6.15am...Subh @ d surau n b'fast time for practical students
It was nearly midnite last nite when I got a call from Mak...Abah is not feeling well n would like to seek some medical attention. Drove both of them to Klang's Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital ER [Emergency Room] n Abah was sent to d Asthma Room immediately. It was d wee hours of d morning but few patients were oredi there undergoing treatment...some as young as 3 years old. Something to do with our air quality perhaps.
All in all, Abah was looked at by 2 or 3 medical officers n alternating between Asthma Room n Bilik 1 Treatment Room. Finally, one of d doctors decided that Abah can be admitted for further observation. D doctor's decision was made at about 6am...more than 5 hours since we arrived...n there goes our sleeping hours. Anyway, Abah pointed out that 5 hours is a big improvement compared to d past...go figure.
Went to class later n informed d students that if ever any of them made it as a Minister of Health...please...please...a revamp of its services is totally in order. N of course...d story on smoking n its side effect...Abah used to smoke n now it is affecting him...badly. Your doa for him to recover soon is greatly appreciated.
Klang's not so glamorous ER. We reached here at about 12.30am. BTW, that Kembara was delivering one accident victim. N he was not d last one to arrive while we were there. Things usually get even worse on weekend.
D Asthma Room...d medical officer himself was not feeling well. He dozed off later when no more patients need his attention...ksian dia...must be tiring with d working hours that he put in. Anyway, thanx to him for treating Abah very courteously.
