It is not every day that you say, “Good news, I have a parasite!!”

Since January, Wife M has not been feeling well.  She has been pale, exhausted, had stomach pains and — most especially — had a daily fever between 99.5 and 100.5.  The days when she is at 99.5 she just seems more tired than ususal; they days at 100.5 she is a shadow of her self: pale, rosy cheeked and exhausted.  She has been going to various doctors for months trying to figure it out, and had to cancel her MCAT exam because she is so exhausted.  We’ve been nervous that it could be a slow growing cancer or autoimmune disease (her doctor said fever is a sign of cancer, autoimmune disease, and infectious disease; also, some cancers are difficult to find/diagnose).   This week she saw the infectious disease specialist, and she may have came back positive for a parasite that is easily treatable.  What a relief that woudl be!  It is not every day you say, “Good news, I have a parasite!!”
