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.

Gosh... I'm sorry to hear that. I guess you are right, they don't know what we go through until they walk in our shoes. I of course feel bad when my hubby has D (the few times a year that he gets it) but he always makes a comment that he understands what I go through when he has and he always comments how could I not complain with it. I told him that he would have left me years ago because that would be all I did was complain to him. :) I hope that your hubby gets well soon. Are you feeling better?
Hugs, Des

m&ms (((BIG HUGS)))
I wouldn't wish D on anyone, HOWEVER it is almost gratifying when people get it and completely understand what we go through day in and day out. Your poor husband. I hope he is being treated. ???
Good luck coming back to the states... I hope it happens soon! :-)
