They might be pretty Fireworks but I feel like a damp squib.
My fever, generalised ache and diarrhoea have subsided sufficiently well enough and my neck stiffness and my photophobia have gone completely, so, what did they do, they let me out.
My temperature at one point was 39.1 Celsius (over 102 Fahrenheit) but I was shivering like a, ehm, a very cold thing. I was hoping for a sponge bath from a pretty young nurse (female obviously) but fat chance.
I'm out though but still infectious, antiseptic wipes appear miraculously everywhere I go and I feel as strong as a supersoaked tissue.
Meningitis was taken off the suspect list fairly quickly despite me having most of the common symptoms so suspicion fell on a gastro-intestinal cause and eventually detected as adenovirus. What does that mean, god, I don't know, google it. The high point of my visit is that the CT scan confirmed I have a brain.
If you are interested in lumbar punctures ask me about the seven holes in my back.
The viral source is usually airborne from an infected client or sometimes an infected surface or contaminated water. So whoever, or whatever it was Thanks. The incubation period is 2 to 14 days so I ain't going far in that time period (from last Friday) but energy wise I'll be at least a week anyway getting well enough.
Thanks for the good wishes and offers of help, thanks guys (and gals).
