22nd Day - 26/10/2005 (Wednesday)

I wake up feeling excited today. I get to go home. Finally! Hubby leaves for work and promises to come get me in a few hours time.

I watch tv and at about 10a.m., my Prof enters the room. She tells me that I can go home in while. The clerk is preparing all the necessary paperwork. Prof tells me that I can go back to work after Raya. I ask her again to confirm. She says InsyaAllah, I’ll be fine. I call hubby to inform him. Then I call my mama. I tell her that I can go back to work. She insists that I take leave. I agree, just so she wouldn’t be upset.

Hubby has helped me with the packing this morning. Only a few things are left. I am so excited that I finally get to go home today. It’s been 3 weeks! Hubby arrives at about 11.30, and we wait for all the paperwork and medication to be given. We leave the room and proceed to the clinic to finalise the bill and to get my medicine. Then hubby and I ride the buggy to the Ground Floor.

I leave the hospital with a great big sigh of relief. I am thankful to Allah that I am given another chance at living my life to the fullest. I understand that this has been my greatest Ramadhan challenge from Allah. I ask for His forgiveness and pray that I never have to go through such an ordeal again.


Author’s note:
I was diagnosed with septicemia, or blood poisoning. The symptoms included high fever, low blood pressure, palpitations and decreased urine. I was lucky to have gone to the hospital when I did. My liver was already bleeding internally and the virus had not only affected my liver, but also my heart and kidney. Had I gone to the hospital later, my kidneys might have suffered permanent damage.

I hope there's no 23rd for you. If there is, too much spam for me too handle in one day.

Please be considerate when pinging.

hey anonymous,
sorry abt that. but i did read the pps policies, and it says "Multiple pings within 7 minutes of each other is considered ping flooding". My pings were more than 7 minutes apart....

Lucky you went to the hospital in time. Hope you're now completely well, and never get such an illness again! :)
