House, er, Hostal Call

Just before lunch time, Julien’s medication wore off and he was seized by chills again. The very kind hotel staff at San Blas Hostal let me make him a soup and, at my request, called a doctor to come check on him. We had planned to go to the clinic, but it was raining the proverbial cats and dogs, and I just couldn’t see J having to go out in that, endure a taxi ride, and then wait only the saints know how long until a doctor finally got around to seeing him.

Doctor’s verdict: The flu. The normal, seasonal kind, but one that is coupled with a gastrointestinal infection.

In regards to my case, he says the diarrhea’s cause is likely parasitic to have lasted so long, and he prescribed me meds, too.

We’re hoping that Julien will kick his fever enough to allow us to go to Machu Picchu. It may seem a frivolous thing, but I ask, if you’re willing, that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

As kmkibble75 said in comment to my last post, we must have wronged Peru somehow for all this to be befalling us here. *sigh*

thanks, PeeJ.

I actually need to go check on my poor baby.

The meds seem to be having good effect on me already.

Positive thoughts are hurling your way from up north.

PS. The Peruvian gods do seem to enjoy a bit of blood sacrifice...maybe squash a few bugs in their honour?

hehe. Yes, bugs. That would be good. There for a moment, I thought you would suggest someone else's blood...

Er, and Julien says, "What? A bug? Am I not worth another human life???"

Um... who did I marry? :-S

Considering that when you visited, the two of you were openly trying to think of how to dispose my body after you'd killed me, I'm not surprised at all. ;)

I repeat that you are the only one who has any memory of that conversation. I think you were hallucinating. :P
