LATEST UPDATE - Killing Wasp killed the 8-year-old girl tonight

Since the wasp attack that happened last Saturday at Batu Kawa, Kuching, the 8-year-old girl passed away at 8.10pm tonight at Sarawak General Hospital, which made the total victim of 3.

The child's condition was not stable since Sunday morning, and she needed mechanical ventilation. However, she started to developed bleeding tendency, such as bleeding from urination, from stomach and from the throat, which is due to the toxins. We resuscitated the child with 4 DIVC regime(which is used to correct the bleeding tendency), however, the child did not seem to improve, and went into multi organ failure. Her kidneys failed to function, and she did not urinate since this morning, and the urea (a kind of waste product which is excreted by the normal kidney) in her body started to shoot up. Because of her failing kidney, we started hemodialysis today at 2pm, with the hope that part of the body toxins can be removed.

Her liver also started to fail as evident by the raise in liver enzymes (blood test).

I've been taking care the child for four days, and I saw the father everyday. He did not sleep for these 4 days, staying awake to accompany his last daughter and his wife, who is currently in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The father has 3 children, and he lost all of them in 4 days, and his wife is still in critical situation too.

I could not imagine how the father felt right now....I saw him crying like never before. I could not stand the situation and I chose to leave the room, I know if I stay another second, my tears would just came like the father...I know we have tried our best to help all the children, but my heart is still aching, and aching and aching...

To the 3 children: May you rest in peace in another kingdom, protect your father and mother...

( I am praying for the mother, please join me in praying that the mother can go through the critical situation, thanks...)

A Very Depressing Day in Sarawak General Hospital...Hornet killed 2 children...

Today has been my most depressing day after one year of working in Sarawak Hospital as an intern. I am currently in Pediatric Department (child), Sarawak General Hospital (SGH). On 3/10/2009, there was 1 family, attacked by a swarm of hornet/wasp bee at Batu kawa, Kuching. A total of 6, mother, 4 children and one cousin were attacked by the bees.

Upon admission to the ward, 2 of the children were badly stung by the hornets, although adequate resuscitation has been performed, they died on the night of admission(3/10/2009). They were only 6 years and 3 years old, died most likely due to anaphylatic shock.

From the history, during the attack, the mother tried to protect the children by hugging them and let the bee attack her back, and true enough, most of the bee stung appearead on the mother's back. Mother was admitted to medical ward, and was later transfered to Intensive care Unit(ICU) as the condition deteriorates overnight. Currently the mother was still in critical situation when I left the hospital today.

The other 8-year-old girl, although she was not badly stung compared to her siblings, however, this morning she developed shortness of breath and required mechanical ventilation. She is currently in critical situation too.

When I faced the father this morning, I felt so upset, and I don't know how to describe my feelings. The father was not around when the attack happened and hence was not attacked by the hornets, but I knew deep in his heart....that he would want the hornet to attack him 10 times 100 times...or even 1000 times more rather than attacking his children and his wife. Tears were in my eyes when I was doing round this morning. He witnessed one by one, the children passed away in front of him, and his wife and the 8-year-old girl has not gone through the critical period yet.

I am praying for the family, especially for the mother and the 8-year-old child that they will go through the critical period soon. I am praying for the father as well that he can accept the fact that whatever happened has happened. May God bless and protect the family...
