Medical Complication

It is irony that such big hospital dun have wifi... Duhh!! Well, today is another day.. I spoke to the specialist attending to dad.. A Mr Chew, Ms Melati and Mr Simon.. They did an andoscope on him to see whether the airway is ok or not, coz according to Ms Melati his voice quality is in question. So, they have to check whether there is any blockage in his airway.. ALhamdulillah, his airway and voicebox is in gud condition. Coz he can't drink much water so his throat is dried up. Will tell u why he can't drink much in a while..

Then the MD Mr Chew came in to see him. According to him, dad heart is very weak to do anything. They wanna do an anagram but he have kidney problem so thats outa the question. So, for the time being he has to be on medication to make his heart stronger. Once its ok and strong, they can examine it to see whether there are cardiac problems. 20% function is something to worry about, according to the doctor. Adding to that he also have diabetes. So, his kidney and heart condition along with his diabetes is a package for disaster (as Mr Chew said it).. And advance diabetes is also contributing to his heart and kidney problem.

So, in short there's nothing that the doctor can do until his heart condition strengthen. And for the time being, he will have to control his sugar intake and take his medication consistently. Lagi... He have to rest at home and stop thinking about work.. But, the thing is i dun think he can do that. Even when people visit he'll ask about work and they HAVE to answer.. And that's unhealthy for him.. Aside from the sugar intake he also have to control his water intake as excess water can drown his heart.. huh? Drown one's heart? that is the 1st time i hear such thing.. Medical world a wonder that not all of us can explore...

But what worries me right now is that almost every possible treatment or tests that can be done on his heart is not gud for his kidney. And vice versa! But there are a few tests and treatment that they can carry out but will have limited results and outcome.. I just wish that i can do more than just sit and watch...

Dad's constant advice to me right now:
Quit smoking, control ur diet and limit sugar.. Jgn lupa senam!!
