    Well, we got back from holiday and about 4-5 days after our return my SO was complaining of being tired and sore all over. I told him he was working too hard and made him go to bed early. Two days later he showed me a large swelling in his groin, concerned, I asked him to go to the doctor. He eventually went yesterday.

    He has tick bite fever. He is really not well. I insisted that he move in with me so that I could watch him. He has high tempreatures, followed by cold shivers. Massive headaces and neck pain. His groin really hurts where all the glands have swollen up. My poor baby is pale and so tired he can barely stand up.

    So please spare a thought for him. (and for me who is looking after him)

    Oh, how awful for him, and for you! Is this something for which there is a cure or does he just have to get over it over time? Give him a big (but gentle hug) for me and tell him I hope he gets well soon.

    Thanks all. He is on the antibiotic cyclidox, it helps with any secondary bacterial infection which may occur. He is also on heavy pain meds which make him drowsy. You all must remember that he was bitten by an African tick. Nothing shy about the lurgies here.
    He should get over it in about 3 weeks. So I have him on strict bed rest and lots of home cooking with a dash of love.

    SS, I am sure he feels that healing right about now. It is a privilage to get free treatment from a propper healer!

    Ticks are highly dangerous ....

    They can be buggers to get rid of.
    I really hope he gets well soon ( its lucky it was only a bite :) )
    With a cool gal looking after him and nursing him back to health im sure he will be back up and causing havoc in no time :p

    Best wishes to both of you. :)

    I doubt him moving in with me will be permenant. He has just bought a house. LOL! Besides, I am not sure that 3 people in a two bedroom apartment would work! LOL!
    He is heading home today, I am going there tonight to help clean up for his party and bake his cake.

    He really has started to SS. He is being a sweetie of late. Ever since I threatened to chuck his ass if he didn't pull up his socks.
