I just spoke Dr. Debasis at Monkmed in India and my meds are approved for shipping. I will arrive in Hobart on Feb. 1 and start tx on Feb. 2. This has been an extraordinary experience so far and I am looking forward to 30 days of healing, hiking and exploring in Tasmania. Thanks to all of you who are making this possible.

Can't wait to see drop bears and devils! I just found out today that my meds have arrived and waiting for me to get there. I arrive in Hobart on Feb. 1 and will start on Feb. 2. Very excited about the trip and the healing. Any other tips on what I should do there? Assuming I have energy, I would like to hire a car and drive around. Also very interested in day hikes and happy to have company if anyone is keen.

HUGE thanks to Tim at Monkmed for service about and beyond. And to Dr. Freeman and FixhepC for creating a solution to what is really a simple problem that has been complicated by greed.

Great to hear you're on the tx journey now too Honker, only 2 weeks to go :)

One recommendation if you have the means, get to Cradle Mountain if you possibly can - breaktaking scenery and lots of hiking opportunities. Visited in 1996 and I really wish I could go back there.
