25 September 2007



I have been lying arround for the last week feeling like shit and almost dying.

The bite, the fever, 3 hours at 39.5 C (103.1 F ), the quinine kicking in, 2 days of extreme heat and dryness, liters and liters of drips, slowly taking in water, slowly rehydrating slowly recovering etc.


I love her so much
The Cat’s Mother, that is, all hail
My beautiful wife and friend


Also my biggest thank's and appreciation the the Doctors and staff at the Chingola Hospital.




I'm so sorry I'm late in giving you my most heartfelt "feel betters"! Holy crap. Be well. This sucks.

Malaria? Why, that's almost as bad as Mogo on the Gogogo! Hope you have a speedy and complete recovery, Keesie. This is not one of those Fun Diseases...except you can drink Gin and Tonic all day long and say it's medicine.

They've got a hospital in Chingola, now? Wow, when I was in Solwezi, the nearest hospital was in Kitwe (or was it Ndola?). Anyway at least 30 miles further away.Get well soon, Kees.

I spent enough time in SE Asia that I reckon I should have come down with it but I reckon them damn quinine pills I had to take evey morning just kept it at bay.Wishing you a speedy recovery and all hale and well soon.

My uncle got that in Burma during WWII; he used to get flare-ups every summer for the rest of his life, even 60 years later.

Eish! I was wondering why you were so quite... Hope you have a good recovery and no relapses. It is a horrid bug.
