Achik and pneumonia
It has been one and a half year since Achik was last admitted to the hospital. She is back this time for the same reason. She started coughing last Wednesday and didn't sleep well that night. She was breathing fast. We took her to a nearby clinic on Thursday night and the result was not good. We were given a referral letter, which meant that Achik needed to see a paediatrician. I took her to see Dr. Khairul on Friday and it came as no surprise when he told me that Achik had to be admitted.
Because the rooms were fully booked and occupied that Friday, we only managed to 'check in' on Saturday, after Maghrib prayer. Prior to that, we had to commute to the hospital every four hours for her nebulisation and Oxygen reading.
