Lhotse Expedition

18th April, 2012 - Day 3 at Everest Base Camp (17,500 ft.)

Clear with light wind.  Good weather for the rescue flight which arrived at 8:30 AM and all three were on their way to Kathmandu a little after 9 AM.  Shortly after the rescue flight the rest of the Krapf group started their hike back to Lukla.

Terri convinced me to visit the HRA doctors.  Luanne listened to my problems and recommended several drugs to start immediately.   I retired back to our tent and took the drugs followed by more rest.  I was not able to eat anything again today and only got some liquids down.  I am sure this is a pain for Terri.  The good news is that other than a bit of a cough she is doing well.  By evening I had chills and continued the travelers special.
