Our Little Gigi has Typhoid

I got this email from Melissa who is in Haiti right now.

Gigi is sick and she has typhoid. We checked her this morning. She is doing a lot better this afternoon. Magdala put an IV in and she doesn’t seem to be throwing up as much. Last night she had a pretty high fever. There were four of us trying to get her to take some ibuprofen –  to get her fever down –  and she still got a foot loose and kicked me in the jaw 🙂 I will start her on rocephin shots, which i am sure she will love, but hopefully she will get better quick.

As I just mentioned earlier – Jose is planning to go get her next week. We hate it that one of us is not with her right now while she’s suffering. Rosie got typhoid last year. So please – those of you traveling to Haiti – get your typhoid shot. 

We’re very fortunate to have Melissa in Haiti right now. Please keep our little Gigi in your prayers. It’s hard not to worry about her.

  1. My prayers are with you all and her – I can only imagine how hard it is to know Gigi is sick and you can’t be with her.
