Scornful Weather

Scornful Weather

The much scornful haze is back again, no thanks to weeks of drought. It is very dry, hot and humid now.  My kids and I are starting to get itchy nose, blocked nose and phlegm easily now, caused by the haze and the extremely hot […]

Joint Consultation With Pediatric Nephrologist and Pediatric Urologist

Joint Consultation With Pediatric Nephrologist and Pediatric Urologist

I consider today my ‘lucky’ day.   Because I did not think that I would be able to speak to the person whom I wanted to speak with.

A good friend of mine has so kindly helped me to obtain a referral letter for Cass to see the top pediatric urologist and pediatric nephrologist at HKL, scheduled for this week.  It will be a joint consultation to see these two specialists.  What I have is only a referral letter from the head of pediatric  surgeon from one of the government hospitals in our country to this pediatric nephrologist in HKL (Hospital KL).  No dates and time were given in writing.  My friend had verbally told me the date and time.  She even came over to my place to pass me the referral letter.  God bless this friend of mine with a heart of gold.

So today, I braved myself for at least half a day to get through to speak to the correct person-in-charge at HKL.  I do not have a very good impression of government departments and general hospitals in our country. I was right.  This HKL is so huge that no one seems to know each other.  After over 20 calls with my cordless phone going dead about four times, over a period of 1.5 hours, I finally managed to speak to the person-in-charge of appointments at the Urology Clinic at HKL.  But she sounded very ‘cincai’ and I have this uneasy feeling that she has not really written down my  name in the appointment book.

Anyway, I will pray to God for his help to get us the appointment to see these two doctors and I pray that the findings on Cass’ bladder issue will be favorable to us.
