Autumn's Malaria Hospital Visit

Organized by: Autumn Elliott

THE STORY:

Autumn got bad luck and a wildly bad case of malaria that had her in the hospital for a week and bed rest for 2 more. Unfortunately, within weeks of getting malaria tested, she got super unlucky to get bitten by an infected mosquito. Without our recent luck, malaria didn't seem possible, but the amount of time pondering was enough to cause kidney and liver damage.

After being admitted, we were told her stay would be 2 days. The malaria was cured in two days! She was not. :( After1 week, we were told the hospital's intention was 3 weeks bedside treatment... About $6500 total of treatment.

Autumn is now at home on bed rest with her medications, but also $2400 in bills. She's lethargic but doing much better than in the hospital bed. Also, for funsies, the illness has her retain 11 kilos (about 25 lbs!) of fluids in a day, and its all just floating around her like a wobbly jellytube. So she's buying fat clothes and oversized sandals until she pees all that out.
