I discovered this morning that I have no way of calling my mother, at least for the next day or so. I have no home phone, and I am unable to make an international call on my cell phone, and somehow I do not think I can get away with making an international call to Kenya from my work phone. My sister offered to let me call from her house or office, but I can’t get over there until this evening, and by then it’s too late since there’s a 9 hour time difference. Extremely exceedingly frustrating. I still have not spoken to my mother or anyone at the hospital or anyone involved with the expedition. Thankfully my sister is giving me constant and frequent updates.
