Sick With Dengue Fever :-(

There are a few weeks when I get to the computer and am SO excited to write home because I have so many things I want to tell you all.  I am a little sorry to say that this week, it is pretty obvious what I will write, and has not been a tough decision given that there is only 1 thing to write about.  During the baptism of Dario and Luis last week, I started to feel a bit weak.  I thought nothing of it, because I though I was just tired.  So I shrugged it off and went to church the next day.  Unfortunately, it was getting worse and I had to take the day off again.  On P-day, we also spent the whole day resting (that's why I didn't write on Monday last week.  Sorry.)  I felt that it had to get better eventually, but on Tuesday, it was still really bad.  So we went to the doctor.  Unfortunately, I found out that I have Dengue.  (okay, let's take a break really quick before my mom passes out...).........

This is Taylor's Dad:

The last sentence of Taylor's letter was meant to encourage his Mom (and I :-) ) not to overreact to the news of him having Dengue Fever.  He obviously had intended to send us another e-mail with more information about his condition (he actually said he would write again in 30 minutes) but we never received his other e-mail.  So, at this point, all we know is that Taylor is pretty sick.  We have been informed that about 25 of the missionaries serving in the Posadas Argentina mission have come down with Dengue Fever.  It can be a very bad illness, causing miserable symptoms similar to the flu virus, but we have hope that Taylor is on the mend now.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.  Hopefully, when we hear from him next, he will be feeling much better.

 I don't know anything about the picture below (when it was taken, where they are or anything else), but Taylor looks happy and healthy in this picture.
