Life is what happens to you while you’re busy planning something else. Indeed!
2020 will stay in our memories for long if we manage to go past it! July 2020 was strenuous month for us (me and my wife Neha). While we were still reeling from the shocking death of Sushant Singh Rajput, we had few important things to look forward to. The first two weeks of July saw the release of our two technical books, “Parallel Programming with C# and .NET Core” by BPB publishers and “Visual Studio Extensibility Development” by Apress. Neha was looking forward to app innovation challenge that our honorable prime minister had thrown. We both were planning to participate in annual Microsoft Hackathon and write articles and blogs to promote our books in the subsequent days. That is when Corona struck us! This is life! Mysterious, unexpected and full of surprises!
This blog post intends to document our battle with COVID-19. We hope it will help our friends and readers get a better understanding about this deadly virus and learn from the mistakes that we may have made and what all we did to conquer it. We also sincerely hope that this post answers a lot of frequently asked questions that comes in everybody’s mind about Corona.
The most difficult part of sharing this experience is thinking where to begin the post from. Had I known, where and how I got Corona, I would have probably not got it in first place. So, let me begin it from the day when the test was conducted and then I will jot down the experiences after and before that.
Day – 0, (July 16th 2020)
Getting the test done is itself a mini battle. As of writing this post, doctor’s prescription is required for the COVID-19 test to be conducted. The thought of visiting a COVID-19 test center can cause jitters down your spine as that’s the sure shot place to find the virus while waiting for your turn to get tested. The same thought had engulfed us when our Bhaiya who is an eminent doctor (Dr. Utkarsh Shrivastava) asked us to get CORONA test done. We got the prescription from him digitally and trust me that’s a huge help during these times when you don’t wish to step out. So, we had the prerequisite of prescription in place. Neha had absolutely no symptoms, but Bhaiya insisted that both of us get tested. Now, we did some research and found that there are home sample collection service for COVID-19 testing as well.
We called him and fortunately he was heading towards our society only for someone’s test sample collection. He came in an hour without any PPE kit. He wore the face shield and gloves and was all set to collect the sample. He took out a swab which was more like an extended ear bud. He asked me to open the mouth and inserted the swab and rotated it on my throat voraciously for 30-40 seconds and then inserted that swab in a liquid and noted my details on the sample. He also collected our AADHAR as the identity proof. The test costed Rs 3.5K per person. He left after taking the payment and Neha continued with her daily chores. I was already unwell and had fever around 99.8 F and had severe headache and body ache, which wasn’t disappearing despite taking Dolo 650. I took rest during the day. By evening my sense of smell and taste had diminished though wasn’t completely lost, so I was pretty much sure that I was infected by COVID-19. I attended customer call for 2 hour in the evening as it was already planned. Post that I sprayed perfume, room freshener as well as sanitizer around but couldn’t smell or recognize any of them, so I knew that writing is on the wall. That’s when I decided to isolate myself. I stayed in my bedroom and shifted my wife to another room thinking that she may get away since she had absolutely no symptoms till that day. The 2 hour call took toll on me and hence I tried to sleep around 10:00 P.M. However, you don’t get the sleep when you want it the most! So, I put on the Pluralsight course on Xamarin, thinking this may either teach me something or force me to sleep. As expected, I learnt for a while and slept to end day 0.
Day – 1 (July 17th 2020)
My health had deteriorated when I woke up on the 17th July morning. Headache, body ache, sore throat, complete loss of smell and taste accompanied with fever around 100F were the prominent symptoms. My wife also woke up with high fever (101.7F) and cold shivers. We had tea and biscuit and then rested till lunch time. The Corona Test report normally takes roughly 24-48 hours to come for home sample collection, so I started following up on the report. Couple of hours later a WhatsApp message came to my number. I opened it with my fingers crossed. It was Neha’s Corona test report. To my utter surprise and shock, it read COVID-19 positive. “Positive” is such an affirmative and optimistic word, but Corona has made us scare this word as well. Though she had fever today, she had absolutely no symptoms when her test was conducted and we had got her tested only because doctor wanted to be sure. What we were running away from for last 4 months had caught us and this feeling was extremely depressing. I broke this news to Neha who was talking to her mother at that time, which was great as she had a calming influence and acceptance came instantly. My report had not yet come and I was promised that my report would be shared by evening or by next morning. We behaved responsibly and informed our society and where we had been in last few days. Fortunately, we had not been stepping out so there wasn’t much for anybody else in the community to worry. Our house was put into quarantine. We also updated our Arogya Setu app with the fresh assessment. We began looking for home care packages to get treatment for COVID-19 and zeroed in on Care home Suraksha package by registering in the hospital website. The package included 17 day doctor consultation, home sample collection for blood tests, medicine delivery at doorstep and bed availability in hospital in case of emergency . I called them up to get the treatment started. They mentioned that you ‘ll first receive a payment link. Post that doctor consultation would start. We cooked simple daliya as dinner, watched Breathe Season II to keep the mind off COVID. The series is interesting and Abhishek Bachchan has acted brilliantly. However, it’s a dark series and not something you wish to see when you are down. So we switched it off and ended the day.
Day – 2 (July 18th 2020)
We woke up late around 10:00 A.M. I followed up with Care Hospitals and also for my COVID report. Around 1:00 P.M, hospital shared payment link in which I made the payment of 9k instantly for 17 day video consultation. We were told that video consultation would be done in an hours’ time. Meanwhile, my COVID report also came as positive which was expected. We talked to our family doctor and he told us:
- Not to worry
- To stay positive and happy
- To rest as much as possible
- To keep hydrated
- To eat healthy and frequently
- To gargle with Betadine or salt at least 4-5 times a day
- To inhale steam
- To drink hot water
- To continue with Dolo 650 till the doctor consultation for COVID happens
- To keep monitoring temperature and oxygen saturation levels and ensure its above 90 at all times
- To start doing breathing exercises, Pranayama, Anlom, Vilom
We updated our family and relatives. They were very supportive and had calming influence on us that we shall overcome this virus in few days and asked us to be positive, happy and take rest. All of them had a few tips for us 😊. I also broke the news to my friends and now when I look at it, it was a good decision as I got a lot of calls and WhatsApp messages from many of my friends, which was great as I got to catch up with a lot of my old friends and had a good way to stay positive and pass the time. They suggested a number of series like “Panchayat”, “Kota Factory”, “Breathe” etc. to binge watch and stay joyous. However, due to the network issues I had to step out of my bedroom to balcony area to take the calls and that prevented me from taking proper rest. That said, the friends were motivating and supporting and so my mood was upbeat. Apart from these calls, I was also on unwanted call for 3-4 hours with Care Hospitals. Even after making the payment we didn’t get the call for doctor consultation. We were continuously told that coordinator would call in an hour, which didn’t happen. The night came by and Neha and myself were without any medicine or line of treatment determined. I was extremely tired as I was in calls through the day. So, I watched Panchayat series for a while and then dozed off.
Day – 3 (July 19th 2020)
We woke up to a phone call. It was a call from the online coordinator from the Care Hospitals. So, finally after 40 hours of registering and 20 hours of making the payment, we got the call from the coordinator. My wife received a Zoom call meeting link. Both of us had fever around 99.8F. I had sore throat, headache and body ache. I had lost the sense of smell and taste completely. So, these were the things to be discussed with the doctor. The doctor was not a listed or famous doctor. She had more of a psychological role than the medicinal help as she prescribed the same medicines that our family doctor had prescribed. She didn’t even prescribe gargles and steam which our family doctor explained are two of the most important things to fight Corona. She just made us feel fine and said not to worry and that we would be fine with rest and medicines. Both our families has a number of reputed doctors working in eminent hospitals. They all called us and gave us confidence and checked our line of treatment. The medicines that were prescribed to us are as follows:
- Dolo 650 (4 times a day)
- Azee 500 (once a day for 5 days)
- Pan D
- Zincovit (once a day)
- Limcee 500 (twice a day)
- Ascoryl cough syrup
Disclaimer: These medicines are for information purpose only and may vary from person to person. Please consult your medical consultant for medicines.
When we approached the hospital to deliver the medicines (as it was part of the package) they declined stating our locality is too far and hence medicine cannot be delivered. This was disappointing as COVID patients cannot go out to buy the medicines. One of the privileges of living in a gated society is that a lot of essential services are available in-house within the society. So, we ordered the medicines from there. I informed my office. My managers as well as my team was very supportive and asked me to not worry about work and get to full fitness. We cooked together a simple meal of daliya and bottle gourd and that was our dinner. The good part for me was that since I had no sense of taste, I could eat whatever was presented to me without cribbing about the taste. We gargled, inhaled steam and then watched Panchayat series for a while and slept.
Day – 4 to 10 (July 20th 2020 to July 26th 2020)
We again woke up to the Care hospital coordinator call for the video consultation with the doctor. We asked for a reschedule to 10:30 A.M and slept for some more time. The doctor just asked how we were feeling and advised to continue with the medication. One of the key things to monitor apart from temperature is oxygen saturation.
Our family doctor called us frequently through the day and asked for parameters like temperature, oxygen saturation, pulse rate and blood pressure. Due to their continuous follow-up we have day wise record of our parameters. My oxygen saturation was around 94, while Neha’s saturation was better at 98. We were doing a lot of home remedies as well, like drinking hot lemon water, hot kadha, hot turmeric milk. We also drank hot lemon water mixed with soda (Eno) as a number of researches said that help alleviate the infection. We also used lemon juice droplet on the nostrils. This was an experiment but it had great results. We used just one droplet, but that literally burnt the nostrils for about couple of minutes, but for next 20-30 minutes, all our cough was cleared. We had to cook food, which was a big pain and then clean utensils as well. Since I had no taste, I had no craving for food as such and was eating just to take medicines. Post these activities, we were usually tired so we used to just lie down and rest. Most of our day was spent on WhatsApp and phone as there were flurry of calls. Few wanted to know the first hand information and treatment, few wanted to know our well-being, few wanted to increase our morale and few just to know how it could have happened. While our family were worried and were always inquiring about how we felt and symptoms. We had almost the same schedule during this period.
Day – 11 (July 27th 2020)
By 11th day, my fever had gone down and my temperature was around 96F. Our Bhaiya told us that this may be due to dehydration and asked as to drink plenty of water. Sore throat, weakness and body ache along with no sense of smell and taste were the prominent symptoms at this time. Most of the home quarantine patients recover in 8-10 days and maximum by 14 days. The care hospital doctor on video consultation recommended us to get blood tests done. The tests were CBP, IL-6 and D-Dimer. We consulted our family doctor and they advised to go ahead with these tests as they tell the extent of infection, inflammation level and if there are any chances of clot. We invited the home sample collection lab technician and he came in couple of hours and collected our blood sample. Apart from weakness and body ache, I was feeling alright so I worked for few hours, but got tired and sleepy. My wife still had fever. Cooking and utensils were two pain points during this time and my wife did the bulk of cooking as she still had taste and couldn’t afford tasteless food cooked by me. I did the easier work of cleaning utensils, which also Neha did at times while waiting for things to be cooked!
Day – 12 (July 28th 2020)
The day was going as normal. We were feeling alright. My oxygen saturation level was fluctuating between 91-94 and I was updating my health status to my family doctor and family. Around noon time, we got our blood test reports.
My CBC and D-Dimer report looked fine. However, my IL-6 levels were elevated. Just to give the magnitude, normal value of IL-6 is <7, while it came as 148.3 for me and 73 for Neha. Our video consultant doctor suggested, we take Dexona 6mg for 5 days. I told Bhaiya that reports look fine apart from IL-6, so he asked me to share the reports with him. I shared the report and was planning to work on the hackathon. He reviewed the reports and also got opinions from a reputed pulmonologist and an eminent doctor from AIIMS Nagpur. Post that he called back in a while and talked to my wife. I suddenly heard my wife weeping while she was talking to Bhaiya. The unanimous recommendation from Bhaiya as well as doctors he consulted was that I should get the Chest CT done and get admitted as my IL-6 levels were inflated. I started breathing exercises, which improved the oxygen saturation levels and joked that oxygen saturation is better now, but they were not negotiating one bit. Now being COVID positive presents a challenge to visit the hospital. We called hospital ambulance as well as other ambulance services and they were charging exorbitant amounts for to and fro trip. They were roughly charging Rs 1500/- per PPE kit (driver, attendant and patients) and Rs 2000/- per KM which was a huge amount in itself. Fortunately, we found one Police Ambulance service number and they instantly picked up the call. They were only charging for our PPE kits. We agreed and shared the address on WhatsApp with the driver. The control room also called and confirmed the ambulance. That’s a great and commendable initiative by Police and Govt. of Telangana. We called couple of hospitals for appointment to get CT scan and they asked us to reach Emergency ward of the hospital. We informed the community gate that we shall be stepping out for investigations and they sent a sanitation team and guards so that they could trace and sanitize the path we take to the ambulance. They also got us PPE kits, so that we can wear them and step out. The PPE kits were of standard size and fitted Neha fine, but for a 6 foot 1 inch tall guy it was too small and so once I put on the head gear, I was struggling to breathe and it was really uncomfortable to sit.
We first reached emergency ward of Continental Hospitals and mentioned that we are COVID positive and have been advised to get Chest CT done. The guard immediately came and started pushing us out of the ward and made us sit in the outside waiting area. We were told that CT scan may take 4-5 hours, so we called the ambulance again and went to CARE hospital from where our video consultation was going on. They were quick to note our details and quickly did billing for CT scan and we were sent to CT scan area from a special COVID reserved lift. There were 2-3 patients before us so we waited with the kit on. Finally our turn came. Neha went first and then came my turn. This was the first time, I was undergoing a CT scan and it was an experience. When they moved me inside the machine, my legs touched a structure which fell so there was a noise. “Normally, that structure isn’t reachable”, they said. So I guess not many tall folks had been getting CT scan done there. There were icons on the machine instructing me to inhale and hold and then to exhale. This happened for 2-3 times and scan was done. Immediately after the scan, my first question to the technician was how bad is it and if I need to get admitted. He said, he only saw moderate changes and didn’t see the need to admit. Both of us were happy that we can go home and need not get admitted. The technician came back with the imaging film in a while and said detailed report would be available only after a day. We took the imaging film and went to the Emergency doctor. She had a thorough look at the imaging film as well as blood reports and advised that we should get admitted but they did not have bed, so we should find a bed in some hospital and get admitted. So, our happiness was short lived. We tried to get the medicine, Dexona 6mg which were not available in-house but to our surprise the medicine was not available in the hospital pharmacy also. We then boarded the police ambulance and started our journey back home. We were quiet for most of the journey as we were thinking and contemplating next steps individually. After a while, we both realized the tension and tried to cheer each other that we will reach home and think about it. The ambulance driver seemed to be in a hurry and was speeding equally on the road, speed breakers and potholes. This made us dizzy. We reached home in a while. We entered inside home, got rid of PPE kits and then sanitized ourselves and then sat and discussed the next steps. Neha clicked the pictures of my CT scan imaging film and shared it with Bhaiya for his review. He got is reviewed and mentioned that there are mild changes only and overall it looks good, but still recommended that we get admitted, possibly on the same night. The news of getting admitted got my parents worried and I could make that out from the look of their face. I talked to my manager and he was extremely helpful and said that he will let us know about bed availability in an hour’s time. Parallelly, we googled and binged the hospitals and contacted them for bed availability and private room. We got a list of items that we should be packing for getting admitted from my mother in law. Sharing a high-level list of items that we packed in our individual bags:
- Clothes for 3-4 days
- Shaving and/or dental kit
- Mobile charger
- Empty plastic bags to keep the used garments
- 3-4 Handkerchiefs
- Bathroom sleepers
- Handwash/bodywash/cloth wash
- Glass, bowl, spoon
- Debit & Credit Cards
- Identity proof (AADHAR/Driving license, PAN Card)
- Thermos for hot water
- A blanket or bed-sheet
To relax from the tension of hospital admission, we watched the movie named “The Founder”. After packing our bags, with few leads but no clarity on the bed availability, we decided to call it the day.
Day 13 – (July 29th 2020)
I had a sleepless night and barely slept for 3-4 hours. This is what the thought of getting admitted to a hospital can do to you. We woke up even before the alarm and started the hunt to find two beds. We got few leads of the general ward availability but were looking for a private room. We made few calls to different hospitals but to no avail. Around the same time, the VP of our society messaged us to know how we were doing. Upon sharing that we were looking for bed, she shared couple of contact numbers and we were able to get a confirmation from Continental Hospitals about bed availability as our society had a tie up with them. This was another incentive of living in a good gated community as getting a private room is a big deal at this time. But this was only half the job done. Reaching the hospital was still something that had to be planned. We tried a number of ambulance services but none were available immediately while few were demanding exponential rates. Again during this time, the VP of our society suggested if we can drive to the hospital. I agreed and arrangements were made for us to leave. We wore the PPE kits, carried our luggage and CT scan films and started towards our car. The security team sanitized the path we took and also the car doors once we entered the car. We then drove towards the hospital. This was so better than travelling in the ambulance. Being in ambulance itself makes you half sick. In 5-7 minutes, we reached the hospital and entered the emergency ward to get ourselves admitted.
The Hospital Admission Experience
It was around 10:45 A.M when we got registered. We informed that we were Corona positive and so the doctors who were roaming around as astronauts (wearing PPE kits) asked us to take off our PPE kits as we would be uncomfortable which we were. We threw the PPE kits into the garbage bin and sat on the benches waiting for our turn. There was a prioritization of patients based on the age and symptoms of the patients. While we sat, it was really sad to see and hear the suffering and pain people in the emergency ward were going through. After a while, our turn came and they checked our vitals. My Blood Pressure had shot to 158/92 and pulse was above 100. My oxygen saturation had increased to 98 which was great as it was not going above 95 at home.
TIP: While checking your oxygen saturation via an oximeter, ensure you wait for 30-40 seconds, before reading the value.
Next up, they pricked an artery of my left hand near waist and collected the blood for tests. Trust me, it pained like hell. While we waited for the report, other patients were being triaged. Some were being put on oxygen while others on IV. Due to unavailability of beds, the hospital staff are doing proper triage and grant admission only if their admission criteria is met. We received numerous calls and WhatsApp messages from office, insurance provider, family and friends inquiring about why we were getting admitted and what were the complications. The financial consultant of the hospital came by and mentioned that we need to deposit Rs 1Lakh/patient to get admitted as caution money even after insurance, as per their management policy. After discussing with insurance provider and managers, I made the caution money deposit. After some negotiation, I paid Rs. 75K/patient so paid Rs. 1.5Lakh for me and my wife. It was already 2:15 P.M and we were hungry. We followed up multiple times to get the lunch and around 2:45 P.M, lunch was served. About half an hour later, our attending doctor came with the blood test reports and said that my Creatine level was elevated, so I can’t undergo Pulmonary Angiography (PA) which they were planning for us. Also, since it needed 6-7 hours fasting, the test shall be conducted later in the night. They then put the setup for IV and collected 4-5 test tubes of blood for some other blood tests. It was already 4:30 P.M by this time and my phone battery died. I followed up a number of times with the staff to admit us. It was already almost 6 hours since we were sitting in the Corona emergency ward. We waited for some more time and after that our ECG was done and after another 30 minutes a nurse came by to finally shift us to the hospital room. I got the luggage from the car and followed the nurse. Around 6:45 P.M we were in the room.
We just entered and rested as we were extremely tired. A flurry of WhatsApp messages, voice and video calls followed as soon as my mobile was switched on. Within a short while, an astronaut like nurse came over and gave us blood thinning injection to prevent blood clots and other medicines (antacid, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinconia). Within 15-20 minutes, dinner plate comprising of salad, chatni, curd, dal, vegetable, rice and chapati was served to us. They insisted for PA test, but we didn’t want to undergo this test as our chest CT was fine (as advised by our family doctor). Within few minutes, a technician came by and collected our nasal and throat swab for Corona test. Then a nurse came and took our Blood pressure and oxygen saturation. I was put on IV. Post taking medicines, we made few video calls to our family and then ended our day.
Day 14 – (July 30th 2020)
Sleeping in a new place is challenging and I was already awake around 5:00 A.M, when a nurse came and gave an injection. I looked outside the room for a while and read news and checked my emails for a while. While I was doing so, breakfast was served. It comprised of couple of Idli and a wet upma. Post breakfast I took medicines. This was the clear advantage that medicines and food was available on time without any hard work. I dozed off for a while and woke up around 1:00 P.M when the doctor knocked at our door. He made me walk around the room and then measured my oxygen levels, which were alright. He then told me that my kidney tests were a little off but other parameters are fine. And what’s more my COVID test report was negative! That was a huge relief. I still had sore throat, tiredness and body ache so he said that they will investigate further on these but mentioned that I need to rest for a week more based on reports. Since blood tests need fasting, they mentioned that tests would be done the next morning. I broke the news to my family and friends and all of them were happy and relieved. My wife unfortunately still tested positive and hence few more tests were conducted by taking additional blood samples. This result kind of proves that I was the culprit who got the Corona first and then infected my wife! I took the shower, had lunch, took the medicine and responded to a flurry of WhatsApp messages and then closed my eyes for a power nap. I woke up and participated in the Microsoft Hackathon from my mobile 😊as 11:59 P.M was the deadline. Working on a mobile device is challenging and took a lot of time and I didn’t realize it was 2:45 A.M by the time I slept.
Day 15 – (July 31st 2020)
I was fast asleep when a nurse came to collect my blood sample and then injected me with a blood thinner and handed over the medicines. I slept again after she left. After a while, breakfast plate arrived, but I continued to sleep. I woke up after a while, took a shower and then had the breakfast. After a while doctor came and said that I was deficient in Vitamin B12 and D and that may be impacting my recovery. I asked if I could resume work and doctor advised to rest for the week if possible. I was put on IV with vitamin B12 post lunch. My wife was still positive so had to be isolated and I got an additional task of cooking and other household items. Around evening time, we got our discharge summary after insurance provider completed its paperwork formalities. About 45% of total amount was paid by insurance while I was required to pay the remaining amount. We came down around 9:30 P.M and I was handed over a COVID kit comprising of surgical masks (100), N 95 masks (2), hand sanitizer (2), oximeter (1), thermometer (1), surgical gloves (10) and a face shield. Most of these things I already had, but I was still required to get it for Rs 6.5K. A dietitian came and shared the diet plan that she recommended.
We came down; brought medicines as prescribed for next two weeks. Informed our community security about our arrival and drove back to home. After we settled down, we introspected how we could have possibly caught this virus. The last part of this blog summarizes our outdoor activities and how we may have probably been infected! Everyone who ever spoke to me had just one question “Kaise hua?” (How did it happen?)
Like all law abiding and responsible citizens, we had been under lockdown. We were not stepping out even for evening walks in our society. And if we had to step out for whatever reason we were cognizant to sanitize our contact points and take the shower immediately. We were sanitizing milk packets, Amazon packages, grocery as well as vegetables before consuming it. The idea was to stay home and safe and avoid going out unless absolutely needed. Unfortunately, this need came knocking our door by means of our bank and we had to step out to fetch few important documents. Like always we wore 3 layer cloth mask and then inverted handkerchief to cover as much face as possible.
We drove about 25 Kms to the bank. The security guards were diligent in checking our temperature and then asked for Arogya Setu App status and post that only entry was allowed to us. They had a sanitizer dispenser and had seats arranged following proper distancing. After completing our work, we came out. We saw few beautiful plants and pots and stopped by to get them. A lot of folks there did not wear mask and weren’t following social distancing. We bought pots only; kept them in a carry bag and put them in the backseat of the car, sanitized our hands and drove to a grocery store. After an hour of shopping grocery for almost a month with masks on, we drove back home. And now that we have tested positive, below are few of the possible reasons for our infection:
- The cloth mask may not have been effective. Based on my research, I would recommend only surgical or KN95 mask (without valves) if you need to step out. If possible, use face shield also. Mask Protection Efficiency displays the efficiency of various masks against virus and is shared by a reputed doctor with us
- I receive and make a lot of calls and its possible that my mobile may have acted as the carrier. After reaching home, I may have used phone without sanitizing (When you sanitize a thing n number of times, at times you don’t recall if you have sanitized it recently or not)
- Due to lock-down, I have not had the haircut for a very long, so had very long hairs. It may have acted as a carrier as I may have unconsciously touched my hair or by default they reach my eyes.
I would like to thank our immediate neighbor for their exceptional help and support. They took pains during this difficult time to find us medicines and also served us delicious and healthy breakfast and lunch. It took us numerous tense nights, hundreds of calls, multiple visits to hospitals, medicines, tens of prayers and a lot of forced rest to fight this invisible and deadly virus. Worst of all, you don’t realize while you may be getting infected. So, the best and easiest way to prevent it is to #StayHome #StaySafe. If you need to step out, use a good quality surgical or KN95 mask (without valve) and maintain social distancing religiously. Keep safe guys!
PS: Only positive thing from these 15 days is that I lost 4 kg 🙂
