J'aime la musique.
Parfois, je tiens à vous asseoir et jouer de la guitare.
| SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13
Bonjour! Comment allez vous? (How is it going for you?)
I went to my French class on Saturday (yesterday), having missed out on the Saturday before because I had severe malaria and an inflammation.
Last weekend, after completing my dose of artesunate and fansidar, I realised that I had a swelling.
I texted my medico friend HM, the crocodile man, and he said I should get some antibiotics.
I got some amoxicillin and applied VICKS vapour rub to the swell each night after I had my shower.
After a few days I was back to normal.
Of course, I made sure I had enough good food (thanks to my step-mother and sisters) and drank a lot of Milo and Milk.
More than 10 years ago when I was very sick I was privileged to have a schoolmate as the trainee surgeon at Wewak General Hospital, in my hometown, and I got a lot of medical advice from him.
One of that was, if you take good care of your body your body will not have too many problems.
And to take good care of the body includes eating good food, getting enough sleep and keeping your body fit as in exercising.
Anyway, back to my French class.
As I was going to class, I felt this sharp pain from the inflammation shooting up into my stomach.
I could not stay for the whole class since I was very uncomfortable with the pain.
I excused myself and had to go home and get more antibiotics, more painkillers (Panadol tablets) and rest. Boy, the pain was so strong that I thought that something must have torn inside.
The fever that developed also had symptoms like those of malaria: very dry throat, desire to vomit and rising body temperature.
While at class, we learnt the use of the PRONOUN PERSONNEL TONIQUE.
As in the sentences:
Moi, j’aime la musique et les livre. (Me, I love music and the books.)
Ma soeur, elle, elle, aime le sport, le volleyball. (My sister, her, she loves sport, volleyball.)
Mon frère, lui, il aime le cinéma. (My brother, him, he loves the cinema.)
Until next time,
