A night in a Thai Hospital

Ugh, just returned from a brief 24 hr sourjourn in the Samitivej Hospital in Bangkok.
I'll write more tomorrow as feeling too feek and weeeble now and need to get horizontal again and get my strength back before we start..in two days.

Nothing serious, just a high fever, the shakes and sweats - viral infection, throat infection and flu apparently?! But my temp is normal now, amazing as I was a human radiator last night - 103 degree temp. Just feel a bit steam rollered now.

More tomorrow - can not believe its two days till D-Day.

Apparently there are floods and mud slides in the north of Laos.
Hope you are not going there.
Also hope you read the comments on your blog otherwise there is not much point.
Be better soon Ants.
Lots of love XXXX

Yes we do read the comments - thanks!

That's a pretty pointless bet Heid_honcho and not the sort of thing we need to hear the day before we leave. We WILL make it.

I'm Thai, keow about your story from my boyfriend, we like to be your block fanculb about the journey to England by Tuk-Tuk, named Ting-Tong, actually you should named it Ting- Tong because it is not good meaning ,you might know the meaning of word, mean like crazy, stupid, idiot ,not normal, I think it's not good sign when you are having the long trip to go, However Fa-rang doesn't care about the meaning of the name, right?
We are looking forward to read your adventure and look luck.

Take care.
