We went to the clinic today to get some medication for my hubby's chicken pox.
First, he needed to be isolated so it was difficult if he went alone. While waiting for the room to be vacant, I filled up the registration form and waited in the car with him as another form of isolation. The system was good...I really liked it!
Anyway, we waited in the car for about ten minutes when our hand phone rang. It was from the reception, informing us to go to the isolation room as it was available. We waited for about half an hour in the isolation room before we were attended by the doctor. The diagnosis of chicken pox was confirmed and we were prescribed antiviral Acyclovir, with some calamine lotion to stop the itch. Boy...was the medication expensive! Even with the medical insurance, it was still expensive. Well, as a physician in Malaysia, I knew that this drug from Glaxo Smith was rarely prescribed due to the price but this time, as a patient, I really understood how expensive it was!
Anyway, my hubby is now on antiviral and I hope his symptoms would improve. For the meantime, he will not be fasting for at least four days as he's required to take the medication every 4-hourly. I am the only one 'puasa-ing'...
Below is my break fast menu for today, the 6th of Ramadhan.
