Where I stayed
Bangkok Hospital, Phuket

Friday, December 5, 2008

It all started last Friday when I suddenly found myself spending the entire afternoon curled up on my side while my arms and legs shook me senseless with their uncontrollable violent spasms.

I've been in hospital all week. I've had x-rays, three MRI scans (back, head and neck) a brain scan, three blood tests, two urine tests, and no - they still can't tell me what's wrong with me. In fact they say that there's nothing wrong with me, yet still look at me with sympathy as I writhe around on the bed with flailing arms and legs that seem to have a mind of their own. Nor can they explain why my kidneys hurt yesterday and my shoulder blades hurt today and why the pain is slowly moving its way up to the top of my neck. And they still can't tell me why I've got pins and needles in my arms legs AND hands, and a dizzy whirry feeling in my head just behind my eyes that seems to slow me down when I try and think.

Yes, I've had better days.

Anyway more later, I just had to get out of those four walls for five minutes. Now I'm feeling dizzy again so I'm off to lie down. I'll be in touch..

Holy Beers N Noodles Wozman!
Bloodyhell mate you're havin a rough trot lately.

The ony way things could be worse is if someone turned your hospital telly onto China's Channel V, China's Channel V, China's Channel V, China's Channel V, China's Channel V...Want me to repeat that, repeat that, repeat that, repeat that!

You'll be right mate, get back on ya bike and you'll be fixed up in no time at all. I bet it will be sumthin small, like a faulty gasket or sprocket!

My next bowl of noodles has your name on it.

I've had quite a few really bad, like death warmed up hangovers in the last four years living in China but I can only imagine what goes through ones mind when something like whats been happening to you happenes in a country like Thailand, Laos or China.

I hope they find you a new chain and sprocket set real soon. Here's to the return of your health buddy....shane
