Uncle8888 was down with flu with high fever last Sunday and Monday on one day MC.
BTW, who doesn't have flu with high fever?
After one MC day, Tuesday morning he got up as usual but with some giddiness felt. He went to pass his first urine and then proceeded to brush his teeth ....
Crash got sound (SMOL)
Auntie8888 rushed out and found him lying on the ground with tooth paste foam all over his mouth and she finally managed to wake him up.
Auntie8888: "You know where are you?"
Auntie8888: "You fainted!"
Uncle8888: Hmm ...
But, he still managed to sit up and rested for a while. Nothing unusual felt so he stood up and continue to brush his teeth. After brushing his teeth; while he was washing his face; he fainted again!
This time, Auntie8888 saw it coming but was too slow to grab hold of him!
Crash got bigger sound (SMOL)
His head hit against the kitchen's window wall white tiles.
This time took awhile for him to wake up and Auntie8888 has called for ambulance.
A common flu with high fever that ended up with 4 days stay at Tan Tock Seng with many tests done to narrow down the root cause of uncommon two spells of fainting within half-an-hour.
Brain scan Chest X-Ray Liver, stomach, intestine ultra sound Heart (main suspect) - Two rounds of ECG Stool
Drawing a few tubes of blood for more tests and since he is NPC survivor, doctor included other tests to detect any cancer relapses.
The doctor kept repeating to know how was his urine behavior since he is near 60. Possible prostate cancer may be the doctor's main concern.
Fortunately, all blood tests and other tests cleared.
Assoc Professor who is the ward teaching consultant concluded that the fainting was due to severe dehydration from high fever and causing BP to fall so low to trigger the sudden fainting.
The second morning BP test result was still so low.
Nose and throat swab tests further confirmed it was FLU!
The Moral of the Story ....
Life is fragile.
One incident of FLU with high fever may contain hidden fatal risks for senior citizens.
Uncle8888 did learn something from this incident. Men must take note of falling risk during high fever. The morning first pee will lower our BP. During high fever over the night our body may be dehydrated and causing the BP to drop. The first pee added another drop. That additional drop in BP may trigger the fainting.

McDonald's earnings surge as CEO hails turnaround
[NEW YORK] All-day breakfast and the "McPick2" value promotion lifted McDonald's US sales in the first quarter, enabling the fast food company to score a big jump in earnings released on Friday. The burger chain, which installed Steve Easterbrook as chief executive a year ago with a mission to turn around its sagging business, scored net income of US$1.1 billion, up 35.4 per cent from the year-ago period. The results mark the third straight quarter of earnings growth under Easterbrook, who has put improved customer service at the center of efforts to reinvigorate the 61-year-old restaurant chain. "I'm pleased to report that our turnaround is taking hold," he said in a statement on Friday. "The ongoing investments we're making in running great restaurants and delivering what matters most to our customers are beginning to yield sustained positive results."
Today, one time winner of ToTo JackPot Group 1 and three time winners of ToTo Group 2 shared his lucky story with Uncle8888.
That year in 1988, three of them shared ToTo System 9. Each one contributed three numbers for System 9.
First person: All his three numbers tio (His favourite three numbers)
Second person: Two numbers tio (Anyhow give three numbers)
Third person: One number tio. (He was a newbie in ToTo. He had a few numbers to choose. It was his third time joining the group whenever ToTo JackPot hit $XM to make it worthwhile for the trio to share for System 9)
Regrettably, the third person changed his mind on his last number and pick a different number; otherwise; they could have tio 6+1, Group 1 and Group 2 in the same draw!
HOME as an asset class is NOT what we are thinking when we still have control over our thinking and know how to count it financially. But, when the day arrives and we can't count. It will be totally different and sad story!
There are many known cases of financial hardship of those asset rich people living in landed properties. They just can't let it go even they are suffering now. They rather die asset rich!
HOME can be very emotional and not as easy as we are thinking now as we cannot know how we are thinking in the next 20 or 30 years time living in the same HOME.
For some retail investors, even after few decades of investing, reading and learning in the investing domain, it doesn't really matter as they can't manage to escape from Greed, Fear, Hate and DEEP LOVE!

Uncle8888 asked this guy what is he monitoring and studying now!
Hmm ... after some cut losses and still sitting on paper losses by averaging down Super Group to large position; but forced to cut some losses to sleep better at night. He still haven't never give up on his Super Group.
DEEP LOVE indeed!

Look at the two images closely! What is your thinking now? Should we be seriously over concern about market stock price volatility if we have been managing our cash flow reasonably well enough to meet our liquidity need year after year?
SINGAPORE: The re-employment age of older workers will be raised from 65 to 67 on Jul 1, 2017, Minister of State for Manpower Sam Tan announced in Parliament on Friday (Apr 8) as part of the Committee of Supply debate.
He added that the additional wage offset of 3 per cent for employers who re-employ workers above the age of 65, which is currently in place, will continue to Jul 1, 2017, as previously announced.
EXPANDED RE-EMPLOYMENT OPTIONS
Mr Tan also announced new re-employment options for employees. Noting that employers can sometimes help workers secure re-employment in a related or subsidiary company, the Minister of State said that the law will be amended to allow a new employer to take on the re-employment obligations of the the original employer.
This will be subject to the employee's agreement, and will take effect Jul 1.
And in the situation where re-employment in not possible, the Employment Assistance Payment amounts and age coverage will be increased accordingly, said Mr Tan.
To help employers and workers be prepared for the upcoming changes, the Tripartite Guidelines on the Re-employment of Older Employees has been updated, and will be released over the next few weeks, the Minister of State said.
WAGE CUT PROVISION REMOVED
Mr Tan also announced that the wage cut provision - which allowed employers to reduce wages of workers turning 60 by up to 10 per cent - will be removed from Jul 1, 2017.
He noted that the provision was no longer relevant, as more than 98 per cent of companies no longer reduce wages at 60.
"Going forward, pay should be reflective of workers' job scope and value, rather than their age," said Mr Tan.

Mr Chiang was involved in a well-publicised case in 2009, when people who had paid to attend his options trading seminars sued him for refunds after discovering his PhD was from an unaccredited university.
Mr Chiang said: "I paid the price for that mistake and lost my business and, worse, my credibility among some people...
"But I try to improve myself and I try to grow from there."
Spiking is backed by Quest Ventures and a grant from the National Research Foundation. Mr Chiang hopes to close a $1 million seed-funding round in the next few months to fund expansion into Hong Kong and Australia.
