From Brenda Zarska:
Curtis returned to the States September 20, 2019, after spending 3 months in NW Kenya. He planned to go back to Kitale, Kenya in 2 weeks. He is still planning to return for another 3 months but he will be delayed for a week or two, if all goes well.
He was admitted to the hospital 10 days later after his health deteriorated. Symptoms: fever 103.7, pustules spreading on body (felt like glass shards), swollen feet, burning sensation in hands (very hot to the touch), in & out of consciousness, inflamed throat (even water burned).
He is under the care of Dr. Seeber, who has been his primary care physician for many years.
I spent an hour with him Sabbath afternoon. Until a diagnosis has been reached, gown/mask/gloves must be worn by all who enter his ICU room.
His pain is being managed, testing is ongoing, and he is sleeping most of the time. His appetite seems normal. I expect to know something by Monday.
Thank you for your prayers and good wishes!
