Shay has contracted Typhoid Fever and was in outpatient care since this morning around 9a.m. She was hooked up to IV to get her rehydrated and then given IV - this lasted for 9 hours. This will be followed by oral med. She went home about 7p.m. This came on suddenly at about 3a.m. this morning with vomiting every 20 min. until I took her to doctor at 8:30 this morning. The Dr. is from our church and is excellent. We covet your prayers. Typhoid fever comes from something you ate and can remain dormant for up to 20 days before presenting symptoms. She is already feeling a little better from the first dose of antibiotics.

Praying for Shay's recovery.
Try to eat local yogurt if they have it. That is advice I get from many people who travel to foreign countries. Helps ward off and or lessen food issues.ReplyDelete
