I've called my consulate and the embassy in Beijing and I can't get through to anybody. Very, very frustrated with this at the moment. My girlfriend is Chinese and she was studying in the US this semester. She got really sick and the doctors are pretty sure that it's viral meningitis. They say she's not in any danger, but it's going to take a long time for her to get better. Our families agree that the best thing for her now would be to see her parents, but I don't know if the government will agree. To be clear, she's been in the hospital for almost a week. She's not just suffering at home or something.
