As a last resort, we called and consulted from Healthway and their medtech advised us to rush my mom to an Emergency Room (E.R.). She was admitted instantly at Medical Center Manila Hospital. She was positive for Dengue Fever. In order to increase her platelets she had 3 bags of plasma transfused. According to my sister, low platelets means you can have internal bleeding anytime.
Blood samples were taken from her every six hours to monitor her platelets. Some blood samples were easily taken and some were not. I hope she can recover soon. Here is her results so far:
Tuesday (before admission) - 30,000
Tuesday (upon admission) - 22,000
Tuesday 6 p.m. - 18,000
Wednesday 12 a.m. - 18,000
Wednesday 6 a.m. - 20,000
Wednesday 12 .n.n - 24,000
The doctor said my mom's slow recovery was due to her diarrhea from the "tawa-tawa" extract. He advised her to only drink water from then on. Hopefully, she'll recover faster. I guess its better to trust the doctor than hearsays and myths.=p
It's my first time to stay overnight with my mom at a hospital. It felt like an ordinary hotel. Price is almost the same too. But I missed home instantly. I missed my pillows, blanket and WiFi.=p Lucky for me, I have 4 other siblings so we had shifts. I can't imagine how homesick my mom is though.
