Re: wintering over at McMurdo

Big V

Bad news!  R just got his med results and there’s one test he needs to retake.  Something about high ALT level (liver-related), not really high but obviously too high for the companies medical standards (i.e. not nearly high enough for hepatitis or liver cancer).  Of course, this is very suprising and upsetting to both of us.  His doctor does not seem concerned with the number, told him it was no big deal and told him to abstain from all alcohol and come in on Monday and retest.  Has this happened to anyone that you know that has actually made it there?  Any info greatly appreciated…………..
