Lisa Whelchel may be trying to survive on Survivor: Philippines but she's also fighting for survival in real life!
She has West Nile virus!!
That sounds terrifying!
"Dr. just called with blood test results… I have West Nile. Ugh. I'm fine, just tired. Takes a year to recover."
Whew! Glad to hear it's nothing too serious.
We kinda thought West Nile was really really serious.
Sorry about the year long recovery but at least you'll be okay.
We previously mentioned that West Nile cases were still growing!
So make sure to protect yourself if you live in a mosquito infested area!
Feel better, Lisa!
