Bosnian refugee (and now citizen of America) Slobo Trbanek continues to improve on his English, and he is happy to be back at work after a lengthy illness that nearly cost him his life.

Greetings!

This is your friend, Slobo Trbanek, writing.  Hope this find you well; I doing a lot better than was last time I write.

I back at work now at store; good to see boss, working-friends, customers again!  Everyone worry about me, pray hard for me; prayers must have work because I still here!  :)

I have flesh eating sickness that nearly kill me; it go into my hips, tried to go in arms, up my sides, but doctors find way to stop it, and I was in hospital for months.  I still not quite where I need to be, but doctor say I well enough to work, so I work again.

Have to take it slow, one day at a time; if I go too fast, I could get sick again; I don't need that, no!

I have lots of heavy scars on body; don't like to wear shortened sleeves or short pants; people stare at my scars, make me uncomforable.  I also itch if I sweat or get hot; it's horrible!!

I still walk on crutch-sticks, but lately I use my wheeled chair, as I get tired too fast.  It hard to walk with no legs; my arms get tired!

I waiting to get fake legs, that way I won't need crutch-sticks; they not done yet.  It take long time to make fake legs for people; they have to be just right or they don't work.

In the meantime, I use my wheeled chair or my sticks.  Have to be patient, yes!

I still go to English school, as does mama, we learning new words every day.  My writing getting better too; I write better than I speak English, but at least I now understand more of it.  We love it!  I always look forward to learning more English!

Mama, she loves it too; when she talk of school, her face lights up, and she look like little girl!  It's so cute to watch her!

Other than work part time or go to school, I no do much.  Slobo Trbanek have a very boring life.  I don't go out much; too hard to get places by wheeled chair or on crutch-sticks!  So I just stay home, play on computer, read, watch stupid programmes on telly.

I sorry if I no have more exciting life; maybe when I get done with English school or my fake legs come and I learn to walk on them, things will change.  Until then, I wait.  *sigggh* 

Well, I go make soupa now.  Mama and I have cabbage-and-potato soup; it stick to your ribs, make you fat.  :)  I will write in here another time; until then, this is your friend, Slobo, saying bye-bye for now!  Be good and may the God bless you always!

~Slobo.  :)

*To be continued.*

First come the learning of the language, then the understanding of the new country, and the making of friends, and the circles wide until you are one of us with all your heart!
