Lost In Shanghai Blog Status

Hello followers of Lost In Shanghai.

I apologize for the big lull between posts.  Unfortunately, I was living the China dream a little too hard and was hit by a car while on my scooter on the streets of Shanghai.  My leg is fractured in several places and we decided that my best chance for regaining full mobility of that leg was to return to the U.S. for treatment.

While this means a bit of a hiatus for the blog, fear not — I will be back.  I still have much to write about, not the least of which is the tale of my accident and subsequent 10-day adventure through the Chinese health care system.

Thank you for your continued support of Lost in Shanghai, and all the feedback you have provided me over the years.  I look forward to getting back behind the keyboard as soon as possible.

  1. Get well soon Howard. This is grave news. My husband just bought a scooter two weeks ago, and I was leaning on your accounts of driving around (safely) on your scooter for support. Keep us posted! I am rooting for you!

  2. Howard we find ourselves in a similar position to the one you were in 3 years ago, a family of four plus 2 dogs and have recently been offered the opportunity to move out to Shanghai. Your blog is great and really brings to life the reality of living in Shanghai with a family. If we do move we are keen to take the dogs with us as a key part of the family and would help the girls settle, would be great to hear what life is like with dogs in Shanghai as we are concerned about how dog friendly the city is and how restrictive it is when exploring other parts of Asia and visits home.

    Also what has been the impact on Cassidy’s asthma as this is also something we are concerned about.

    Looking forward to your next post and wishing you a speedy recovery
