When you consider the last few days, shut out from the outside world, not seeing anyone else outside of your household (well except the brief visit to the hospital) and all the time I spent in my bed just sleeping or dozing or half-asleep (most of the time) it’s easy to not notice the time passing by. The only indication for me as to what exact time it was, during these last 4 days, would be at 6 pm and 6:30 pm – cause the scheduled power cut is at 6 pm and it comes back at 6.30!
Thinking about this, and as always, a song will come to my mind about this time spent recuperating from my little bout with viral fever. It’s one of my favourites from Pearl Jam. It’s off their Yield album and it’s called In Hiding. Check out the lyrics!
To tell you the truth, I was beginning to see visions and there is a slender crack on the paint on my bedroom wall
I’m feeling more like myself, atleast I don’t feel like sleeping all the time from today. Or more precisely from this afternoon. I did nap in the afternoon but by by around 4 pm, I was beginning to get a semblance of the old self once again. It is now 7:43 pm and aside from a cough that won’t quit, lungs that hurt when I cough or try to breath too deeply and a nagging tiredness all over…I’m almost as good as new!
No, it feels a lot better and I’m thinking of going back to work on Saturday as I know I will have a ton of mail and some other things to sort through. Lucky for me, my team has taken care of the major things and it will be only the things that need my sole intervension that is left. So the plan is to rest and hope the cough and the wheezing gets better by Friday night! If it isn’t then Monday will be the day that I go back to work.
