Saturday Night Fever
Yes, that was what I got... fever on a Saturday night!
It would have been much enjoyable watching young John Travolta strutting his dance moves, instead a ton of brick seemed to dance in my head... throbbing so intensely that was all too much to bear.
For no apparent reason, I started to get light headaches around 4:00pm yesterday. I brushed it off as nothing to be worried about thinking maybe I was staring at the computer monitor a little too long.
The headache became more intense after my son came back from his Malay Tuition class as 5:30pm... and came the painful throbbing in my head with all my joints aching in pain.
Had a dose of panadol to relief the pain and slept in the afternoon. I could not sleep anymore so I curled up on the sofa to watch some TV.
I remember sleeping through Madagascar and came to in time to watch Tom Cruise in War Of The World on HBO.
I had no appetite to eat dinner, so had only a hot cup of cereal instead. My son had his early dinner at MacDonald's before he came home.
Like a pro, my son "nursed" me with a thermometer and an ice-pack to treat my fever while I lay in bed. I had a 38.2 Deg Celsius reading and felt so cold, but another dose of panadol 4 hours after brought much relief to the aching joints and throbbing head.
The ice-pack on my forehead felt like heaven.
My son had 3 ice cubes wrapped in a hand-towel, and tied with a rubber band. He placed the ice-pack on a saucer and placed it at the side of the bed. He opened the window slightly ajar to ventilate the room since it was raining all day long, and switched off the lights to let me rest comfortably.
I heard Wifey came back last night but was just too sick to talked too her until I woke up this morning. Still groggy with a slight tension on my nape, I guess I have to go to the doctor to get me fixed-up soon.
First my office PC went bonkers on me, now my body. Everthing needs to get fixed.
What a way to spend a weekend! Arrgh!
