Can't leave without first getting parasites!

So, not sure when I will be coming back, but I'll be fine.
I have been in Asuncion today all day. I am trying to get the last little bit of clearance needed in order for them to sign off on my departure. However, it doesn't look like I will be coming home anytime soon. You know...you just can't come to a third world country and not get some parasites....what would that be like? It's just jiardia...the doc says that it is very common in the States. But, I've got like thousands of these things just swimming around in my intestines...it's pretty gross when you think about it. They have this hard outer shell, which lets them keep living once..so once some "leave" my body, more are still there and the process just repeats itself. It's confusing. Anyhow, it explains a whole lot about the health problems I have been having since the second week I was here. So, I started the meds but the doc cannot sign off on his part until "he is satisfied." (so, half need to die.)
