Malaria...

Post by JMG » Sun Dec 10, 2017 6:20 am

I think I have malaria again. I feel terrible.

Sorry to bombard the prayer request lately.

I have never had that, but my wife says it is like a really really bad flu.

Praying.

It's not malaria, but I have some sort of crud. Spent the morning in the clinic trying to get a cluster headache under control. Thankfully my head is feeling a lot better.

Praying. (In your avatar, your head looks pretty swollen--you might want to get that checked while you're in the clinic.)

Thanks for the prayers, guys. I really wish this had been malaria as it's usually three days and done (if you take your meds). This is feeling like a really bad flu with some other weird symptoms. All of my scrapes/scratches/cuts are all infected now due to a weakened immune system, that's pretty common here though. So, I'm on antibiotics for those as well as other meds. Yesterday's cluster headache was a beast. Very thankful for our mission docs that helped get it under control. Hoping this all passes soon.
