Heath Bell had Typhoid Fever

via www.caffeinenebula.com

Heath Bell traveled to Hawaii with his wife to renew their wedding vows and got typhoid fever, also known as"cold feet". 

I don't get how you get cold feet when you've been married to your wife for 10 years and have four kids together. 

The story doesn't say if they were able to renew their vows or if they were forced to cut their trip short to travel back to San Diego..

"During the day, I felt pretty good, but at night I would start sweating a lot. It was like I ran five miles. I just kept sweating. At night, I would get these spurts when I would get cold and I would have 10 blankets on."

How would Bell know what it's like to run 5 miles?  I wonder if Typhoid is his new weight loss plan this off-season instead of his usual Wii Fit workouts.

Actually now that I look it up, Typhoid Fever has nothing to do with getting married.  It has more to do with eating poop or traveling on the Oregon Trail.

Typhoid can only spread in environments where human feces or urine are able to come into contact with food or drinking water.

That's disgusting, but like any life threatening disease there is a silver lining.

"I just think it's a blessing in disguise. Maybe it's the Lord telling me to ease up a little," Bell said. "Life is a gift and that's what we've been talking about the last week. You just never know."
