Diarrhoea uh-uh

Oh dear, Ben's sick. It was bound to happen sooner or later I suppose.

It started last night with aching limbs (Dengue Fever? Bird Flu?), followed by diarrhoea, sickness, and a fever of 38.8 (woah momma!) so we're pretty sure he has what we've come to think of as the Chiang Mai downstairs mix-up (traveler's diarrhoea). Bummer.

I've given him a couple of Norfloxacin tablets and a Loperamide, and I think he's getting better. His temperature is now 37.5, but he still has all the other symptoms. Thankfully, I have a traveler's health guide with step-by-step instructions on what to do; a well stocked first aid kit; and an lovely Aunt who's a nurse, dispensing advice via text message - so he's in good hands.

Poor Ben.

Debs, x
