Back to motherly me.
First of all, let me say sorry to Laundryamah, Annie, Angie and Angeleyes for not turning up for the dinner. Let me say, I rather show up at the dinner than to be stucked at home with a whiny baby. My lil J was sick since Thursday.
He took his MMR jab last Sunday and we expected that he will get his fever ard Friday, but he got his fever on Thursday. And by Friday, he was so whiny till his nanny gotto call me and asked me to go and pick him up early. But I was stucked in the Agency place till 8p.m. We rushed to see the doctor and she said that his fever shud subside by 2 days and then she checked his mouth. Something else caused the fever. It was major eruption of teeth, 1 lateral incisor and FEW first premolars erupting all at the same time! No wonder he looked like a hamster!
And so the fever episode continued. He was whiny the whole day, cried for no reasons and he stopped taking his milk and any form of liquid. We gave him suppository and the fever went up and down. And finally at 2 a.m, we rushed to the hospital. Once reached the doctor checked and advised us to go for blood test. We’re in the old Assunta building and they’re in the midst of renovating and shifting the old block things over to the new block. Walking in the old block reminds me of my grandma who passed away there last November. And they padlocked all the rooms except for a few that turned into prayers room for the malays. Once reached, J was very curious and looked around. Then the drama started when the girl pricked his left middle finger and another nurse held him tight. They press and press for the blood to come out. And he was CRYING LIKE MAD! Mamamamamamama!!!! My tears came down, Big C started to get worried and asked for the nurse to give Lil J a break and wiped off my tears and of coz lil J’s also. But they can’t. And they continued to press and press and more blood came out filling the small tube. And when it’s over, Lil J was still sobbing and then settled down once reached the emergency ward again.
Doctor Celine asked J to go into the emergency room and checked again, to see if there’s any ulcer in the mouth and then she received a phone call. And she shouted “WHAT??? CLOT?”. Yeah we heard her saying that out loud. We gotto go again, cos the blood taken just now clotted cos J was struggling and the nurse was too slow. Off we walk along the eerie walkway again. And once he reached the room he went EKKKKK?????? He remembered what happened there a while ago. And he started to struggle. This time it was his Dadi who carried him. You can see that his face began to change and he look extremely tired, imagine no solid, no liquid and crying like this for hours and hours.
This is Lil J with his bandanged middle fingers.
We went upstairs and bought Lil J soymilk hoping that he will take it. We experimented and he liked it so we show him that its from the SoyMilk bottle and poured it into the bottle for him, to prove that its not MILK. And he drank the SoyMilk and slept. His lips began to be pinkish again and not super red (like wearing lipstick man!) like during the day time. And the bloood test showed that he dont have dengue, just a lil bacteria infection and eruption of many teeth all at the same time, causing the gum to be swollen and the cranky kid. She gave him zitromax and lil something for the gum.
Once reached home, he woke up and cried and slept and cried and slept. I think a few hours later, we all pengsan and slept till 10am. And the drama went on again. Tired of reading edi? I am tired just thinking about it. It was my niece Jasmine birthday on Saturday and I couldn’t bring her out for a birthday outings and there was a discussion between my sisters on what to do for her, bbq or family karaoke in Midvalley? Seriously my mind wasn’t thinking right. All I hope for was Lil J to recover. Seeing him not eating makes me wanna stop eating too. But he can take biscuits, some chrysanthemum drink and fruits. Just don’t wanna take milk. So I kept feeding him fruits, peeling the grapes into small small bits, but he was storing it in his cheeks, like hamster you know.
We went to my mom’s place and he was better cos his cuzzies was playing with him. I gave him watermelon and he ate the watermelon. Them we went to dinner in Jln Alor and many helped to take care of him while Big C and I ate. I ate like I’ve never eaten for days. And J ate some toufu and drank some water. And then we went home and I tried to force him to drink some milk. And he shut his mouth TIGHT, refused to take it. And I lost my patience; I shouted at him and threw his pacifier to the wall. I’m starting to go coookooo. Big C was clam all the way, he took over and told me everything will be fine soon. And we all went to bed.
I must say, thank god that I have Big C to be with me when all these happened. He was calm all the way and it certainly helped me to cool down. He was shaking when I asked him to put the suppository into J’s buttock and now he’s expert in doing that. Hahaha Who wants Big C to help? And I must say luckily that I have my family to standby. Dad was worried sick of Lil J and he brought the whole kampung to my house on Saturday to see him and they even accompanied us to have our dinner at 10pm.
Back to Lil J, he slept better last night compared to the nights before. And when I left the house (yeah Big C on holiday today *jeles*) and he looked better. He finally drank milk, not much just about 5oz and went back to sleep. At least, he drank milk. I called home and Big C said he was still a lil warm when he sent him over to the nanny’s. I don’t know how’s his condition gonna be like today but I hope he recover soon. I miss his smile, laughter and giggle so much! He lost a lot of weight, you can see his guitar strings and he walked like a jelly.
Last night before I slept, i prayed out loud hoping that he will get better soon. If can, I wanna take it for him. If he gets better I really don’t mind. And now, I’m sick with flu and sore throat. So, you think that the Big Guy up there heard me?
