Mrs. T’s Operation

Filed under: family — Tags: , , — toru @ 4:29 pm

Mrs. T’s operation went well today.  But it is heart wrenching to see Mrs. T all groggy and in pain.  The doctor actually called me on my mobile to let me know that the operation went well when I was at the ward waiting for Mrs. T to be wheeled back .  My heart dropped to my stomach as I thought it was bad news.   All went well although Mrs. T is complaining that she can’t pee.  Mrs. T should be discharged tomorrow – hooray! 

Learnt something today.  Private hospitals in Singapore are like five star hotels compared to Malaysian private and public hospitals.  And never ever book a double-bedded room.  You get no rest when your room mate has an endless stream of visitors. 

Private hospital bills in Singapore can be quite frightening.  For a simple procedure like this – it will cost us S$ 10 k.   It’s not that we can’t afford it – but imagine if you have something major.  A huge chunk of your savings will definitely be gone.  Fortunately, we have adequate insurance coverage which will take care of everything.
