Today was a huge day for the athletes trying to make it to the finals. For the men a cut from 20 to 10, and then a cut from 10 to 5 with the competition being so fierce that people couldn’t believe the scores they were seeing. I just finished spending about 5 hours with Emily in a hospital getting her severe bronchitis dealt with. They wanted to keep her overnight, for a small price of 500 Euros (about $1,000). The IV she got dealt with her dehydration, and she got her first dose of anti-biotic. The last doctor we saw here was an idiot for not prescribing an anti-biotic to deal with the infection. Sorry, that was all off topic.
