So I came back to NJ last week from my wonderful vacation in India.. and as soon as I come back I fell ill. If you remember I had a bout of food poisoning while I was in India.. I thought I had recovered.. I guess that was just in my mind..
I come back on Sunday and within 24 hours symptoms of my ailment (high fever and stomach issues return). Went to my doctor and he scared the bejesus out of me by telling me of all these scenarios: Dengue Fever, Maleria, Salmonella Poisoning..
So I’ve been taking all these tests and over the past week and am awaiting results. So for the past 4 to 5 days I’ve been pretty much laid up and bedridden. Just over the past 24 hours have I started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank goodness for the strongest antibiotic that I got (CIPRO). I’m still running a temperature on and off, but the major symptoms of body aches and bathroom runs (literally and figuratively) have disappeared.
Let’s see how things go this week. I’m able to function for a few hours at a time without the dreaded weakness and the intermittent temperature..
I know I promised everyone that I’d write more about my India vacation, but right now, my life is just in a holding pattern till I beat this dreadful illness.
My beloved NY Rangers being knocked out of the playoff’s wasn’t much of a help..
Only thing that seems to work is drinking lots of fluids and taking Aleve every time I feel feverish..
Anyway, I’m sure I’m boring you with this, so I’ll stop..
