Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to a police officer standing over you asking your name, the year you were born and what city you lived in … and not knowing the answer.
I’d just had a seizure…
My first real memory of the night aside from the glimpses of the paramedics and police officer was in the Emergency Room where they hooked me up to a machine that monitored my heart, them taking blood and giving me an IV for my headache, and doing a CT scan of my brain. The results of those tests all came back normal and I had an appointment today to have an EEG, which also came back normal.
Until the Peace Corps medical office approves me for service, my departure is indefinite.
I may or may not be leaving for Paraguay. They said it was still possible to start training late but I’m not getting my hopes up. I’ve been willing to go wherever they need me, and I’m still willing to go wherever they need me. I’ve just had my sights set on Paraguay for so long now that anywhere else will take a while to get used to.
