"Within two days I started to get fevers as high as 106
degrees"...After Monahan's return from Mexico City, life
consisted of hours of fever followed by chills - and
intense pain. "My lower back felt like a truck slammed
into it and I found that a malaria headache is the most
excruciating pain you can imagine." Her New Jersey
doctor allowed the malaria to persist untreated for five
weeks. During that time she logged 130 "fever hours,"
when her temperature exceeded 101 degrees. She vomited
constantly, lost 40 lb. and required intravenous fluids
to compensate for dehydration. "We went until my body
couldn't take it anymore," she recalled, "and then I
took the antimalarial drug"...
"I'm going back for another treatment," she says. "Dr.
Heimlich told me I may have to do it again. He's made
all the arrangements with the doctors in Panama."
