i see you for 24 hours

Two days before ICU admission:
I was having flu and cough for the third times within a month. My body started aching.

A couple of hours before admission:
I was getting ready for work when I got increasing shortness of breath and within minutes, it got worsen. I have to call my wife who was still in the hospital for on call duty. She rushed home and brought me to hospital immediately. In the Emergency, I was pushed to the resuscitation area and everything was swiftly done to make me comfortable.

In the ICU:
Things were better by the time I reached ICU. I was put with all sort of monitoring cables and lines. The next few hours, one after another, doctors came in and examined me, including my hematologist. Most of them felt that I had a pneumonia but my hematologist added that he need to rule out lungs GVHD (graft versus host) i.e. Bronchiolitis Obliteran. I hope it is not. I was started on antibiotic and anti viral infusions.

Now:
I am already in the normal ward. Feeling much better without oxygen support. But need to stay longer for antibiotic and anti viral and also I need to go for CT Lung next week to confirm what is going on.
