Tuesday I felt a little better by the end of the day. That said I still don't feel fully recovered. I am still weak.. Even Friday in the car on the way home I was feeling very nauseated. I guess I'll avoid salads after all...

Before our weekend excursion to Nagarhole National Park, we went to visit our doctor group. They were suggesting that I loosen up a bit. Let my kids eat more foods out. "It will be good for them in the long run, the more germs they are exposed to the stronger and healthier they will be." Okay, so in the back of my mind I keep playing that conversation over and over again in my head. I remembered my husband saying that at the resorts proper precautions are taken to keep foreigners healthy. At the rustic resort Ansel was eating raw fruits and I thought, hmm, maybe I'll try a salad. Let's jump right in. I felt fine the whole time we were there and then driving home my stomach was in knots. I knew diarrhea was on its way. We got home and I was pretty sick. At 3am on Monday I woke up with a fever. We called the doctor and he said it sounds like a "welcome to India" sickness. He recommended antibiotics, probiotics, fever reducer, 2.5 L of fluid, and lots of rest. I was pretty miserable as it was, and then came nausea. The intensity of the nausea was increasing. I was sure I was going to die, and then I vomited. I felt 10 times better. I called the doctor and he told me to take anti-nausea pills. The main concern was that I could keep the medicines down. The nausea medicine took the edge off but I was still pretty nauseated. All I wanted to do was sleep. I ate nothing but a yogurt from Sunday night to Monday night.
