I got Fever!

Alas, I'd been warning visiting friends about the recent epidemic of dengue fever, only to find myself down with something that looked like it, tasted like it and felt like it, but did not conform to the usual diagnostic tests for it. After two days of being bedridden with fever and chills, and completely lacking in energy, I staggered into my doctor's office where she promptly admitted me to the hospital. Continual hydration and bedrest for four days brought me back from the brink, but it has put a real crimp in my plans for the festive season. This will be a Christmas to remember! Not!

Contrary to the cliche, the food here was quite good!
