I really really hate it when Dad keeps things to himself and don’t tell us.
Dad is in hospital.
Apparently, he been having chest pain for the past 1 week but he didn’t tell anyone of us. He had a routine checkup today and he didn’t intend to tell the doctor about the chest pain too. He knew that he will need to go for the operation. He been delaying the operation for few years already.
But the doctor found something amiss when he reads the report from the medical checkup. That is when my dad decides to tell the doctor about his chest pain. The doctor want him to stay in hospital and go for operation the next day but dad was bargaining with the doctor, hoping he would delay the operation till Nov. The doctor simply ignore him, continue to write in his medical records and ask the nurse to arrange a hospital bed for him.
And he didn’t intend to tell us that he is in hospital until I called him on his handphone. We are one family. If you don’t tell us, then who are you going to tell? I understand that he doesn’t want us to worry. But then, as family members, shouldn’t we be present when needed?
Everyone is now asking me why I didn’t know that dad is having chest pain for almost a week. Seriously, I can’t tell unless he says. He look normal everyday at home. So how am I suppose to know something is wrong? Although nobody is blaming me, but it really sucks to know that your dad been having chest pain for a week plus and didn’t tell you.
I hate it when my dad keeps things to himself.
