gee-are-DI-uh-sis

Giardiasis is a parasitic infection of the small intestine. It's a protozoa.
This is what ails Jonah. So weird. And relieving. So after 5 days of medication, he should be back to full health, God grant.
We were envisioning a much more complicated and dire diagnosis.
We're glad it's not. I just wish I knew how he caught it (and the other kids didn't). I read some stuff about it, and it sounds yucky, kinda like getting lice. Oh well. I'm thankful my boy is going to be healthy again!

Oh! That is good news, and relieving. Five days!
Meanwhile, we will still keep Jonah in our prayers.

Glory to God...!
So Victoria, it seems what my mother told me when I was a kid, "eat some dirt it'll make you strong," isn't really something to literally follow through with?.. :-)
We are really relieved to hear that Jonah is on his way to recovery.

thank God! I mean, it is what my parents always warned me against when I drank water from mountain streams, I don't envy him though. isn't the colloquial name for it beaver fever?
whatever the case, we are all very happy that he will be well shortly. Glory to God!

I too, am very glad to hear this news... not quite sure who in my household posted the first comment. The perils of not logging out properly... but regardless, the most important thing is that Jonah, the man is on his way back to a clean bill of health. Glory to God.

Glory to God! I was praying hard for him, please do pass on my regards to him. How relieving to know it's nothing more serious.
