A small change in plans. We’re going to wait until after Chinese New Year to move to Singapore. With lots of shops and offices being closed for several days and with lots more crowds in the streets and on the metro and…with me getting over a bout of food poisoning….it just seemed better to wait until the end of January to move. Monday late afternoon I ate an apple and not long after that I started to get really sick. I won’t go into details since I’m sure you can guess. Luckily, a few days before, we got to know the folks on Reeflections II, Robin and Ian. Robin is a nurse. So I asked Randal to go get her Monday night. Just having her come onto the boat made me feel better. I was huddled under the covers with the chills having no clue that was coming from a fever. She made me take Panadol and then brought some 1000 Plus which is similar to Gatorade. We were all out of Gatorade but when we get more, some will be stored with the medical supplies. I had a few awful bouts of sick during the night but the fever broke. Robin came back the next morning to check too which again made me feel better. Tuesday I felt better if I stayed laying down and took a compazine pill fairly often, though I still couldn’t eat anything. Today I can walk and talk and had some toast and tea, but I have no desire to do much. I had needed to lose a few of the pounds that I had gained here, but that wasn’t the way I had in mind. I have eaten apples here for several months so I don’t know why I had the problem Monday or if it really was the apple. But today I feel lots better though think rest rather than a bike ride will be the order of the day though the weather is beautiful.
So that’s it from here.
