Hospital bed

Sorry for the lack of update.

As most of you might not know, i've been admitted to ICU in Melaka hospital. Due to several reasons.

First off I have severe food poisoning. Yes from tioman. I've always had a weak stomach, but this time the situation was worsen by kidney infection and contant high fever, for the past 3 days, measuring at 39.4 degree celcius.

I couldn't walk, couldn't sleep nor eat nor drink for 2 straight days. Facing high dehydration, I was finally admitted into ICU.

I hate hospital, and I hate their beds,most of all, I hate the fact that they don't allow my close ones to stay ovenight here with me, or the fact that they keep waking every hour or so to measure you, or to feed you medicine, after you took so much effort to fall asleep on their hard uncomfortable bed.

I was shivering from 2am to 4am, and no one care or took notice. Then my head was spinning like I was going to puke, and all they did was ask me to stay put.

The day and night had never felt longer when you're lying on a hospital bed.

  15. Melaka, eek, my hometown.

    Hospital ICU are very cold during the mid-night. Must ask for extra blanket for warmness(if they allow you)

    Maybe it's due to the fact that they need to contaminate you from germs that's why the temperature is so cold.

    Get well soon ya~
    hope to see more of your blog

  45. Being in hospital does suck rocks. When I was in hospital for 10 days, besides the creaky too soft mattress, the worst thing about the beds was the thin bedsheet that passed for a blanket...
