Life has been one big roller coaster the last few weeks...

Man life has been one big roller coaster for my family lately. I recently left Buenos Aires because of a huge medical scare with my wife. I can't say too much out of respect for my wife's privacy. However, things looked really bad and scary.

After being told this nightmare had a 10% chance of not being true, we placed all of our chips on that 10%. We came out roses. The last test came back and cleared her of everything but a nasty infection.

Now we are stuck back in the US for awhile. Don't worry I'll still be posting about life in BA. Although it looks like we will be stuck in Norman, Oklahoma of all places. I might have to change the name of the blog to A Texas-EX in OU Country.

The way I look at it, it is a small price to pay to know that my wife will be by my side for years to come... Well OK, it is a big price to pay for any Texas-EX, but she is worth it. I love her that much.

Hi Dave,
I hope your wife is recovering well, and that you can go back to my Buenos Aires soon. It's so refreshing to read your views about Argentina, and your pictures are outstanding.
Keep the good work.
Best for you and your family.

I just read that Norman, OK was voted one of the best places to live in the US by MONEY.

Seems like luck is on your side.

Glad to hear she is okay after all. I know how scary it is sitting on your hands waiting for the results!

Glad your wife is OK and but you're stuck in OK. Irony? Norman isn't so bad, my parents live in Holdenville, about 45 minutes due east. It could be so much worse! When do you get to go back?
