Many of the regular readers of this blog have probably been wondering why Owen has not been posting here for the last few weeks. The reason is that he has been ill and is now in a hospital.
About three weeks ago I got a message from Owen that he was doing a serious worm cleanse and was weak, asking me to take over making regular posts. That is the last I have heard directly from Owen.
When he stopped answering my emails after several days I did some research to find out where he was staying in Cambodia. He was there because of problems in maintaining his visa in Thailand where he has been living for the last 13 years. I also contacted his adopted Thai family to see if they knew anything about him. They soon answered that they had located Owen and one of them was on his way to Cambodia to assist.
Owen was very weak and was transported via ambulance to a hospital where he was given fluids. More ambulance rides brought him back to his home town in Thailand, where he now is recuperating in a hospital. He is being fed via a tube and has assistance with breathing because of a lung infection.
Owen could use our prayers and blessings at this time.
