My wife and I brought our daughter back again to the hospital for another blood test as requested by the doctor. The test results showed that her blood platelet count is lower than yesterday which is a cause for concern. Both yesterday’s and today’s blood count are still within normal range but it is a concern since it is getting lower. Glad to know that the doctor is giving wise advise.
We will go back again tomorrow for another blood test. Hope this won’t turn out to be dengue fever and that my daughter will fully recover soon. If it’s not dengue then it’s measles. Somehow we missed having her vaccinated for it if this turns out to be measles. We still have her vaccination records when she was still a baby and it seems like we missed this one. It can be tough for parents—not just for the child—when their children get sick. She had dengue before when she was about 5 years old in Manila. I’m glad the doctor has not suggested that our daughter be admitted to the hospital—as yet. Hoping it doesn’t come to that.
