Sick Leave

First, it was the tooth extraction. Then, I caught a virus from God knows where which made me weak and feverish and suffer from almost non-stop diarrhea for three days (and still counting). Now is actually the first day that I’m able to sit up and think straight.I spent the last three days in bed either sleeping or wondering whether it was time to bring myself to the hospital, and figuring out how I can possibly do that given my condition. Thank God for doctor friends and for diagnostic labs, I was able to go on medication without actually leaving the house.

When things like this happen, you’re suddenly reminded that you are not in control of anything. Anything at all. I had great plans for this week (which included meeting up with a certain someone who happens to be my favorite person in the world) but now, my doctor tells me this virus could last up to seven days and I’m under strict orders to observe a particular diet and to avoid stress. Oh well. At least I get to catch up with my readings and think about my discernment and call Mama as often as I want to. And I’m finally on the last few episodes of The West Wing. So I’m not complaining. Somebody just please stop me from buying all those books from Kindle before I finally drive myself to bankruptcy.

It took me almost an hour to figure out what to write here so I guess that says a lot about me.

    I will; I will stop you from buying all those books from Kindle! 🙂
    I’m sorry to hear about your virus, and the bed rest. I hope your work allows you to miss a few days and I hope you heal fast. We still haven’t talked about our respective trips! I hope to see you soon. Sorry could not reply this morning, en banc day plus first day of class in PLM, and my mother is back with all her house renovations, and my elbow is painful. Miss you na. 🙂
