On April 8th (which was a moon day), I contracted a very aggressive urinary tract infection which spread into the bloodstream causing septicemia. The doctor is working on a blood culture in order to find a proper antibiotic. The doctor says I will need to be hospitalized for 1-2 weeks or until the bacteria is completely gone.
As a consequence, I’m bedridden in the hospital right now, and feeling very weak, sore, and sleepy. I barely have enough strength to trudge to the toilet 3 meters away. I have a fever that comes and goes, so it’s also hard to think straight.
Earlier this year, I made a goal to post something on Sigma Frame three times a week. As I recall, Adam admonished me to post regularly, as a way to be responsible to the readers. So I chose Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Up until now, I’ve found this goal to be challenging, but realistically doable. But even here in the hospital, I find this goal to be a good deal more challenging, but still doable.
I do have a couple pieces I was working on, but because of this sudden illness, I wasn’t able to finish one for today.
So as I’m lying here in the hospital (on Good Friday), I’m wondering what I can post. All my writing projects are on my desktop computer at home. I’m nearly out of my mind with fever. This is a real challenge of creativity!
Stream of consciousness! A writing technique I learned in the 9th grade.
It will be funny to read this post in the future and see just how out of it I was at the time.
I understand that a lot of people around the world are in some sort of home or neighborhood quarantine right now. It is interesting how this has brought some good results. This is getting kids out of gang-ridden, homophilic, common core crap schools, it’s bringing families closer together, and it is increasing the general creativity. Take a look at this guy’s creation!
Unlike me, during this time of illness, my writings will lack the prolific linkage backup, picture stories, and beautiful formatting.
I will have something of more substance on Monday.
Take care of yourselves!
