doctor doctor I am sick.....

Visited Marvin in the hospital today since he was confined in the Medical City yesterday due to reoccurring high fever. Kinda odd coz at first the doctors said that it was dengue and this afternoon they said the dengue is cured but now has Malaria . Weird. Makes me think therefore that it's part of the delaying tactics they have just to prolong his stay there.

Can't blame me for my paranoia.The room costs 2,500 php per day and professional fee is at 4,000php on daily basis aside from the laboratory and medicines. To be fair, the Medical City is definitely a world class hospital and they have one of the best facilities in the country and probably some of the best medical practitioners. But last year, the same thing happened to his dad. It took them 3days to finally arrive into the conclusion that his dad has pneumonia. 3 days for pneumonia ? Isn't that outrageous?

Say they really had thorough  examinations and all, but that long? Well, I just hope they give straight answers as the most annoying thing would be paying 20k or 30k for a few days of confinement for an ordinary pneumonia. sigh

whatever it is, I hope for a speedy recovery for Marvin.

  4. get well soon to marvin!

    but isn't it odd they already experienced the same thing during his dad's confinement pero dun pa rin sya dinala? they seem to trust the hospital's credibility nmn, and when it comes to health, gastos shouldn't be an issue anymore. (hehe! based on personal experience lng po!)

  26. uhm 'pag duda ka talaga, maaaring tutoo nga kasi ako i had to be admitted to the ER section for 3 hrs. i don't know if busy lang ang mga doctors/nurses pero ilang beses ako nagtanong what's going to happen next or should i get the prescribed medication na for me to recuperate at home coz I wanted to sleep after taking their meds there. Yung 2 hours naging 3 hours. Sabi nga ni Andy the blogger, it's called Hotel Ciudad de Medical

  27. those kind of hospitals are very thorough i must agree. but they do things in very thorough ways that they tend overlook the simplest of diagnoses..hehe..but i agree that concluding px diagnoses is tricky. some symptoms overlapse, disappears just to appear the next day... hehe.

  30. ang oa naman! e dati nung nagkapneumonia ako, nalaman agad!

    naaalala ko tuloy yung nagpabunot ako ng ngipin. sabi kaya nya daw. nung tiningnan, sabi nya, complicated daw yung magiging surgery tapos biglang naglabas ng pricelist. :))

    anyway, get well soon kuya marvin!
