Prayers for health...

Tyson has been sick the last 4 days and we went to the clinic yesterday and he has Dengue fever. It is from insect bites and there is really nothing we can do about it. He is taking Tylenol for his fever, resting and taking in lots of liquids but other than that there is no medicine to give him. Kai has been a little sick too with a fever and cough and we are not sure if it is the same thing but he still seems to have lots of energy and is eating and drinking well, and since there is nothing we can do for it anyway we are holding off on taking him to the doctor. All that to ask for your prayers. It was a little scarier when they first told us but now we realize that it is somewhat common here and not life threatening...he just needs to rest. There is a more severe form of it (in case you read up on the Internet) that causes bleeding and it more dangerous but that is not what he had:) Please keep both and he Kai in your prayers and as well as the continued health of the rest of our team. We now know that this is a concern here and will be very diligent about the bug repelent. Thank you all so much for your prayers and we will be in touch when we can!
