Dengue Fever

| Comments

Last week, I was in the hospital 3 nights, IV drip the whole time. Before I went in, I had two nights of fever at home. Not too high, though I did get over 102 for a short period. Still, didn’t feel like regular flu. Not enough chills, no significant sore throat or coughing. And Dengue has really picked up around here in SE Asia, in Thailand, in Phuket, and - can you believe it? - on Nanai in particular. A broadcast truck apparently swept the neighborhood recently warning everyone - in Thai only, of course - that Nanai is a danger point or something like that.

Feeling much better now, though I am a little bit itchy, which the doctor says is the last stage of the dengue coming out.
