Naomi was sick again...

Naomi was down with fever again 3 days ago due to viral infection, could be viral gastroenteritis. Her fever was so high at 38.5c and doesn't really come down.... I was worried sick!

Yesterday was her 3rd day of fever, afternoon around 6pm, her body was shivering, the whole body was so hot and she kept sleeping, Papa Sze, poh poh and I rushed her to hospital emergency immediately and found out her temperature was at 40c at that time! I did blame myself for being so careless, I forgot to take her temperature at home, with this high fever, she could get seizure! The MO immediately admitted her, and this was Naomi's first time introduced to tylenol sepositories (the medicine that insert through bum bum) The Paed came around 9, wanted to put her on drip but I refused to as her temperature started to come down. I seriously don't want my girl to be traumatised! Blood test was scarry enough for her! Naomi was crying so much asking to go home, we decided to be "on leave" from the hospital. We had the doctor to sign the paper and we went home to sleep. And by that time, it was 11pm....

Her fever came back slightly around 4am, I fed her paracetamol and continued to monitor her. Thank god, the fever didn't come back anymore after that.

The next morning, we rushed back to hospital, met the paed, and we were allowed to discharge. Naomi is all cheerful and active and very loud again today!

And in just 1 day, we spent over RM1k for all these... the Paed consultation fee and ward visit was totaled at RM740! My goodness, DSH is supposed to be this expensive????

Thank God Naomi's alright now. Not sure if it's the environment or something as Ashley had viral infection a few days ago too and she also was given the butt butt pill.
But luckily her fever came down and don't really have to be admitted into the hospital.
DSH is quite pricy, the hosp bill for my delivery came close to RM20K 0.0

Hope she has a speedy recovery. Just imagine if there is no insurance, it can burned a hole in our pocket.

DSH is expensive. The Paed is Dr Musa?

Vivianz said...

ruth, huisia, alesia, mybabybay, mum to chumsy : Yeah, it's expensive! I'm glad I did buy medical insurance for her, but I've checked, some of the charges are not claimable though...

littlelamb: thanks! She is all well now.

Ohbin: normally we see Dr Musa if we goes DSH. But that day was raya holidays, so we got another doctor on duty, Dr Soh. Frankly speaking, i don't really appreciate her service.

You're back in Malaysia??? Was going to ask how you're settling down...

Seems like a lot of kids getting sick. Lucas had a bad cough and cold last week. This week, a terrible SORE throat that we had to see a China doctor!

Yeah, be careful with fevers OK. My neighbour's kid has permanent brain damage coz the parents took it easy when she had a high fever.

Lots and lots of cooling drinks and no cookies, ginger, fried stuff for Lucas now :)
