A Minor Operation In Hospital

My girl has a small "boil" at her eyelid. It was there for more than a month already.  She has been to two GP already and they have advised her to do surgery otherwise it will not go off.  Since it is now semester break, I took her to see Eye Specialist and he confirmed that a minor surgery has to be done.  Today is the day of the operation... she couldn't sleep well the night before.... thinking of the pain especially after watching ON CALL 36 the night before.  :)

But I know my girl.. she is full of courage even though she told me that she was very anxious and fearful about the surgery...
 She has been very cheerful from the moment she stepped in the hospital.....
I really admire her for that... 
As a mother, I worry...
But she gave me the assurance...
She was taken to the operation room around 10am...
And came out after 1pm....
Seems she waited for more than an hour inside...

While waiting to be discharged, we passed our time hanging out with each other in the room....
Both of us slept... she on the bed, me on the chair.... 
I thought it would take a couple of hours... but no... 
We waited for many hours for the discharge letter...
We were finally "free to go" only by 8pm!
And the bill?
It came to more than RM2K!
Poor insurance....

    1. Well, we really don't like to use them, right? Who wants to get hospitalized... but then it is more or less an assurance that we do not have to pay the hefty bills.... now we are like paying instalments for them...

  11. At least covered by insurance. Because the hospital needed to get clearance from insurance company so once done then they can discharged you. That the case for my Jay who been admitted twice. Took them such long time to discharge us.

    Wish your girl a speedy recovery!

  18. I got goose bumps hearing about eye surgery. I am wondering how this 'boil' happened. I have been going in-out hospitals with both my aged parents until i told myself to stay healthy and take preventive measures. You are such a wonderful and good mummy always!

    1. Not really a good one.. I am also lazy one.. hahahaa..
      Just now I asked the doc.. it is caused by blocked oily glands inside the eye... it accumulates and became infected.. so hygiene of the eye is also very important..

    2. Thanks for sharing the info. I will wash my eyes more often!
