Infection Hits Me Again




I was chilling cold last Saturday afternoon which I mistook for the effect of the super cold weather we’ve been experiencing lately. I thought of bathing it away with a cold shower. What followed next after the cold shower was chillier moments matched with very high fever. I took paracetamol but the fever wouldn’t subside. The chill would be gone for a while but would be back again and again even with paracetamols. Until the early morning of Sunday when hubby could see that I am really battling with the chill. He drove me to the ER of National Kidney and Transplant Institute. I was confined and went through a lot of laboratory tests. The diagnosis: Complicated Urinary Tract Infection. No ordinary infection indeed, coz shivers and fever persisted even with the four IV bottles of antibiotics emptied in my vein. I got better though with the fifth until I was totally free of chills on Tuesday. My doctor required a 24 hour fever free period before I could be discharged. I was allowed to go home only on the noon of Wednesday.

I have missed my blogging so much that as soon as I arrived home I took my laptop and attempted to return the visits of blogger friends. But after only doing one, I felt dizzy and needed to rest. I’ve wasted a couple of very precious, once in a blue moon opps for me. Sigh! I just hope the advertiser won’t take that against me. Anyway, I’m back and kickin’. I miss you all, my blogger friends!

Hi Tita Beng, I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to you. How are you feeling now? Are you okay? You should really rest first especially since you just got out of the hospital. UTI huh? and a complicated one at that. Yikes! I've had UTI before too so I can sympathize with you... I really do hope you feel better soon. Someone like you who is a Cancer survivor should definitely take extra precautions when it comes to your health especially since your immune system is down and with you having had chemo, radiation and surgery, it had altered your body. What did your doctor say about the UTI? It might be a long term side effect of your cancer treatment... usually when you've had a combination of treatments, you're likely to experience late effects. I hope you feel better soon. God bless you Tita Beng. *hugs*

To all of you, my dear friends!

Thanks so much for the concern. Your caring words gave me so much strength to get back to wellness!

It's a great feeling having friends even only in blogsphere!

I wonder how it would be meeting all of you in one event. Dreaming the impossible dream. (LOL)
