It either gets better, or worse.

So apparently I am still in the hospital, no longer in the ICU, but still feeling equally worse as before.

Typically my daily routine now is to wake up in the middle of the night, shivering uncontrollably, then when the shiver subsides, say, 1 or 2 hours later, in come the high fever, this morning 5am my fever went as high as 40 degree celcius.

Then the nurse will come and feed me two panadols, half an hour to an hour later, I will start to get extremely dizzy, when I'm not on anti-vomiting serum, I will puke, water or whatever little tiny fruit I ate earlier.

So far I have not consumed proper food that has not been puked out for 3-4 days, it's a scary feeling. You feel that you stomach is just full of meds and nothing else.

Then when the paracetamol kicks in, I will finally doze off into wonderful land, which is the most comfortable time I have, and when I wake up say half a hour later, I will be drown in sweats, and I will feel fine for... say... 2 hours? like now actually. Then the whole routine will repeat again and again, basically around three times of shiver-to-sweat a day.

Using the opportunity I was pushed in a wheelchair with my drip still attached to my right hand, "borrowing" the hospital ground floor wifi to do some updates, mainly because I felt that I have been neglecting you guys too much.

Moving to the medical ward is more comfortable, because there are fewer talking nurses and coughing patients at night, and they switch off the lights, and the beds are softer too.

Doctor would still want to me to stay another 2 days in the hospital, I don't know how long this is going to last, I feel like I am going to collapse anytime soon.

Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments, I'm sorry if I am not able to reply each and every one of you, as time is running out and I need to get back to my ward. Sigh~


ps// apparently, according to the doctor, this is due to kidney infection & inflammation (which happens quite often to me over the past few years coz I have a weak right kidney) and not due to food poisoning. But who knows.

  36. It sounds quite serious. Make sure the doctor knows exactly what he is doing. Your fever reminds me of Dengi Fever. Do have it checked as well. Do drink a lot of water unless you're still on drip.

    Hope you're better soon....:-) Angie
