Turns out we did bring a little guy home from Haiti. But not the one we hoped. This little parasite’s name is Giuardiasis. We call him Gordy for short. He has been making his presence known for a few weeks, and the doctors confirmed it yesterday. In fact – a whole slew of doctors. Turns out our family has sparked many a consultation at our local medical group.

Prescriptions have been filled. Pills have been taken. We wait expectantly for our tummies to respond.

Gordy, buddy, it’s been real, but it’s time to go.
