Okay, to continue on with yesterday’s theme…I’m freakin’ tired!
Chris started feeling “off” a couple days ago. It’s malaria. He’s taking chloroquine. It doesn’t seem to be helping all that much. We’re thinking that he’s built up a bit of a resistance to it but maybe this round is just taking longer.
Chris doesn’t react well to chloroquine. He does better with another drug, but after a visit to the hospital pharmacy down the road we turned up with nothing. There’s a chance he could get some Quinine today. We’ll see.
Sleeping with someone who has a fever, who gets up in the middle of the night because he can’t sleep, and who has crazy dreams is not good for this already exhausted, over tired, and cranky girl. I have the hardest time being compassionate when I’m sleep deprived. I’ve always been an 8 hour a night girl.
Our guests are being wonderful and told us at breakfast that they’ve made the executive decision that they’re going to be low maintenance today. They’ll keep themselves occupied with painting some filters, going for a walk in the neighborhood and just chilling out. They are such a blessing to us!
I’ve had my chance to whine now. I’m going to go clean up the breakfast stuff, attack my final “to do” list to get things ready for Mom and Dad, then I’m going to go take care of myself a bit and have a nap.
Please keep us in your prayers over the next couple days as we try to switch gears and deal with Malaria Boy.
