My little monkey is back. He is feeling much better now. We still have one more blood test to do for him but I can see that he is feeling much better now.
At the hospital he was very irritable. The nurses there probably thought he was the most difficult kid. At first he was ok but once he learned that the needles were painful, each time they had to change the iv needles oh how he screamed and screamed. Each time he has to take medication, oh how he cried. He was also in pain as he could not sleep properly due to the swelling in his neck. As a result he was extremely irritable. He was in hospital for 7 days altogether. One night I saw him crying softly to himself, tears rolling silently down his face.
When we came home, he was so happy. He made angpows for everyone (even though Chinese New Year was over). There was a message in each angpow. Most of them mentioned “I am happy today. The sun is bright. I am happy. I love you.” He is back to his cheerful, cuddly mode. He is the most affectionate person. He touched my cheek and tried to smooth the lines on my forehead with his hands. He patted my chest and said “Mummy, I will make you don’t so rushed.”
I hope that his blood test will be normal.
To all of you who have written to me, thank you for your prayers and kind words. I find the words soothing, thought provoking and very helpful indeed. Thanks.
You’re right. Nothing beats home sweet home. When is he due for the blood test? The doctors still can’t tell what went wrong with him after having him hospitalized for 7 days? Poor boy. You rest well MG.
Hey….I am sorry to hear about your son’s recent illness. Now I have to go back and see wha you have written. Glad that everything is alright now.
My son was also vomitting and fever but I didn’t really get him tested. So, educational lesson for me now to read your posts.
Hope you are ok. Wishing you well.
I’m so sorry to hear that both your kids have been sick, MG. I hope your son will get well soon. U take care too ok!
Dont underestimate kids. They have a natural resilience and will bounce back to health faster than you expect. Just provide them with a caring and loving environment for them to heal. Take care of yrself too.
