My son’s most recent follow up visit and blood test was normal. He was very brave to walk into the lab for the test even though he was scared… but when he saw the needle, he shouted “No, No, I know its pain”, and tried to use his other hand to push it away even though everyone tried to tell him that it is only like an antbite. Eventually, he had to be held down rather forcefully to get it done. Poor fellow. I don’t blame him. When he was at the hospital, he had 4 blood tests done within 7 days. After that 2 more in follow up visits. There was also the iv needle which had to be changed twice. Ouch! I think by now he has developed a phobia for the needle. He never was frightened by injections before.
I remember at the hospital, the nurses and doctor, told him not to look. “Look at mummy. Look away. Don’t look”, they said to which my boy cried “ITS THE SAME!!!!!” lol. Now who are they trying to kid eh?” Whether he looks at the needle or otherwise, he knows the pain is just the same. It was rather hilarious but of course at the time I was not laughing.
We are glad he is alright so we took him out to eat. We went to Madam Kwans, and he had Fish and Chips and Banana Split. Ooohh! And I had a huge bowl of Curry Mee and Ice Kacang after that. The Curry Mee was like fire! I doused it with the Ice ABC. Fortunately my stomach withstood the abuse. 😛 It is like my life recently. So much fire. At least now, we have some Ice to douse the fire.
Hopefully, things will stay normal from hereon.
