My husband started having chills, fever and profuse diarrhea around 10 last night. His temp at 3AM was 102.1, and he was still having the big D this morning. I took a stool sample to the local lab here in Bolivia this morning. I have a strong feeling that he might have contracted the shigella that I was diagnosed with a week 1/2 ago? I have to add, and only you all will understand, that it makes me feel a little better that he's succumed to an intestinal infection finally! Now maybe I won't feel so alien with 4 infections under my belt in the past 9 months. I am also wondering if our Maid is cleaning our vegetables properly. Maybe this will make him want to leave Bolivia sooner!
I sure miss the good ol USA.
