人穷不能生病: the poor cannot be sick.

it's been a week since I last updated.
very sorry for being MIA.
I was recuperating at home and Mummy was super sick.


Tuesday 12 May 2009

Dr Keoy's back.
He sent me for X-ray to check if my lung infection has cleared so I can go home.
my parents and I were hopeful.
even the nurses gave us the "stayed-in-hospital" certificate.

then...
nurse told us that xray showed infection not cleared yet and I can't go home.
we waited for Doctor to come.

Doctor came.
He said I'll have to continue with the IV or if I wanta take oral antibiotics, it's going to be very expensive.
It's $500 for one week of medication.

oh well.
my parents thought $500 is nothing compared to my misery.
it's a rare medicine and Thomson Medical Centre doesn't carry it.
Papa had to pick it up from Mt E.
and it was the last bottle.


So I was sent home with this $500 a bottle antibiotics and a $6k+ hospital bill.
