The Crucifix In The Leg

After staying in the hospital for three nights, my sister was discharged this morning.  The bill came to RM7,395.00 without any insurance claim.  On the other hand, a patient in the same room with my sister, she broke her ankle too but her bill came to RM11,000 because she has personal accident insurance.  :)  But of course, the difference could be due to different surgeons.....

Anyway, all is well...... she can now move about with one leg.... using a four-legged chair for mobility.  Thank God for my mum, she will tend to my sister's needs..

My sister can still joke about it... she told us that she has a "crucifix" in her leg now.... and she told me to put up her picture in my blog.... "Wanna ask for donation or not?"  I asked her... and we LOL over that... 
The "Crucifix" in her leg.... 
My sister who who cannot sit still...
is now confined to 3 Months NO Driving! 
(kwai-kwai sit at home now)

  1. Good grief!!! That looks a lot worse than mine! I've got six screws too... Hope your sis will get well soon. Should be able to get up and about a couple of days after the surgery. Mine was the arm - ok the very next day.
