bad food, bad mozzies

I've been out sick from work this week. Thought I had some bad food on Sunday because I was a sick birdie on Monday morning. A few days of fever and a rash prompted me to go to the doctor and for Leo to come home from perfect waves (thanks baby). I had my exam, we came home, about 1/2 hour later the blood team came to the house and took samples from me (strange but oddly nice to give blood in the comfort of ones own home). Today was the follow up and while I was sure it wasn't anything but bad food poisoning, it turns out I have a touch of dengue fever. Didn't quite expect those results.

So, my job for the next several days is to rest and eat and drink 3 liters of water each day. Sounds like a plan. Should be back to good by Monday. I'm lucky. Other friends have been really sick with this. I haven't been well but I'm no where near needing hospitalization or weeks off from work.

Thankful and on the mend,

Sweetheart...sorry to hear about your setback. When you're back to normal, get in the gym and get strong and build up the old immune system.

Happy Valentine's Day!
