Visa to Ill: Sick in a Foreign Country

T-minus five hours to Myanmar. I awoke at 5AM after a night of fever dreams, having sweat through everything. I emptied the entire contents of my body, again, and ran a cold shower. Standing in the dark, near tears, I steadied myself against the glass wall and leaned into the water. The only rational thought I could muster was "Will this get better before it gets worse?"

 I gently woke Emily and mumbled the dreaded words: 
"I need to go to the hospital."
