Florence won't probably get to answer these questions for a while she has a fever, possibly a heavy influenza that is going around Japan. It wiped out Michael with a high fever for four days. We can all use your prayers. Thanks

Poor Florence! Will pray for her.
We have/had a bit of something too. Trav was sick for quite a few days with an off and on tummy buggish-fever, sometimes pretty high. I had a one day stomach upheaval as well.
Tell Flo I love her.

I used to think it was normal to get sick as much as I did in Japan. I used to have fevers, athsma, flues, etc, so regularly there. But I have hardly been sick in the last four years since I moved here. Something about Japan, I tell ya. Water, air? Don't know, but it's not good.

Feel better soon, Flo.

maybe it's because Japan is so crowded that you can't help but come in contact with so many people when you go outside.

They were pointless, random, and foolish.
Not important enough to struggle for.
It's saved as a draft though...
41.9 !!!

Allow me to bring that number into perspective for you.

Remember the story Berg told about when he was in the army and working KP, he walked out all sweaty and hot into the freezing winter snow, and later came down with a fever of 104F? If I recall, he had that high fever for a few days and later remarked that he should have died. Etc. That story gave me my only fahrenheit point of reference. Feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken on the details of that story. My focus has shifted somewhat.

But of course, when I was in Japan, getting fever after fever, sometimes up to 42C, I had no idea how high that was in F.

42 degree Celsius = 107.6 degree Fahrenheit!

Here in the US, doctors tell you to get yourself to the hospital if you have a fever of 102F. I'm quite confident any doctor in Japan would say something similar. A fever of 104F is considered a very serious thing. Having a fever of nearly 108F for three or four days? Just plain insane.

When my temperature was that high, I used to have strange dizzy experiences, which I can't really call out of body experiences, but they were somewhere in that zone. I don't remember ever hellucinating per se', but I do remember getting all caught up in my head, while neurons popped and died in my brain. I might as well have dropped acid.

Point is, a temperature of 41.9C is very VERY serious business! That's around 107.4.

I'm just glad you're alright now.

Florence is in recovery, the high fever is gone, only her ear and sinusitis problem is left. This influenza is really something. They say it is really strong and flourishing because of the very strange warm winter we are having. It is February and so warm that some of the trees are blossoming. We gave Flo tylenol for the fever but it only brought it down to 39.9. The children seem to get it a bit lighter than the older people. Michael is much better. Dad and I are left out of the 20 of us, 4 survivors. We have been doing everything we can to boost our immune systems, and praying. So, far so good.
