For the past three weeks we have been battling high fevers, swollen and inflamed eyes, coughs, and rashes, which we diagnosed as Measles. Altogether 30 of our children were affected, some more severe than others.
Fortunately we have had Caroline Broissand here from England to oversee the treatment and care of the children. She is a Registered Nurse and is volunteering with us for a month.
A couple of days ago the Public Health Department found out about it and so they came to check us out. They gave everyone a capsule of Vitamin A and recorded their temperatures. That part was easy …
But than came the test for the H1N1 Flu Virus.
It will be about a month before we get the results back… hopefully the Virus, what ever it is, will be only a bad memory by that time.
