I'm admitted to hospital!

Last night I was admitted to hospital here in Kuantan after vomiting 4 times and having some sort of seizure. My arms went all stiff and numb and I couldn't stop shaking.

It sounds bad right? Thankfully the ambulance didn't take too long to arrive!

I've been diagnosed with food poisoning and severe dehydration. I am currently lying here on my hospital bed, receiving my 5th sodium chloride drip.

It's working because I already feel so much better than yesterday and the specialist said I can be discharged tomorrow!

Most of all, I have been overwhelmed with messages of support from my friends on facebook, and I appreciate every single person who has wished me well in my recovery (and a happy birthday!) That's right, it's my birthday today too!

I hope to return to blogging as quickly as possible!


  1. Great birthday celebration, eh!!!!! Hope you're getting better and HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

  2. Get better soon and back to your loved ones !! And Happy Birthday, wish you a healthy and joyful year ahead :D

  3. That must be quite a severe case of food poisoning! Do take care and drink more water, Duncan. Get well soon!

  4. Bet your little girls are missing you, Duncan (and Fidelia too of course!!). So sorry to hear about this. It must have been quite frightening at the time, I would think. Such a pity that it's your birthday as well. Happy Birthday Duncan and GET WELL SOON! X

  5. Yikes! Glad to hear you're feeling better! Hope you continue to get well and that you had a great birthday despite your location! :)

  6. Oh dear, I'm glad you're feeling better! That doesn't sound pleasant at all! What a bummer. Hope you make up for your birthday when you were discharged!

  7. Be careful with outside food since you are not a local and your body might not have the antibody for common bacteria where local don't have a problem with.
    Our body needs time to adjust too.
