Dear readers

So sorry. I am very ill and need complete rest in bed. I went to the hospital for tests and X-rays after dragging my feet for two months. I had seen a few doctors thrice and finally went to see a specialist today.

I hate going to hospitals and absolutely dread injections, X-rays and procedures. I also dread waiting in hospitals as I am not one who likes crowded places.

It is not an exaggeration to say that I hyperventilated and almost went into a panic attack while waiting for my turn at various places e.g at the specialist's clinic, X-ray department, pharmacist and the cashier.

When I saw the bill, I was HORRIFIED!!! And I cannot claim from the insurance company because I was not admitted. :-( Of course I ranted about some of the charges which I regard as ridiculous.

I am not thinking straight and need to sleep because I have only had three nights' of proper sleep (at least 6 hrs) since I fell ill in early January. The past one week, especially yesterday, I have had about 3-4 hours of sleep each night.

Will update later in the evening when I feel better. I think my anger wrt the bill spiked my blood pressure so now I have to contend with giddiness and a host of other problems.

Life is so fragile and precious. Another friend's dear friend passed away yesterday. :(

I remember my dad saying when young, we would attend friends' wedding witness the birth of their kids, see them grow up, attend their weddings and when the sunset years creep in, one would be attending the funerals of their loved ones.

So,I guess I am at that stage of life now...

Take care and have a pleasant evening. Next post will be in a few hours' time.

Best wishes,

    Thank you so much for your kindness and prayers. I slept very early last night and for the first time in 2012, had nine hours of uninterrupted sleep.

    Prayers work! And God is good.

    May the Almighty bless you and yours always with health, happiness and all you need for always.

    Have a great weekend and do stay in touch!

    Best wishes

    michael Sorry to hear that you are not well. Life is unpredictable like the weather. Some days bright and shining. Other days rain and windy storm. This is especially so when we are over 50. Aches and pains are the norm. We will pray for your speedy recovery and continued good health. May God bless all of us with good health...always.

    patches Dear MWS - I think I get your posts late but nonetheless I am worried and anxious about you - hope you're feeling better now.
    Pray and put your trust in the Lord - He is our Help and Deliverer.

    Will be praying for you to find the root cause of your illness. Relax and take things easy. Don't set too much for yourself to achieve.

    God bless for a speedy recovery.

    Love and hugs.

    masterwordsmith Dear Michael and Patches

    Thank you very much for your kindness and prayers. It is really true. The older we get, the longer we take to recover from ailments. It has been one looooooong road this time.In fact, this is the first time inn my life I have been sick so long. :-(

    And you are right wrt aches and pains, especially during this rainy season. I am much better now, thanks to the prayers and get-well wishes of friends like you. Today, I can finally taste food!!! My x-rays are clear and I hope to be ok by next week. There's still quite a bit of post-nasal drip but I hope all will be well soon. I have not been able to exercise at all and hope to resume my regular routine soon.

    Wishing both of you a fantastic weekend and God's blessings and protection upon you and yours.

    Take care and do keep in touch.

    Best wishes
