I’m taking a short pause from my table tennis blog because of illness. I was admitted to hospital last week and diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. Fortunately I was diagnosed and treated quickly, so I was able to avoid some of the really bad complications you can get with the infection.
I am now recovering at home. I need to get plenty of rest for the next 3-4 weeks, so I have to pause playing, coaching, writing and making videos about table tennis.
But I will be back!!
Here’s a lovely photo from this morning, where I had a big bag of antibiotics dripped into my vein and three bottles of blood taken away for analysis. The nurse was reassuring. She said “I’m like a vampire, when it comes to taking blood” and laughed sadistically.
