This is not so much a question but a ray of hope. I just returned from Uganda with my af - it was a working week so exhausting but my heart loved the warm weather and behaved impeccably. I also worked in Kenya with AF. I won't let it stop me doing anything. I did have to take some deep breathes on the plane (I'm not remotely scared but my heart's not overkeen on long air journeys). The only problem I had was lugging my bag from Heathrow to Kings Cross which was a bit of an issue.
