I used up all my "knock on wood" sayings.  I told about 5 people that I have not yet gotten sick; you may remember that from the last blog...
Ok well, I'm sick. Like really sick. Food poisening is what I've been told. I woke up at 2:30 AM puking and you know, other stuff too.  Raven and I made a sick room out of the TV room because there's a bathroom in close proximity which we used all night.  Throughout the early morning, 6 AM on we were joined by 4 other people in our sick room with others sick throughout the house.  Dinner was very good going down last night, not so good coming back up. 
The doctors gave us all Cipro to make it stop. It's an antibiotic and then I had to give a stool sample. Too much info? Sorry this is the topic of conversation amoung the volunteers.  Pretty much we know everything about the other volunteers bodily functions.  I'm feeling a little bit better now and hopefully I'll be able to make it to the rest of the training sessions.  I missed out on language and technical training.  So my Sousou is behind now.
Oh well, I'll catch up.  Everyone is really helpful and wants everyone else to succeed.  So in closing, although I feel like complete crap right now I am still glad I'm here!
Anyone know what the limit on "knock on wood" is before its wears out?

Wish I'd read this before I went there in March 2016.
You're very brave.
