Home from the hospital

On sunday afternoon I was taken to the hospital from my school by ambulance. It isnt as bad as it sounds, I was just really lethargic and had a major shaking episode which concerned my roommates.(so glad i have roomies who are concerned about me). Anyway.. I was taken to YNH childrens hospital and was admitted. I had a four day hospital stay. I was asleep most of the time. The doctors concluded that I caught something which my immune system (or lack there of) couldnt fight off by itself and they administered additional antibiotics. I was discharged on Tuesday and now am home in New Jersey resting. My doctors advised me to rest and drink gatorade while i recover. I plan to return back to school on Monday.
