It was a good news/bad news kind of day. The good news is that while I will still need medication that makes me sick for my diabetes, I will not have to have insulin injections. The medication had brought me down to a high normal reading. The bad news is I still have to take the medication and stay sick for some time to come. My anemia is better thanks to taking vitamins and eating liver twice a week, but I still have a ways to go. John found a glucose level tester in a little shop in Musoma. Brand new and unbelievable. We bought a fan for Karen as this is one of the hottest summers we've had. John had a high level meeting with the head guys at TTCL (the national phone company) and Bunda should be getting 3G service next month (for those who know what that means). I was wiped out after we got back and especially sad to discover that the second ingredient in ketchup is sugar. John also found the equivalent of Sweet and Low at a local store and bought all they had, so I can have iced tea with a sugar taste at least. John spent the evening tonight at the Australian missionaries house. About once a month they invite him over for dinner and to play board games--he loves it. I've got a lot of emailing and writing to do, but seldom feel good enough to do it, still you do what you gotta. God give me strength.
