Shortly after Dave’s surgery (Monday night), I started to run a fever. Turns out I have Dengue fever. Turns out, Dave, who asked for a Dengue blood test before his surgery, has it too. The good news is Dave has almost no symptoms. I have been achey and feverish and basically useless and sick all week. Dave managed to get himself released from the hospital early because he was worried about all of us at home.
It’s been a long haul and it’s hard not to feel very homesick when everyone’s been sick. But, it’s bound to look up soon! Today is the first day all week I didn’t wake up with a fever. And, that’s good b/c most people can be down with Dengue for two weeks.
