Silly goose

It's not often one hopes that one is suffering from the flu. I was told by the good doctor at Thomson Medical Centre on Friday night that I had to watch for symptoms of dengue, seeing as I had a spiking fever of 40'C, on and off (and off and on again Saturday night and Sunday morning). The good doctor also warned me that the new batch of Voltaren injections didn't come with anesthetic anymore, so it would hurt a bit. It hurt a little, enough for me to mutter Phua Chee Bye (Phua Chu Kang's long lost brother) loud enough so that the people outside the consultation room could hear. Sunday afternoon was a woozy one, but I thought, what better than to see if I have dengue by going out to meet a friend for coffee and see if I last an hour. I lasted three, but that was a pretty dumb thing to do just to test if I had dengue. So, kids, don't try this at home. Boiling fever not as bad as... Raging fever still not half as bad as poor Uncle Lapan's fate Surf stop: life in shades of sepia On A Bad Day from the album "Barricades & Brickwalls" by Kasey Chambers

Just wondering if they are suspecting dengue, did they do a blood test for your platelet count? Hope you get well soon :)

oh dearie i got dengue in dec 2000 and it was horrid i say! intermitten fever, aching bones, puking, face puffy due to medication, constant rash even putting on a blanket hurts.
for 2 whole weeks! tell ur missus to get you chicken soup, and expect to lose loads of weight.
yeah and try not to knock into stuff or fall as u might bleed internally unknowingly.. u'd probably be hospitalized if its confirmed anyway.
