FatPaPa got warded....

FatPaPa is down in the month of November....fever followed by blood infection, fluctuating sugar level and pus at the liver which measured about 4cm. Got warded in the hospital for nearly 2weeks. He has since been discharged and is on a dose of antibiotic drip for a period of one month. He will need to report back to the hospital on a daily basis for the drip. Doc have inserted a tube on his arm during this period to aid in the dripping. Early next month he will go for another round of ultra sound scan to see if the pus react to the antibiotic. FatPaPa is now watching his diet more closely so as to maintain his sugar level at healthy range. Well I don't know if you will be reading my blog but just want to pen down ' I know you are suffering but you got to stay strong for our family ok! We have survive the C thingy so this is another hurdle for us to cross over. 加油! '

Thanks our mama(s) sisters and brothers, friends, colleagues and neighbours who have help us during this period. Not forgetting docs and nurses who have attended to FatPaPa. 谢谢你们!
