Thank You pada yang singgah and few lovely girls that anxiously waiting for my update- so sweet of you all:)
It's the moment when sometimes you'll face a little dugaan-everybody fell sick at the same time in my house. I am the only one standing for the past one week running around to make sure everybody get well and be taken care as good as possible.
It was started with Heni, she complained of fever(after she came back from a Kenduri in Selayang), I took her to the clinic, she was diagnosed with high fever.While the girls were up and running happily, on Thursday i received a call from their Kindy- Mia was down with a very high fever. My husabnd was outstation and I took her to clinic, while Mia was seriously ill, Tia fell sick too and then followed by my husband. We took the girls to Pead at TMC to ensure it was just a viral fever and nothing serious, Thursday to Friday seems like a very long day to me. To avoid the girls from being admitted to Hospital i had to become a 'doctor', i prepared a mattress for them at the living room, thermometer, 100 plus, medicine, towel, cold water and suppository (ubat bontot) at my side. I had to sponge them, took them to bathroom for cold bath when the temperature was too high, gave suppository followed by a fever medicine every 3 hours, forced them to drink every 10 mins. Days and Nights were the same, I slept in the middle with thermometer in my hand, it was not easy to bathe them as it was cold and the hardest was to give suppository- while Mia was always submitted (with tears) to my request to insert the ubat in her rectum, Tia was tough, she answered with all kinds of reasons.With 40 degrees temperature she can tell me " Ubat bontot is not in my list" i was a bit shock to hear an advanced statement from a 5 year 10 months girl- " not in my list" thing;):) With pujuk, justification etc she submitted with tears- it was so sad to see that and i had to do for both and sometimes for few times in a day.
Sunday, while the situation was a bit calm, Uwan came down with high fever, we took her to the clinic and the immediate effect was; her sight became very bad, everything seems to be blurrish to her and she cant' see things. It was very scary and sad, i was so worried. I had to monitor her just like the girls but tougher because she can't see her way to bathroom and she had bad cough at night, so i had to gave water to her every 20 mins etc. Until yesterday it was a long and tough time for me. The scariest she choked on her pill( even after i cut in small pieces) and she lost breath for few minutes until her face was all black, i was so panic, i pressed her tummy, knock on her back, nothing works. I put down my finger into her throat to make her vommit and that didn't work too. I thought i lost her, she can't breath at all but the third time i put my finger down her throat i found the ubat and took it out! Ya Allah it was one of the scariest moment, when an old people is sick, her body will be vary fragile, she can't even swallow a small pill, i pound her pill now and added water so it becomes liquid, walaupun seksa because antibiotic is very bitter but biarlah. But whatever it is Allah Swt always give dugaan yang kita termampu, while everybody was sick Alhamdulillah i am fine, i can take care of them, for that syukur tidak terhingga. Plus, Uwan fell sick while the girls were a bit okay, otherwise how can i handle the situation when they were still with 39 and 40 degrees temperature.
In a time like this family and friend were really wonderful- My sister, brother and niece came with support later, as usual we will hold hands when time gets tough - Ikin my niece sat with me during Sunday night when Uwan was sick, we had a good luahan perasaan- that made me feel very good. My BFF came while the girls were sick, she just stopped by outside the gate, gave me a very tight hugs and kisses, taught me several surahs and she bought something to make the girls feel good. Those are all the priceless and precious things during the hard time.
ALHAMDULILLAH today is calmer, moga semuanya baik2 sahaja, my doa to Allah Swt " kasihilah ibuku dan kasihani lah dia sebagaimana dia mengasihi dan mengasihani ku semasa masih kecil'
After 3 days sakit, the Sun was shining on Saturday. Both can get up and had little fun at the back but they were sick again that night.
While they were sick, Uwanlah peneman setia, this is just a day before Uwan also fell sick. Both sat at the back and ate Kismis Mekah. Sometimes i am very bad at controlling my emotion when it comes to uwan- whenever she sicks my heart will leap with worries.My sister said i should take things easy, i know that but Uwan and me is like a team- only Me and Her last time when my father passed away, she took care of me, supported me all the way until i finished my education and became what i am today. While people would say that is a normal thing between a daughter and a mother but i always feel it super duper special.May Allah Swt bless her with good health and long life.Amin.
Not many picture to share here, this is a little gift from my BFF to my girls- Thanks so much, my bff is also a special human being, as i have written in few entries before, she's the type that- she just give her loves to me without expecting anything in return- she values our friendship very much.
The only food picture i snapped yesterday when situation was a bit calm. The girls been asking me to make "Munchy Honey Cake" from "Tigger and Pooh" series:) I had to settle for this yesterday, i made them Petit pancakes like muffins in a paper cups with lots of chocolate shaved and after that i drizzled with honey maple syrup- they ate 4 each:);)
May Women of My Heart be blessed by Allah Swt always and my doa to all women out there. Alhamdulillah. Take Care everybody, love those dear to you while you still can and give love without conditions as you ll be loved back in many ways and forms.
