Last Friday, Aliyah started coughing..and I gave her normal puff of ventolin. Not even 3 hours the coughing did not stop.. I gave her more puff.. and still not settled.. This mean her asthma attack come again. So we took her to the clinic. There’s only ONE doctor and there are many patients waiting.. We had to wait for almost TWO HOURS to see the doctor! I taught it’s only in Malaysia the service are bad.. Melbourne are more WORST! My friend just 3 weeks give birth to twins need to see the doctor in the hospital for her baby check-up, end up waiting until FIVE HOURS! Is this crazy or what??#$@ Hhmm.. Back to Aliyah, when we got to see the doctor, the doctor straight away ask me to give another 6 puff of her ventolin, and 5ml of Prednisolone. Usually I gave her 3ml of prednisolone if her asthma attack occurred. so it means her asthma are quite bad. :( Luckily it became better the next day.. The doctor also prescribed her with Singulair – once a day. This is from their website :
SINGULAIR is a prescription medicine used to prevent asthma attacks and for long-term treatment of asthma in adults and children 12 months and older.
SINGULAIR is a prescription medicine used to help relieve symptoms of indoor and outdoor allergies (outdoor allergies in adults and children as young as 2 years and indoor allergies in adults and children as young as 6 months).
Yesterday I started giving her one tablet.. One pack have 24 tablet in it.. and it cost us $58.00 !! What an expensive medicine.. huhuhu.. we’ll see if the medicine really works for her..
I really need to check on her at school, it seems that when she started school last February, her asthma came very often.. She might have played too much and trying to adapt with the school environment..imagine they have 2 breaks, each break for 45 minutes, 15 minutes eating and another 30 minutes of outdoor activity..so basically they have 1 hour of playing!! Patutlaa budak-budak ni asyik nak ke sekolah je!
Alhamdulillah..Today, she’s more better and active as usual..still want to play at the park and running around. Keep asking when she can go to school.. Unfortunately, this Monday is public holiday for us here.. :P At least she can have a ‘rest’ at home..😛
Ok..till the next update.. Good day!
