Last week, Ziyan was not well. He was having yo-yo fever. So we took him to the clinic. The doctor said he also has mild tonsillitis. For the next 3 days, Ziyan had high fever in the wee hours of the morning and we gave him the “SUP”. Heck, I don’t know what’s it called in full 😛 It’s the tablet that is inserted to bring down the temperature.
Then, his temperature went up again Sunday evening and that’s when we took him back to the clinic. The doctor advised that we take Ziyan to the hospital as there’s nothing more that he can do. For a baby to be sick for more than 3 days, it shows that something’s not right. Doctor also advised that we take Ziyad as well since they’re twins.
We went home and I started packing, expecting a few days stay at the hospital. We sponged Ziyan to bring his temperature down. A couple of hours later, we were at the ER. Many patients were children having high fever. A sign that it’s the season where kids fall sick. We had to wait an hour before the nurse called the babies’ name. She checked the stats. It was then again about an hour or so before the dr saw us. They did a urine test for Ziyan. The results would be out in about an hour. Yeah … we were there for hours 😦
Anyway, the urine test showed that Ziyan’s white blood count was ultra high and he was having a viral infection. So, both babies were admitted that morning. It took ages for the insurance to give confirmation before we could get our room. The room was 256 with 2 beds. It was kinda nice as we had two of everything 😛
Oh yeah .. the doctor on duty was Dr. Benny Wan. The doctor on call was Dr. Sanjay Woodhull.
