From February 28
My Bible story workshop was canceled. Last night by the time we went to bed, I was sure I had malaria. The first two dose of meds are required to be taken exactly eight hours apart, so I waited until this morning to start the meds. I also woke up with the inside of my left ankle extremely sore and red, just a tiny spot, about the size of a quarter. I stayed in bed all day, bundled in the morning against the chills that were wracking my body, then in the front of the fan in the afternoon as I sweated.
By the end of the day, my malaria meds were kicking in, and I felt much better. However, the red spot on my ankle had spread all the way up my shin and calf, so now we're watching for cellulitis.
