Two posts in a single day, what do you know? Karen just couldn't stand all the sympathy and prayers I was getting, so she came down with malaria, too. She stopped taking her anti-malaria medication about a month ago because of the side effects. The government people and reporters didn't come on Monday because Karen was sick. They plan to return tomorrow afternoon, but she still won't be able to be with them. We had a doctor and lab tech come to the house to examine her and run tests. The doctor came back later bringing the medication and said he'd check back in tomorrow to see how she's doing. He gave us his cell phone and home phone numbers in case she gets worse, but he was pretty sure she'd get better in a couple of days. Her case wasn't as bad as mine, but there is no such thing as a "good" case of malaria.
