It all happened in a flash.
15 minutes of unconsciousness.
39 degree celsius.
4 litres drip/day.
20+ bloodtests & needle pricks.
7 days of hospitalization.
That week God showed me how blessed i am. Pain aside, he planted caring nurses, pleasant roomies, oodles of friends & family members by my side. And ensured abundance of food. Seriously, i can't say enough thankyous to the many darlings who kept me company.
Shall bypass the bloody needle scenes and zoom straight into edibles....
breakfast in bed (:
One thing for sure, my perception of hospital meals certainly changed. Food at SGH is not bad at all! In Class B1 wards you get a daily selection of chinese/western/vegetarian/indian halal for your meals, served right under your nose. Teatime arrives promptly at 3.
Vegetarian: Potato-stuffed Taupok
Chinese: Fish in Black Bean Sauce
yummy Western: Baked Fish Fillet (even ate up the salted peas)
not-so-yummy Western: Chicken in Tomato Gravy
Teatime: Pumpkin tart & Lipton tea
Of course i couldn't survive solely on hospital meals. I had my fair share of smuggled nosh too.... plus those plushies, balloons, fruit baskets & flowers (in background) to brighten my days. Love my friends!
