One of my Indonesian friends' daughter Yan called me on my cellphone at 5pm. She's studying in Singapore and lives in a hostel. She said she has a toothache and wants me to bring her to the dentist. She has been having this pain for the past two days.
So at 8pm, after our work, Chris and I dropped by her hostel. When I saw her, her right cheek was all swollen. She didn't take her dinner and she was so miserable. I examined her and discovered it wasn't a toothache. Then I bundled her into the car and brought her to see my doctor.
Then Jaymes called to say he needs to talk to me regarding school. So I asked him to meet me at the doctor's which is ten minutes bus ride from our house.
There were many patients queuing to see the doctor. And while we were waiting for Yan's turn, I saw to Jaymes' problems. It's been like this these few days. He has to leave me notes to tell me things or he would meet me somewhere. He sleeps at 10pm so by the time I get back, he's already asleep.
The doctor said that Yan has sinusitis. If someone has sinusitis, the layer of flesh inside your sinuses is swollen and painful, which can cause headaches and a blocked nose. So he prescribed antibiotics and medicine to relieve the pain.
Next we brought her to have her dinner. It was already 11.30pm and seeing that she was staying alone at the hostel, I brought her home to care for her. We went back to her hostel to pack and then came home. I gave her the medicine and by the time I got back to my room, it was 1.25 am.
Read & reply my emails, did this quick post, bathe and sat down to clear my paperwork again. I won't be able to sleep before 4 am...........
