Kelly here with a final update:
Let the party begin!!!!!! Seth is now safe and sound at base camp, coughing a lot but soothing his throat with a much deserved Everest Beer. At this point, I’ll turn the blog back over to him. He should be able to write an update of his own within the next day or so with a lot more information for all of us who’ve been living vicariously through his adventures.
Thanks everyone for all your good wishes and prayers! They worked!!
