Not an easy decision to come to but I had to pull the trigger. Unfortunately, after getting a tough and serious bacterial infection and after hearing chemo will end sooner than expected I decided I had to cancel AZ for another time and concentrate all my strength on finishing treatment this summer.
But hey-it gives me a chance to get a lot done locally, though my anticipated trip to South Beach had to be called off the morning of because of temp line problems. I’m pretty excited to see what I can do, now that I’m a captive audience to the birding scene during shorebird migration in the Northeast. Maybe another pelagic as well? A rarity chase?
