A Midnight Fiasco

It was midnight when my sister in law called up frantically saying her husband was very sick.
My husband and I rushed immediately to her house a stones throw away. Entering the room, we found Venu's brother-in-law rolling all over the bed with a bout of shivering, high fever and stomach ache.
It was a Heculean task to calm him.
He was like someone possessed, sitting up and suddenly lying down on the bed. I was afraid that with the force he was throwing himself on the bed, his head may hit the head rest. I gathered all the pillows and  covered the head rest, but all at once he moved position and was at the foot of the bed. Immediately I gathered the pillows and arranged them at the foot of the bed.
An ambulance was called and he was rushed to the hospital.
Various tests were taken and by morning 9 0' clock, Saturday, he was discharged.
He had  urinary problem and given some medicines.
After returning home, he said that he did not remember the midnight drama which had driven everyone up the wall.
