I was back to the clinic yesterday when Noah suddenly spiked a high fever out of the blue (almost 102F or 39C). Fearing malaria or dengue fever (so soon? really?!), I rushed him over. The check-in nurse said, "You come here a lot." Yes. Thanks. I'm aware of that.
Luckily not malaria or dengue...he has a bacterial infection in his throat and ears. Not that this is great or anything, but slightly less scary. And so he now he is on antibiotics; he didn't have a great night with the fever going up and down. I am left wondering...is this how living in Dar for the next three years is going to be? Someone on antibiotics every other week?! Please, NO!
