On Friday the Dr came into my hospital room...
"Hi Sasha, ok, your blood platelet count has gone up but you are still not at normal range yet, but I am willing to discharge you from the hospital but you have to promise me that you will rest all weekend and next week, take it easy. Just because I am letting you go doesn't mean you are out of danger. You are going to get tired very easily. My nurses have been telling me about you. They watched your dancing show, saying you're a good dancer and travel a lot, but you really need to slow down for a while. Ok? No jalan-jalan at Pavillion lah, go here, go there.....just rest...."
"Ok Dr, can I go now?"
"Wait, are you sure you are going to rest? If not I won't let you go. Dengue is still a serious disease and it has weakened you. Something else could make you sick very easily, like a flu or something. So you must rest and eat lots of healthy food."
"Yes Dr.... promise..."
With that, the drip which had made my left hand all puffy was taken out. When the nurse saw the needle.."Wah, your veins really are small... this is meant for babies.."
So I am back at home but it's true, every few hours I get really tired again and just want to fall asleep. So annoying actually... But I am so lucky and thankful that I didn't suffer as badly from dengue as some other people.
I still feel weak, and I can't wait to feel strong again...
