Dengue!

You pronounce that like "dang!", or at least that's how I've been saying it. This week I received a gift from a mosquito: Dengue Fever. It's a little tropical virus, not too bad in most cases. Mine was mostly like the flu, I spent about four days in bed, but with lots of muscle aches and the kind of headaches where it hurts to turn your eyes. I have a great rash all over my body, and am pretty sure I'm now in the recuperation phase, and have an itchy sensation all over. The rash actually was quite pretty, I thought. It added a little pattern to my skin. How nice!

I just thought I'd let you guys know where I was this week. I was asleep.

Oh no! I hope you're feeling better.

Much better. It actually got rid of itself in about a week. Nothing like husband doctoring to get you back on your feet!
