Last Saturday was my Grandpa’s 7th death anniversary. We brought a Reverend to do some rituals. Many people came back, including my 15-month niece, Xiyuan. Here are some of their intimate moments.
In the same evening, I attended Zoe’s 21st birthday party with Melody.
The next day, I started to get throat irritation and runny nose, and by afternoon, I felt I needed to rest and took some painkillers. Alas, the virus has begun their assault.
Monday, I tweeted:
I’m very sick since ytd. The usual throat-nose-bodyache symptons. Last nite was terrible, just waiting for dawn so i can see doc. 7:15 AM Jun 7th via Gravity
This time round the first sympton was headache on sat, which was unusual cus i usually have sore throat first. 7:18 AM Jun 7th via Gravity
That’s why i didn’t think much abt the headache, thot i was tired or something. Then sun morning the usual symptons started appearing liao. 7:19 AM Jun 7th via Gravity
Tried self medication since this is kindda “normal” symptons. But last nite was excruciating! Tried to sleep thru e nite so i cld see doc. 7:23 AM Jun 7th via Gravity
– Is this how i looked like when i’m bedridden? 9:41 AM Jun 7th via Gravity
My fever went up, so now going for second opinion. 07 June 2010 07:48:24 PM via Gravity
Doc says, suck it up! Ok basically it’s respiratory infection and as long as conscious level is up, it’s ok. 07 June 2010 08:22:20 PM via Gravity
Could incense have triggered such infection? Perhaps it’s my grandpa’s way of telling me to take a break. 07 June 2010 08:25:06 PM via Gravity
Fever taking me on a roller coaster ride. Still bedridden. I’ve never felt so ill in my life. 2 days sleeping non-stop. 08 June 2010 05:47:49 PM via Gravity
Looking forward to my next medication so that i will feel better. Meds work, but seemingly only for a few hours. 08 June 2010 05:49:01 PM via Gravity
Why can’t they make meds that consume every 3hrs? Can’t wait for mealtime so that i can wallop the pills. 08 June 2010 06:17:41 PM via Gravity
Clinic for 3rd opinion. Throat got worse thou fever subsided (@ Mount Alvernia Hospital) 09 June 2010 08:34:01 AM via foursquare
Doc diagnosed tonsilitis, gave me 3day MC. Never been ill for a whole week in my entire life. 09 June 2010 09:21:18 AM via Gravity
Doc gave me a jab, hopefully that would speed up the recovery. Fever went back up, i’m back on bed now. 09 June 2010 10:01:13 AM via Gravity
For the first time in 3 days, I am FEELING hungry. 09 June 2010 06:25:48 PM via yoono
After sleeping non-stop like an invalid for 4 days, it feels good to be useful again. 10 June 2010 05:00:30 PM via yoono
I seriously never slept so much in my entire life before, nor was I ever bedridden or on MC for such a long period. No joke! My fever just didn’t go down, and my throat even got worse. Sometimes, you just need to seek professional medications and not those neighbourhood clinics. In all fairness, they wouldn’t dare to give strong medications anyway. The antibiotic given by Mt. Alvernia Hospital Clinic costs $10 a pill and to be taken once every day. After I popped one, I can slowly feel the healing on my throat. After the second day of medication, my throat is no longer sore.
But I guess I should be thankful for giving an opportunity to take a REAL break from life. I just slept and slept and slept, and I am amazed how one can sleep so much.
My fever’s gone, but the World Cup fever’s just started! about 23 hours ago via yoono
To all the soccer fans, take care and rest well.
