It's my birthday !

I am celebrating my 22nd birthday for the 22nd time!

I wish every lurker would leave me a note!

That would make my day!






Also, I have had a head ache, sore joints, fever for a few days and yesterday developed a rash as well.

Headed to the doctor this afternoon, as now my throat glands are also swollen. At first, I thought it might be dengue but I have had it before and this feels different.



The most comments I have ever had is 87.
I would love to break that record today!
Come on and help me do it!!

Happy day for you my dear! and get well soon. (the rash makes me think you've got intoxicated with something)

Jungle Mom said...

Liz, I think you may be right. yesterday a Paraguayan friend made me some guayaba leaf tea for my throat. Being a dumb gringa, I drank it. Then she informed me I was only supposed to gargle with it! Maybe that caused the rash?

Ken, Christie, Camille, Caroline said...

Ugh. Does sound dengue-like. Keep us posted. Prayers and well-wishes coming your way for a spectacular birthday. You sure deserve a non-eventful one full of health and happiness and a visit from those cute little grandbabies. Enjoy it!

Happy Birthday Rita!!!

May the clouds be perfect white
In a sky of perfect blue
And may you remember this :
How much God loves you...


I thought I recognized another fellow Aquarian...

have a beautiful day !

Warren said...

OK, I admit to being a lurker. I have your blog bookmarked and one of the few I regularly visit. I share your pain and outrage at the things which have happened and are happening in your and our second homeland. Visit our blog to rejoice with us in the seminary work going on in La Piedad, wwwlvenezuelaforchrist.blogspot.com. I hope you feel better today and thank you for your faithful witness. By the way, our friends are enjoying living in "our" house in Cabudare. Renovations continue and you would be delighted to see the improvements and updates. Blessings, Warren

Michael said...

22 again, huh?
I guess you didn't believe in teenage pregnancy.

Happy Birthday to you, and many happy more.

firepig said...

Jm,

as for your rash with fever, maybe you should go directly to a doctor.I doubt it is Dengue as Dengue usually floors people....did you check for tics? Do you have rheumatic disease ?

Anyway, please go to the doctor.

Jungle Mom said...

Firepig,
My fever is down and, like you say, I doubt it is dengue because, I am mostly coherent! Well, as much as ever. I called my doctor and will be seeing him this afternoon or sooner if things change. I do feel weak and only have energy to lie here with my laptop to bug you all!!!
My husband had a great birthday planned for me, but I just can't do any of it.
I'll let you know what the doctor says when I get back.

BTW, My husband has a birthday next week. We are an elite club of people!

Leah said...

Happy Birthday to you !!!!! I hope you get to eat something really yummy.

Thursday's Child said...

Oh, well, have a double birthday celebration. DH's birthday is a few days before our anniversary so we've been known to do it.

Happy Birthday, JM! Take care of yourself or else!

Soul Skittles said...

:D Happy birthday! I can comment multiple times if you want me to. :D

happy dengue birthday! LOL

Liz said...

Hmm, Guayaba tea... I remember my mother in law using it, but I think she bathe with it!

Anyhow, go to the doc! maybe you have one 'eruptiva'. Don't know the names in english: sarampion, lechina, rubeola, roseola, escarlatina. Keep us posted.

Jane said...

Well, I have already wished you a HB AND sent a card but I want you to get LOTS of comments...so here I am.

I also want to answer your question about Nancy Pelosi. Yes, she said that in 2006!!! What an arrogant woman. Amazing!

Linds said...

Happy birthday! I hope you are having a wonderful day and are being spoiled rotten!

firepig said...

well Rita, I am off to DC to visit for a few days.I will be checking your blog from my son's house to see how your birthday went and how you are feeling.

Sarah Joy said...

The Hermit said...

That sounds pretty nasty. I hope you get better soon. Seems like you have had a lot of health trouble since you got down there. You don't suppose the water is bad or something like that do you?

The Chambers Family said...

Happy Birthday, JM, from your ¨lurker¨ in San Salvador, El Salvador. I married a hot latino and moved out of the US nine years ago. Never commented before, but am tremendously inspired by your blog. Someday, I´ll write you a long letter. Would love to have your e-mail address. How I found you? I grew up with J. ... and check his blog frequently and found another C&MA blogger in PY and found you, too, about a year ago, after being directed to yet another blog (pastor´s wife with two adorable small children )who wrote a testimony about neighbor Leti´s salvation. God bless you and your beautiful and amazing family. Rebecca Mendez

Most Rev. Gregori said...

Well Happy 22nd for the 22nd time.and may you 22 more 22 more times.

Hope your discomfort was nothing serious.

Joy in the Burbs... said...

I don't know what dengue is but I hope you don't have it. Sorry your feeling puny on your birthday.

Happy Birthday!

87 comments? That's a lot! I'm adding my two cents' worth. Happy Birthday!

I hope you're feeling better!

AZ from Arizona said...

I was cruising the Internet using the "NEXT" button, saw your plea for comments, though to myself "WHY NOT!" So have a great evening (what's left of it)!

MaMa Vaughn said...

MightyMom said...

OK, so I had to go from your blog to another HS kiddo's to another's to find your Verja Bunny!! where'd she go??!!

There is a family (with TEN kids...I'm in awe) of homeschoolers and the kids are starting a blog wanting to network. I left Ms Verja a comment and figured I'd leave you one here so you'd know what I (the michievious one) was up to!

here's the linky to their Mom's explanation.

Happy 22nd for the 22nd time from a "lurker" in Caraguatatuba Brazil. (Litoral de São Paulo).

Thanks for the posts and all. It is a real encouragement to read your blog.

I pray that what you have is simple and easy to treat!

Tammy said...

Oh man, I totally missed this. Belated Happy BIrthday, Rita!

That "would it kill ya to comment" button is TOO cute. Where did you get that??

Happy Belated 22nd Birthday!!!

Charles said...

Happy Birthday. I posted a blog ( actually 2 ) about your special day.

I am sorry you had to be sick on such a great day. I hope that as soon as you feel better you can celebrate in style.

The Localmalcontent said...

Whoops, better late than never...

I wish you a very, very happy Birthday, JMom, and also a speedy recovery from the virus.

You have surely indeed become so special to me, in 1-1/2 years of knowing, reading, and loving you and your family, your service to God's Children in South America.

Sorry that this is late- Internet disruption here.
But our very best wishes to you on your special day, with hopes of many more~!
We hope that you are surrounded by love and adoration from your wonderful children and from Clint, as well as hope you feel the affections of all your many friends abroad, via the Internet.

You have made a positive, spiritual difference in our lives, Rita, and we ask God to bless you and Clint every night.

MightyMom said...

by the way, I wanted to congratulate you...

you look GREAT for being 484years old!! how did you live so very long and keep your looks??

wow. I hope I make it to 484. But I have a ways to go.

what? you SAID you'd been 22, 22 times. that makes you 484.

:-)

Z said...

you feeling better?
Hope so!!

Sarah Halter said...

Didn't you just have a birthday and we marked ourselves on a map? Either it was something else, or I've been reading your blog longer than I thought and the last year just flew by! Happy Birthday!

Hope the virus passes quickly.

Happy Birthday from the farm kids Second Third and Fourth...

Happy Birthday from First(Bill) in Maryland for advanced training!

Humble wife said...

Happy Birthday from the chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, sheep(and lambs) goats(and kids) dog, cats and any unknown critters that reside on the Farm!

They are suggesting that you eat PIG or become a vegetarian. The rest of us suggest the Turkey...as heritage turkeys are YUMMY. So skip the pig...and some day perhaps the farm will host the Jungle family a delicious dinner with home grown foods and fresh free range meat!

I am sure that you reached your goal.

Feel better!
Jennifer

Gringo said...

Perhaps not in a single day, but if you had left that Islam post up, that would have eventually exceeded the record # of comments. It definitely took the record for # of words devoted to comments.

Jungle Mom said...

Gringo, I hated to take it down but for reasons I can't explain here publicly, it needed to come down. I wish I could share it all with you, but am unable to do so in this format.
