We just returned from our second trip to Singapore. It was another required visit to renew visas, so it was quick and productive. We were there for three days, but most of our time was spent taking Kylee to medical appointments at Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
To make a long story short, when Kylee was in the Tembagapura Hospital over Christmas, she had an abdominal ultrasound that indicated that she had a sizable gallstone in her gallbladder. She was referred to a pediatric surgeon in Singapore for follow-up tests and, if necessary, surgery. However, after an examination and a second ultrasound, nothing could be found. Doctor Chui determined that what looked like a gallstone was just “a shadow” that occurred during the ultrasound procedure in Tembagapura.
We spent our last afternoon in Singapore near Marina Bay, where the largest ferris wheel in the world stands. The Singapore Flyer is 165 meters high (comparable to a 42-story building) and 150 meters wide. It can hold up to 784 passengers, and promises each and every one of them a spectacular view of Singapore. On a clear day, passengers can see up to 45 miles away, which includes views of Sentosa Island, Changi Airport and even parts of Malaysia and Indonesia. A complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 32 minutes.
Kriste, really awesome story and photos. We are so excited to hear that Kylee is not going to have to go through surgery! Yea! Give her a hug from grandma and grandpa. Also ally and each other! Stress,stress,huh. Keep us up to date, ok..?. Love to all. Gma
So awesome! It looks as though you are all really making the best of it! I absolutely love your blog. Forgive me for not logging on sooner. So sorry to hear of Kylee’s heath issues, very happy to hear she is doing better. She has had those tummy issues off and on for a long time! She is a trooper! Emme says “I miss you a lot” Stay well and keep up this fascinating blog. J
Glad to hear Kylee is OK. Must have been scary. A plumbing truck was at your home this week. You probably already know about it but just in case. Still no offers on our home. Holding an open house today and tomorrow. Suzanne down and across the street now has her home on the market too. She is the French Canadian lady that comes down in the winter each year with her husband. Jeannie is not doing well. I’m very worried about her. She has had a flair up of her COPD and is having a very hard time breathing. Talk to you later, don
