fever panic

Posted: July 19, 2011 in developments, my physical condition

Yesterday, I panicked, I admit, because I thought I had fever.  In my condition a little sneezing/coughing/pain/dizziness or a little feverish feeling I report it to my wife. I got worried because the first time I told Nina that I have fever, I actually had pneumonia, I had to stay at the hospital for 8 days with I.V. and meds and blood test. the second time I had fever, was just fever(thank God!)  high grade fever tho. so I was back in the hospital for a good six days I think. Again with I.V.,meds and what-nots. but yesterday, it was freaking cold in the office in the first half of the day, it was like around 24C inside our office but late in the afternoon the sun was blaring on our office room (we are at the 40th flr). It   was so hot outside it felt like the A/C was suddenly not working.  I felt hot but not feverish.  called up Nina to update her, told her it might just be the room temp and that i took a paracetamol already just in case. when she got to my office to pick me up she brought a thermometer, it registered 36.6 panic over(thank YOU!!!). whew! i just don’t like the thought of staying for a week in the hospital again.  I’d rather stay with my boys at home  😀


I was playing with Lucas last week when Lucas’ nanny told me that Jolo’s nanny had a dream, that i was already up and about with my usual daily morning 3km running routine.  I was going downstairs ready with my running gear.  But she has never seen me running before or at least  saw me in my running gear, i was already doing radio-therapy when she came in as Jolo’s nanny.

could it be sooner? 🙂 not complaining.  Just happy that people around me even my helpers are praying that i get well sooner.  🙂

all in His perfect time 😀

i miss being hands-on with my kids,playing and getting beaten down by kuya Jolo on PS3 , doing fun runs, swimming, driving(now that SLEX is so smooth and some parts of C5)

Btw i’m looking for an  OT (occupational therapist) that does home service let me know please.

last June 27  i was diagnosed to have contracted Bell’s palsy  I complained to my wife the day before that there was something wrong. i told her the left side of my face seem to be better than the right side. More like drooping right side.  So Nina texted my doctor who happened to be out of the country, referred us to Dr. Dom Jamora(neurologist), also from St. Luke’s/PGH who happened to be Ate Mel’s classmate from med school. He said it was a good thing that I immediately noticed and complained about it. so He got me started with steroids and supplements, good for a two week treatment. Prescribed additional facial exercises and massages which my PT taught me.  after about two days of treatment, my bells is almost unnoticeable and today its almost as if nothing happened. my face is almost back to normal, almost because i still look bloated due to steroids (o – ,- o) :p

some good news…. i’m on my 2nd week back at work 🙂 feeling much better already.  gained a few pounds as well from128lbs (3weeks ago) to 135lbs as of last night 😀 been eating anything since i have no restrictions. 🙂

So yes, I went back to work last friday and it was a refreshing feeling. after being in hiatus(sort of) for a number of weeks. I really felt great being outside. Was supposed to only stay till 1 or 2 pm but i just go so engrossed doing stuffs like updating my test environment on my laptop, reviewing previous client issues and resolutions, helping out with one of the issue during that day. i ended up logging ou at 6pm. :)then pasta and pizza diner at aveneto.

then yesterday, had my bloodworks done in the morning at St. Luke’s hospital then went straight to greenbelt1 for lunch and to buy some stuff. walked around(self help therapy for my left leg). had big chill avocado shake that i missed so much, refreshing! anticipated mass in the afternoon. PT this morning, sinugbang baboy and fried veggie lumpia for lunch! namit gid! of course meds for dessert 😀 Very tiring weekend but worth it. can’t wait for Monday! wait…. can’t wait for what?! i really am sick in the head LOL!!

Today, July 1, 2011, I’m back for work. I’ll definitely miss my boys at home, but it feels good to be out of the house, different environment. feels more like therapy as well. i missed Makati, my colleagues, and the view here at our office at the 40th floor.  Missed the food from nearby restos.  oh well wish me luck. more prayers and good vibes please!!
