Well its been a scarey few days here.
Lee came down with this sudden flu like illness, it got that bad i made him go to hospital. Good job as well,turned out he has dengue fever and spent three days in hospital on a drip.
He is home now but suffering quite badly. Dengue fever is also known as breakbone disease because you are in that much pain you feel like all your bones are broken. Lee is going through that stage now. Its awful to see and nothing can be done other than lots of fluid and pain killers.
The doctor told me to look out for a rash appearing and to rush him in to emergency if this was the case.
He said there can be complications and 3 out of 100 die from it
Anyway, it is caused by being bitten by a mosquito who has already bitten someone infected with Dengue. They live in cities, bight in the daytime and are fond of entering dwellings.
There is no cure and the only preventitive is repellent and covering up head to toe.
It seems to be getting more common around the world, so guys.......
get some deet on if you are in an area where there are mosquitos.
Id hate anyone else to go through this.
