Trouble Caused By Dengue

I have mentioned in one of my previous posts that my brother in law got sick with dengue two weeks ago. He got confined in the hospital for about 10 days. He is my hubby's youngest brother and so, as their eldest, he was the one who got busy in looking for blood donors and processing of the hospital documents.

I realize that undergoing blood donation requires a large sum of money. In my brother in law's case, he was required to ready at least 5 bags of blood, hence, from 5 blood donors. Each donor is asked to pay for Php2,400 or more ($50), for the blood and physical tests if they are qualified to do such donations. See how troublesome this dengue fever is? That alone is already a whopping Php12,000 out from the pocket. Of course there are other laboratory examinations and medical activities being performed which made the hospital bill reached a huge sum of Php70,000 ($1,450). Whew! My brother in law was so worried, but nevertheless he got the idea of availing some payday loans so he could clear up the bill. Hubby also offered to help a bit and that lightened him up.

There is one thing though that made a positive effect on him after this dengue phenomenon. He lost weight (since he was a bit flabby before). Haha!
