Grrr! This has taken hours to post! I select ‘Publish’ and it rolls around and goes to a blank page.. if I hit the back button, it’s also a blank page. Here’s the fifth or maybe sixth attempt:(Hee-hee, because the ‘update post’ often loses my work, and the publish keeps going AWOL, I outsmarted it and scheduled it to be published six minutes from now!)
Just a quick postscript before I nod off to sleep (again!) –
It would be very insensitive of me to go to sleep without giving an update, as I don’t want anyone to lose sleep while worrying about me!
The day has gone well, and my temperature is lower, today staying around 38 instead of yesterday’s 39. The aching joints are not so bad now, and my grip is stronger than those first days when I could barely shake the thermometer or hold a drinking glass.
My gift for the day was a young egret fledgling – or perhaps an immature blue heron – that was inspecting the Casa Loca gardens at ground level. Not wearing my contact lenses, I could only detect its fuzzy juvenile appearance as it quickly darted for cover. Since my stamina is still horrid, I did not allow it to lead me astray. Perhaps tomorrow if I’m stronger I’ll do my own garden inspection and see if there’s a new squatter in the neighborhood!
Good night, everyone, and thank you so much for the outpouring of love! I should sleep all night with zero problems, and hope to awaken feeling much much stronger!

Lisa, so glad to hear you are improving. Nothing worse than being sick! Is this your first time with Dengue? I’ve heard it is terrible.

15 years ago i think i had dengue; i was sick for 2 weeks and another 2 weeks to get stronger. no tests were done, so who knows. it didn’t show on the tests this past week, so i don’t know if theyd have to have tested for that one particular strain or if all 5 have the same markers.. i’m much better now, thank goodness..
I’m so glad you are better! Being sick is the very worst! I had a crazy virus a month ago that kept me in bed and ill for two weeks! It was horrible. So I am happy you are doing much better now Lisa!
Every year the mosquitoes here in Canada seem to get bigger and their sting sharper. When I lived in a house by the river I would fill the deck with citronella plants and rub the leaves over my bare skin to keep the mosquitoes at bay. It seemed to work!

One surprise about moving to Latin America was the lack of mosquitoes.. Unless it’s the first hour of the day or the last one, there are rarely any mosquitoes.. One does not need a screened porch in order to sit outside.. but the problem is that it only takes one infected mosquito to ruin the next few months of your life!
