We have been bringing dad to see a lot of doctors, .. cardiology, gastroenterology, multiple blood tests and scanning, go round and round, but dad is still very sleepy and fatigue, but show improvement in appetite.
Today, we were given a reference to see Doctor Usha, a chest specialist. After examined my dad and going through his x-ray and blood test result, we came to a conclusion that on top of some the under controlled sickness, my dad is most probably having depression. My dad don’t understand english, and Doctor Usha talked to my dad in Malay telling him that his health is in good shape, must go walk walk, read some newspaper, watch some tv, go out the room and look at the flowers outside. She shaked his hand when we left.
When we are back at home, my dad seems to be so cheer up already, he smiled and told us the doctor said “I am ok”. And he started to use his wheelchair by himself….
What I am trying to say is that, a good doctor not just examine and read the report, they read the patient mind and help them to walk out the cloudy day.
