So do you like the Sun?

Somebody ask me that next time. My answer is NO.

I accepted a very exciting job at an OpenSource company ( putting a pause to 1.5 yr consultancy ). Traveled under the hot Sun to the office that is 29kms away from home. Came back home in the cold night.
Who would have thought this would have any effect on my life!

It started as a very mild fever on 18th mar, gradually growing to cold, cough, body pains and wham by 25th, I was completely taken.
I was taken to hospital and they suspected snake bite!!! seeing my blue nails. ( No nail polish/ink, I dont know how they got blue). They tested me for malaria, CBP, typhoid. All negative. Took X-ray to check for cough accumulation in chest – neg.
They couldn’t figure out the reason that kept my body temperature at 102 C. No antibiotics, no tablets worked. I got weaker and weaker by every minute. To add to my mysery was this breathing problem and sleeplessness. Like sandman had boycotted that hospital.

I could only take half idli a day but was getting regular dose of glucose and antibiotic into my blood. That was a total of 5 glucose and 3 antibiotic bottles.
My temperature gradually came down to 100 on the 3rd day of hospitalisation.
I couldn’t bear staying awake all night and begged to be released. So, I am home now and manage to get 3-4 hours of sleep.

Not that I’ve become healthy again. My temp still dangles between 99-100. Sounds and light irritate me. I asked everyone to speak minimum and only if required. I can’t stand up for long and still keep coughing.

Writing this post from the darkened computer room, laying on my beanbag, with laptop’s brightness set to 10% !
Would you believe that I’ve become so slow that this post took me about 2 hours to write?

Anyway, my mom took lot of care for me throughout my stay in hospital and continues still. Seen her spend sleepless nights and reject food because I wasn’t eating. Love ma.
