A Visit to the Doctor

Monday, March 8, 2010

Via has been having nasty coughing for about a week now so we decided to bring her to the doctor. Not to her regular pediatrician because it's a Sunday. We brought her to the STI Megaclinic in Megamall. The place was packed with many patients. Luckily there were two pediatricians that day. We were #12 and the pedia was already with patient #8. I was surprised to find a small play area outside the pediatrician's office. So Via amused herself while waiting.





It's funny because the toy was tied to the stool. That didn't stop one little boy from carrying the whole thing out of the play area though.

More children joined her in that tiny area and there were a brother and sister who were like 5 years old and older that were roughhousing. I got Via out of there because even if they don't mean to, they can hurt really small children. It's up to us parents to keep our children safe although I am trying to avoid being a "helicopter parent" as my friend Bex calls parents who hover all the time.

I'm glad P was with us this time because I never know what questions to ask. Since he's studying med, he had so many questions that the doctor was compelled to tell us that aside from being a pediatrician, she specialized in infectious diseases in children and also held a clinic at the Lung Center.

She gave Via antibiotics and Ventolin in case she has asthma that might have been inherited from me. Via can't be diagnosed until she's about 5 or until the time she is able to blow because the test entails blowing into a narrow tube.

I hope she gets well soon. This cough keeps on coming back.

You must tell Via to refrain from night partying too much. Also to stop smoking. Drinking too much alcohol is also bad. You better talk to her boyfriend once and for all.
