Health update:  Yes I’ve been sick and here is what happened, how I treated it, and my recommendations to you J

  1. Friday the 21st of August I woke up with a non-itchy rash on my torso and a fever of 102.  Via WhatsApp I messaged the bilingual Dr. Dennis (+505-8434-2099) at the pharmacy across from the church with my symptoms and a video of the rash.  He told me what tests to get at the laboratory here in town.

 

  1. Laboratorio Clinco Nicaraguensa is a private lab, on the one-way street leaving town (4th street from the beach) just past the end of the parking lot of Royal Chateau Hotel (2224-5013 office, WhatsApp +505-7559-0104 or +505-5818-7664).  The tests aren’t free but they are very inexpensive, around $25. The lab sent me the results via WhatsApp in about 2 hours which I forwarded to Dr. Dennis and a doctor friend of mine in the states who confirmed all of his various findings and decisions throughout my illness.

 

 

  1. Dennis determined I had an allergic reaction to something.  He prescribed some medicine but my fever would go right back up to 102 when the Tylenol was wearing off.  I didn’t get a Covid test, but Dr. Dennis confirmed I didn’t have it. He said if I did, there were two things in my blood work that would have been elevated but they were at normal levels.   I didn’t work as I couldn’t focus on anything with a clear head, couldn’t read, didn’t look at Facebook, just slept A LOT and watched mindless movies on Netflix.

 

  1. Sunday afternoon I was super weak, dizzy, super thirsty, walked like a drunk but hadn’t drank a drop of alcohol since Thursday night; felt absolutely awful so…..Monday morning before eating, I went back to the lab with a poop and urine sample to check for parasites, had my sugar and cholesterol levels checked, and the lab also recommended a bacteria test based on my symptoms plus some other blood work.  This cost about $45 and they sent me the results via WhatsApp in about 2 hours which I forwarded to both doctors.

 

  1. The tests confirmed I had Amoeba (protozoarios), a nasty bugger of a parasite, and H. Pylori bacteria, a stomach bacteria that can cause ulcers.  Now I know why I was experiencing more frequent indigestion over the past 2 months!    And I also had a dry cough and major brain fog which can be caused by a parasite infection, not Covid as I was worried about! Monday late morning Dr. Dennis prescribed 2 antibiotics for the bacteria, 1 for the parasite, plus 1 pill to protect my stomach for 10 days.  4 pills 2 times per day 9 am and 9 pm.  These were super strong and made me very ill, unfocused, and sleepy!

 

  1. 4 days into the 10 day treatment on Thursday morning I was super dizzy and almost passed out on the toilet with cold sweats.  Dr. Dennis recommended checking my liver function so…..back to the lab for my third blood test in a 6 days. L  This set of tests was around $55 because of the liver function tests.

 

  1. Liver function came back abnormal and Dr. Dennis recommended I get an ultrasound on my liver first thing Friday morning, one week from the first problem. The ultrasound and radiologia lab is in Rivas, turn left at the first gas station in Rivas and it is immediately on the right, Dr. Milton Zapata Jerez.  2563-4627 office or 8512-1755 Claro or 8688-3802 Tigo – no appointment needed, first come first served.  Cost 500 cords or $14.50 for the liver ultrasound.  So inexpensive I also got my breasts checked for an additional 500 cords since I won’t get a mammogram!   Thankfully boobs are all good J

 

  1. Ultrasound showed an abscess in my liver from the parasites.   So……I started eating foods to help restore my liver and continued to take the medicine and tolerated the side effects of the meds which also included pooping A LOT!  Seriously I couldn’t figure out where it was all coming from!

 

  1. Thursday, 13 days after the start of all this, was my first medicine free day and first full day in the office. While on the meds at most I could do about an hour a day before feeling like I was going to fall off my chair!

 

  1. I’ll get follow up tests this week, will continue to stay off the alcohol, and continue to eat 5-6 small meals a day until I know my liver is healed!  So far I’ve paid Dr. Dennis 500 cords, $14,50 but I’m sure I owe him another 500 cords for his continued support and checking in on me.

 

  1. My advice to you no matter where you live, parasites are everywhere, get your poop checked for parasites every 6 months in Nicaragua and probably yearly in other places!  Drink a coconut water every day, this was something I got out of the habit of doing when I laid off my maid in March because of Covid.  Years before I had parasites and I’ve been drinking coconut water almost daily since without any infections until I laid off my maid. L   Check out this website for more information on parasites and how to prevent them naturally https://theberkey.com/blogs/water-filter/parasites-in-drinking-water-and-how-to-remove-them#:~:text=You%20can%20eat%20fresh%20pomegranates,your%20body%20free%20from%20parasites.&text=Coconut%20water%20can%20kill%20parasites,coconut%20will%20also%20kill%20parasites.

The first one actually made me cry – Best Pats on the Back Yet!

Our team helps with everything; it isn’t just all me!

We worked with Walter at Expat Car solutions to find the exact right car which is our Landcruiser Safari. When we managed to find one in SJDS, even though he was in Managua, he came into town and viewed the car/inspected and then met us to talk us through the process of purchasing a vehicle here in Nicaragua.

If you’re moving to Nicaragua and need a reliable vehicle serviced by one of the most knowledgeable mechanics in the country – I implore you to work with Walter, he’s an incredible wealth of information, patient and has a great sense of humor. https://www.facebook.com/expatcarsolutions

The reason we “found” Walter is because of

Natalie Sullivan

– real estate agent extraordinaire (and now beloved friend) who took the time to introduce us to SO many helpful businesses and people. She actually introduced us to the seller of our new vehicle as well as the exceptional engineer

Ricardo Vargas

who will be breaking ground on our beautiful home soon. His work so far has been nothing short of professional, timely and detailed.  https://www.facebook.com/Constructora.Vargas.Nicaragua

If you’re looking to make a big life change by moving to paradise I can’t tell you enough how easy Natalie has made the purchase of our property, temporary rental home, orientation of a new life and finding all the resources we need to settle in.

Moving to another country can be scary, but when a fellow North American has managed to live and love her life down here in Nicaragua for 15 years, most of your fears can be easily quelled by knowing how much she loves her life.

Natalie is NOT a realtor, she’s like a fairy godmother who helps you to weave a dream that sometimes is super overwhelming. You have NO idea what kind of concierge service a real estate agent can bring to the table until you meet her. Stardust!

Feeling incredibly grateful today for all of the fantastic people we’ve had the pleasure of befriending here in Nica in the last 18 days. It really speaks volumes when a person with honesty and integrity lends you their contacts…..class all the way with all these folks.

Sasha & Jeff

Good job Natalie for keeping up with your messages despite the challenges for the tourist industry.

You give everyone a great example of resilience and perseverance.

Hector

I love your reports and I think you’re doing a great job for your clients and the people of Nicaragua… You are an upbeat ambassador of good will…!!!

I myself am Right side (Corn Islands) at the time being…love visiting San Juan del Sur. And will be returning to Nicaragua when it’s permitted…

Would like to make an appointment to talk when the time is right. Keep your passion going it inspires all of us …

Cheers, James

I enjoy your emails.  Thanks for your service to the community.

Aloha, Eric
