InepdShirley @teddyfrank You know some times, you never really now what you've lost until you realise it's not there anymore. Thanks for thinking of us. 7:04 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Shirley are you there. Couldn't get on Yesterday. Was doing logistics report for Anna and had to us the HP Smartcalc300. Sorry I missed you. 7:05 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane I started to get asymmetric swelling in my groin from the scabies treatment. Is this normal? 7:07 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Yes Shane I am here. How are you my love. 7:07 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Yes we had the same side effects with the kids in the Darfur camps. Should be gone in 10 days. 7:09 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I knew I shouldn't worry. The swelling is also a little bit discoloured with a purple tinge. Probably nothing. 7:10 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane What about the worms? 7:11 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I started to get stomach cramps and some mild bleeding in my stool. 7:12 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane This should clear up in 1-2 days. Let me know if the bleeding persists. You took the mixture orally. 7:14 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Yes I took it orally. 7:14 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane You can also take it as a suppository but you have to ground the charcoal fine so you get a smooth paste. #FREESHANE 7:15 PM 24-Aug-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Good tip for next time. 7:16 PM 24-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Have you heard any news on the Aus Embassy. #FREESHANE 7:17 PM 24-Aug-09

InepdShirley Feel so hopeless today. Just like the time in Darfur when we ran out of plumpy-nut at the therapeutic feeding centre with Shane. #FREESHANE 8:56 PM 25-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We didn’t know what to do, but we didn’t give up. We thought we can make something up so the kids could continue with their treatment. 8:57 PM 25-Aug-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We put together Steam(local lemonade) flour, Hibiscus petals and a bit of salt. We keep that centre open for 10 days till supplies arrived. 8:57 PM 25-Aug-09
