The script in ‘Black’ relate to the fifth morning after I was admitted into St Helier Hospital and it’s what I sent out to my family.
Today, As I was happily bouncing around, I was approached by one of the doctors who said they will be taking my saline/intravenous attachments away, as they felt I was responding well to all of the current treatment of liquid antibiotics…
…and they wanted to give me antibiotics in pill form only (or by mouth only).
Knowing they were going to remove the intravenous feed made me feel slightly deflated, as it came to mind that it may be the antibiotics delivered to my body intravenously that was making me feel as well as I did.
Y’know, when they injected the fluids into my arm, the liquid was far cooler than my own temperature where I may have (from time time) pulled a face or made and expression where one nurse asked me:
“Is It Hurting?”
Where I said:
On The Contrary,
It’s Feels Quite Nice And Cooling…”
Hold on a minute?
Was I becoming attached to the intravenous feed and antibiotics?
Is that how one becomes attached…
…which in turn…
…they become addicted?
…it was only the cool flow of liquid going into my arm I was more fascinated with, as my body temperature is normally quite high…
…it’s not that I have or had a fever at the time or time they fed the antibiotics through intravenously but I am or my body is always hot…
…where my hands and feet tend to be much cooler!
Anyway, now they were taking even more away from me!
First it was the oxygen and now it’s the intravenously fed antibiotics!
“What If I Relapse Without The Antibiotics?”
That did cross my mind and that is also what the doctors wanted to find out.
Well, there I was bouncing around the hospital ward, laughing and joking with the staff, so to look at me, one must have been wondering:
“What On Earth Is He Doing In Here?
He Doesn’t Look Sick!?!?!?
And He Doesn’t Act Like He Is Sick!
Now Get Him Out Of Here
And Give That Bed To Someone Who Really Needs It!”
That crossed my mind too, as I could see the looks on hospital staff who were passing by, who didn’t work on the ward I was in but they were maybe taking a shortcut to yet another ward or section of the hospital.
Eventually, I think people were passing the ward just to see who I was, being that person who was:
- Practicing Tai-Chi (where two members of staff took great interest and where one expressed the desire to learn too))
- Practicing Martial Art (where one nurse was concerned I may hurt myself)
- Singing and Playing Music (where one nurse thought they had reintroduced the St Helier Hospital Radio Station)
- The one helping the nurses to undertake some tasks
- Dancing (which was to strengthen my legs but where many new faces were looking in and some were even joining in!)
- Even perhaps providing stimulating conversation because I found the conversation with all of the staff stimulating and the feeling of stimulation, generally works both ways, doesn’t it?
You’ll find the timelines go in and out and back and forth but stay with me, stick with me, as everything will come together, as the main aim of this site is to help you and your loved ones deal with the COVID-19 and give your life (back) to CHRIST, whether COVID-19 comes a knocking at your door or not!
Tuesday the 7th April 2020 – Day Five In St Helier Hospital
They have taken me off the antibiotics administered via the saline drip.
That’s where I have a needle stuck in my arm but yet still, be mobile.
I’m now on antibiotic pills.
I have to continue with my Deep Breathing.
I have just learned that I have lost 7kg in four days!!!
I know I had lost weight but not that much!!!
I now have to hold it together, mentally as learning I have lost 7kg has knocked the positive wind out of me…
…plus I can feel some fatigue setting in, perhaps because I am not being pumped full of liquid antibiotics.
So now my body is pretty much on its own as the doctors want to see how I cope being on antibiotics by mouth only.
I’ve just eaten a ton of food!
And I have to keep on eating, tons!
I need to strengthen my legs as apparently that’s where I have lost most of my weight from?!?!?!?
So, I have to keep moving or Dancing!
“A Time To Weep
And A Time To Laugh,
A Time To Mourn
And A Time To Dance.”
