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.
WHO LOOKED AFTER ME?
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.

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.
You are a very lucky man to have the Cat's mother. Feel better soon Keesie.
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.

quit lying around dying and get back to blogging, hope you feel better soon
Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery.
oh, Keesie! Take care of your self and tell Cat's Mother we said thanks for looking after you. I hear popsicles always make you feel better.

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.
