his medicine would cure me in three days. I''m now halfway through the third day with no sign of improvement. My gout returned yesterday morning (though I can walk on it) and I broke a tooth (dentist booked for next week). Neckache, headache, toothache, runny nose, itchy rash, sore throat, dizziness, swollen glands, haemorrhoids, gout - it seemed like nothing was working yesterday. I didn't leave my flat - just rested and felt sorry for myself. Twelve hours sleep later, I feel a little chirpier (although all the syptoms are still here) and I'm heading to the school today to practice the talk I'm giving in Hangzhou (in English and Chinese!) and then teach my adults class in the evening.
