Rosa's Dengue Experience

06/23/2006

[Spanish - Followed In English]
Luego  de haber disfrutado un paseo por los pueblos de Retiro...semti algo extraño  en mi cabeza
por un momento pense que se debia a la altura pero no era asi, el dengue estaba actuando en mi sangre y estaba mi cuerpo confundido
estaba peleando mi sistema?? luego al llegar a casa despues de tantas vueltas y una noche fria
me dispuse  a dormir...pero esa noche fue cundo empezaba toda la odisea....

26/06 - Toda esta noche fue imposible encontrar el sueño, ya que senti un fuerte dolor en todo el cuerpo... malestar y mucho frio aunque estaba muy abrigada pero sabia que algo malo estaba pasandome
,mucho sudor en mi cuerpo y dolor de cabeza solo queria dormir  un poco y despues pemsar que solo fue un mal sueño...avise a Daryl que es lo que me estaba pasando pero creo estaba sumergido en su sueño...(como siempre)
y  deje que pasara asi... luego mo recuerdo creo que pude dormir por 3 horas...

Cuando amanecio y semti por que el sol estaba puesto em mi cara...pero mis dolores eran mas fuertes fue ahi donde decidimos ir por un medico ...
cuando llegamos al hospital de Envigado cerca de donde estabamos, entramos a urgencias y tras luego de mucha burocracia y sin pagar una doctora me atendio muy anablemente..ella resolvio que posiblemente era
un virus.. pero eran temprano para detectarlo emtonces me dio Acetaminofen 500ml. y talvez  habia una posibilidad de un "Dengue" luego que le conte que yo venia de haber rrecorrido "laGuajira"con 
Daryl regresamos a casa y dispuestos a tener un fin de semana puente  en la Finca de fam. de adriana...
Ese viaje fue muy complicado puesto que  no estaba bien y la droga no estaba ayudandome en nada.
Esa noche fue lo mismo no pude dormir

O trate de comer algo  si era talvez lo que me faltaba pero no hubo caso....
la tarde del domingo fui a ver un doctor asmigo de la familia... luego de examinarme hacia mas pequeñas mis dudas de que posible era un Dengue, luego de darme unos antibioticos y algo de ibuprofeno
los chicos resolvieron que tenia que hacer un exame de sangre para descartar todolo posible...fuimos a hospital en  La pintada, cual al dia siguiente me dieron negativos.

Lunes - Retornamos a casa y yo seguia sintiendome peor mi cuerpo sentia que no tenia fuerzas...tampoco esa noche pude dormir.. ya llevaba como 3 dias sin poder hacerlo. 

Martes - Muy temprano  teniamos que ir al Taller motos y estuvimos todo el dia en ese lugar taras mi agonia era lenta.... pero  aunque trataba de estar mejor no lo conseguia.
Luego despues de dejar la moto  retornamos  a casa .. aun sintiendome mal tarte de dormir... y no pude fiebre toda la noche sentia mi cabeza mas grande de lo que era!!

Miercoles - Luego de llegar al taller de motos y daryl ofrecerme muchas cosas, que estando bien me las niega siempre me senti un poco aliviada solo un poco querias quedarme a  enriquecer mis conocimientos  pero este maldito Dengue no me dejo
Decidi en ese momento  que solo necesito de mis fuerzas para decidir que hacer lo que vine  haciendo casi toda mi vida.... yo decido... si claro y pensando me fui al hospital General de Medellin

Ahi me atendio un doctor luego de verme en un estdo que  no podia esperar mas 
 me dejo en observacion...pense que me quedaria y como avisar a Daryl donde estoy luego de llamr a Sebastian me senti mas aliviada pero todavia un poco mal por estar sola y sin saber estar haciendo lo correcto ya que no tenia recursos con que pagar
pero eso luego no me importo....
solo  segui las ordenes del medico... luego de pasar por varios controles medicos... finalmente estuve en una habitacion donde Daryl llego despues todo sorprendido y yo asustada sin saber lo que me estaba pasando
Dayl se fue y dijo que volveria pero no aparecio nunca.....

Jueves - Entendi que este dia era el peor por que el Dengue estaba en mi cuerpo  y jugando con mi sangre...Daryl estab junto a mi  las horas que se podia y contandome todo lo que sabia de la enfermedad pero yo no si en ese momento queria saber mas
sobre el tema pero tambien pensaba que debia saber lo que esta pasando con mi cuerpo, creo que muchas personas se van sin saber cual fue  la razon exacta

Bien si me tengo que ir por esta fatalidad esta bien es la vida, pense en todo lo que habia hecho hasta ahora de mi vida  todo lo que habia podido conocer  creo que me faltaria un poco mas....... pero tengo una razon clara de la vida en si
estaria contenta de ndie pensara en mi con melancolia y mi familia que pasaria con ellos no se???
Pero creo que etaria conteta de encontrarme con gente que deje de ver y que lo volveria a ver y quedarme con ellos y ahora me podia apartar mas y si los encuentro de hablar de cosas que nunca se hablo y talvez conocer aun mas de ellos, tambien estoy en una etapa de mi vida donde aprendi muchas cosas que lo espiritual es mucho mejor que lo material claro que de las experiencias se viven y que cada ser humano elige su destino y que este fue el mio indudablenete....

Viernes - Suiguiendo con las ordenes del medico trataba de estar mejor pero las noches eran largas y los dias infinitos solo queria salir de ahi....... cuando llegaria alguien y me dijieran  pudes salir... en que momento???
un dia mas....casi recuperando mi sueño
La trabajadora social viene a buscarme a cobrar por los servicios de hospital pero yo explico ante todo siempre que no tengo recursos , pero ellos no creen....mi pregunta es donde esta el lado humano de las personas???

Sabado - Otro examen mas, que no es suficiente acaso tanta sangre,que hacen despues laboratorio con la sangre que sobra la tiran por el caño o la guardan es una duda??
con mis plaquetas por el piso, sigo sintiendome un poco debil...me doy cuenta que al mirar veo imagenes dobles,y mis musculos duelen al menor movimiento....no se como dormir tampoco puedo sentarme mucho tiempo....

Domingo - Mas examenes para ver como mi sangre sigue haciendose mas liquida
tengo plaquetas 62...y entonces que estan esperando  que me bajen por completo no se?? nadie me explica nada... 

Lunes - Luego de varias noches consigo dormir y tener sueños raros....
pero me siento un poco mas aliviada pero fuerte dolores por momentos en mi cuerpo....el dia transcurre y daryl trata de animarme todo el tiempo....
y piemso que mañana va hacer un dia duro... puesto que yo no tengo dinero con que pagar....

Martes - Luego de que un enfermero me dice que llego el gran dia,si el dia de alta medica tan esperados por nosotros los enfermos...siento que va hacer mas duro que la enfermedad...tratar de hacer entender a ese grupo de personas que mis condiciones no me permiten dar lo que ellos reclaman  y quieren hacer justicia donde no hay ninguna injusticia solo por que ellos se escuchan asi mismos....y ser tratada como cualquier cosa sin impotarle lo que yo estoy sientiendo en ese momento todo se me viene a la cabeza... otra vez
ahora pregunto que es peor el Dengue emorrajico que tuve la fatalidad de contraer o todo esta bola de personas queriendo cumplir su sistema????

Miercoles - Esperando que llegue la tarde en Medellin , daryl llevo la moto por 4 vez al taller y esperando que sea la ultima para mañana poder partir sin  ningun problema...

[English]

June 23, Friday - After having enjoyed a stroll through the town Retiro… I felt something strange in my head for a moment I thought that it had to be the altitude but it was not this, the dengue was acting in my blood and it was my confused body fighting my system? Later arriving home after many trips and one cold night I found myself to sleep… but that night was when began the odyssey….

June 24, Saturday - All the night it was impossible to sleep, since I felt a strong pain in all the body… malaise and very cold although it was very warm but wise that something bad was passing through me. So much sweat in my body and a headache, only wanting to sleep a little and later to awake and to think it was only a bad dream… I warned Daryl of what was happening to me but I thought it was submerged in a dream (as always) and as such I let it go… later i thought i remember that I was able to sleep for 3 hours...

When I woke up and I felt because the sun was in my face… but my pains were stronger and it was there where we decided to go to a doctor… When we arrived at the Envigado Hospital near where we were, we entered into Emergencies and after much bureaucracy and without paying a doctor they attended me very friendly. The doctor determined that possibly it was a virus but that it was still too early to detect it so she gave Acetaminofen to me, telling me there is the possibility of “Dengue” as soon as i told her that we travelled through La Guajira. We returned home and arranged to have a long weekend at the ranch of Adriana's family… That trip was very complicated since it was not well and the drug was not helping me at all.

That night was the same, I could not sleep. I tried to eat something if I needed but there was no use….

June 25, Sunday - In the afternoon I went to see a doctor friend of the family… after examining me less were my doubts that it was Dengue. After giving me antibiotics and some ibuprofeno the boys realized we had to do a blood test to really discover whatever it was. We went to hospital in La Pintada, which on the following day gave me a negative result for Malaria.

June 26, Monday - We returned to house and I continue to feel worse, my body feels that I have no force... that night I could not sleep either. It has been 3 days without being able to sleep.

June 27, Tuesday - Very early we have to go to the moto workshop and we were all the day in that place where my agony was slow…. but although i tried to be better i wasn't. Later after leaving the moto we returned home. I felt bad trying to even sleep… and I fevered all night feeling my head bigger then it was!

June 28, Wednesday - After arriving at the moto workshop and daryl offers me many things, that being well I always deny me to feel a little better only a little i want to stay to enrich my knowledge but this damn Dengue doesn't leave me. I decided in this moment that only I need my forces to decide to do it that has been coming e myself Decidi then that single I need my forces to decide that to do what I have ben doing almost all my life…. I decide… clear and thinking I went to the Medellin General Hospital.

There a doctor attended me after seeing me in a hopeless state and left me in Observation… I wonder how long I must stay and how to advise Daryl where I am. Later after calling Sebastian I feel better but still a bit bad to be alone and without knowing if what I am doing is correct. Especially as I have no money to pay. But soon this does not bother me, only needing to follow the doctors orders… later passing through several medical checkups… finally I was in a room where Daryl arrives all suprised and scared without knowing what was happening to me. Dayl went away and said that he would return but didn't appear.....

June 29, Thursday - I understood that this day was the worst because the Dengue was in my body and playing with my blood… Daryl was next to me the hours he could be telling me of all he knew of this sickness but I don't know in this moment that I want to know more about it also thinking that i need to know what is passing through my body. I believe that many people pass away without knowing the exact reason.

Ok, so if I must go by this illness then it is ok as that is life... I think over all that I have done in my life until now, everything i have been able to know, i believe i am still missing a little more ....... but I have a clear vision of life to be content that nobody is thinking of me in this state of melancholy and my family what will happen with them? I do not know, but believe to be content to meet the people that I left to see and that I am returning to see and to stay with them, and now I am even further apart and if I meet them to speak of things that never I knew to say and also to learn something more of them, also I am in a stage of my life where I am learning many things that spiritual things are far better then material things sure from the experiences that they live and that every human chooses their destiny and that this was mine undoubtfully...

June 30, Friday - Following the orders of the doctor i tried to be better but the nights they were long and the days infinite and i only want to leave here...when will someone arrive and tell me I can leave... in what moment??? A day more... almost recovering my sleep The social worker comes looking for me to charge for the servises of the hospital but I explain as before that I have no money, but they don't believe... my question is where is the human side of the people???

June 31, Saturday - Another examination, that isn't good enough for a lack of blood. What does the laboratory do after with the extra blood? Throw it to the sewer or they keep it is what I wonder? With my platelet count by the floor I continue feeling a bit weak... I realize while looking around that I am seeing double images and my muscles pain at the slightest movement... I don't know how to sleep nor am I able to sit for very long...

July 1, Sunday - More examinations to see my blood continuing to liquify. I now have only 62 platelets... and so what are they waiting for that they leave me completely I don't know??? Nobody explains to me nothing...

July 2, Monday - After several nights I finally find sleep and have rare dreams... but i feel a little better but with strong pains at moments in my body... the day goes by and Daryl tries to animate me all the time... and I think tomorrow is going to be a rough day... since I don't have money to pay with...

July 3, Tuesday - After which a nurse says to me that the great day has arrived, the day of medical discharge the day so waited for by the patients... I feel it is going to be stronger then the sickness... I try to make it understood to this group of people that my conditions they don't permit me to give them what they demand and they want to make justice where there is no injustice and so they only listen to themselves... and to be treated like whatever thing without importance for what I am feeling in this moment it all goes to my head... another time. Now I question what is worse, the Hemmoraging Dengue with a contract of death or this whole ball of people wanting to fullfill their system????

July 4, Wednesday - Waiting for nightfall in Medellin, Daryl takes the moto for the fourth time to the workshop and hoping that it is to be the last, for tomorrow we leave without a problem... _ _ ______________________________________________________ _ _
