My eldest daughter Ariya has been sick with tonsillitis off and on for about the last year. At first it was once every two or so months but lately it has been happening all the time. Sometimes she only has about a week between infections. I have lost count how many times she has had it but it would now be oven a dozen times. We are on first name basis with not only the Dr but also the secretary, the Dr’s Mum, the Dr’s daughter and the clinics cat.
About six weeks ago I decided enough is enough and asked the Dr about getting them taken out. She said it would be easy to organise and that the hospital does them all the time. This being Thailand (The land of photocopiers) it wasn’t quite as easy as that and of course a visit back to the village to visit the local health clinic and get your paperwork in order was necessary first. With that done, yesterday we went back to the Dr who said no problems check into the hospital by 9am this morning and they will operate the following morning (Thursday) so that is what we did.
‘Check in’ this morning consisted of seeing 12 separate people spread over 4 different floors in three different buildings. (Yes, I was that bored that I did count them all!) Three and a half hours later we were all done except that our room was not yet available. So we went to the Laithong hotel around the corner and pigged out on their lunch buffet and soaked up the air con before I dropped Seerung and Ariya back at the hospital. I am typing this at home as I brought Marisah back for an afternoon sleep. I will pack up the rest of what we will need and when she wakes up will return to the hospital.
Unfortunately Seerung has fallen sick today and she isn’t travelling to well. This evening I will send Seerung and Marisah home and I will stay over night tonight and for the next few nights with Ariya while she recovers.Hopefully I might be able to catch up on a few outstanding blogs while I am there!
