Well we thought we were on the mend…

Banning and Reagan still stayed home from school today. Headache and eye pain… Denise isn’t feeling any pain today for the first time in 8 days… she is just tired & weak. I’m about 80% (get tired easily). We should know more tomorrow if it was malaria/dengue fever/ some other tropical fun.

These are pics of the first 2 days when we felt sick. Little did we know; it was only the beginning. Reagan & Banning felt a little achy so they slept in our room on the floor. The next morning the boys felt achy & had a headache but could still rest & play quietly.

Then the next 4 days & nights after that were a blur of misery.

Here are a couple of pics of Denise, Banning, Easton playing parchesi today, as you can see they are feeling much better but it has been a very rough week & a half. The joint & back pain, body aches, fevers & chills were relentless. I hope we never have to go through that again…in the peak of it, we couldn’t even sleep but moving around was not an option either, it was miserable. I think on the fourth night of it all, they finally got something to help them sleep.

And here is the little bugger that can cause such problems…
Mosquito
The mosquitos here are small & you don’t feel them when they bite…they are not our friends anymore…

As I type this Banning just started the intense itching, rash phase. I couldn’t stand this as it felt like millions of needles were poking your skin & also at the same time like millions of bugs itching every inch of your body; Luckily this is the tail end of it…he should be feeling much better these next few days…

Thank you all for your prayers. We really appreciate them, they are working, we are healing…
