Sheryl was in the hospital, all is well now

Apologies for the silence. Sheryl was in the hospital here in Mumbai for four days with a severe stomach infection and dehydration that she picked up in Jaipur, we think. All is well now, she’s been discharged, is steadily improving and is able to keep down solid food. We weren’t able to call or email anyone - all our phone airtime was dedicated to parents and the insurance company, and an internet connection wasn’t available. Please send some encouraging words to, visit and make a comment, or call us at +91 96 5554 1562. She could use them.

Thanks so much for the good wishes. She’s replying to your message right now. All is well, she’s feeling much better and will be strong enough to move on from Mumbai in a couple of days.
