I've been in the hospital since Sunday at midnight. It's already Tuesday now. I have been with lil Miss Khadra in this closed space for about 40 hours now, give or take. There has been loads of visitors, despite the tight H1N1 screening at the hospital entrance. Her Aweewa and family, Aki, Aziezi & Naqib, Khaleeq, Khaleeda & Parmi and not forgetting her Ayah Teh. Even my' officemates came too. (Thanks Linda, Daleena & Norli) So, she actually got some great gifts - a Hannah Montana figurine balloon, a turtle balloon bouquet that has "Have a Speedy Recovery!" on it, a few Hannah Montana books and a High School Musical Yearbook . You would have thought she is living the life here in the
As you already know, as soon as we got our room and settled in , I started sms-ing everyone to update you guys on Khadra. I got the following message from you all the way from Londres;
Plse take care of my cucu. tell her nenek loves her. will doa for her speedy recovery. jaga the sibling too pls
Yes, mom. That's what I've trying to do here.
I have been rooming in with her since admission to take care of her needs. From the morning showers, suap makan, ambil air / blanket / tissue, lap hidung, etc. etc. etc. I am officially her own personal Bibik.
To tell you the truth, mom, I am feeling pretty tired already. I was up at wee hours in the morning to sponge her down and calm her while taking her nebulizer. Have not been sleeping well and the drama... Ayyoh... I am up till my nose already.. She exaggerates everything.. She cries and wails and meronta-ronta when the nebulizer is near. And it does not even hurt one bit - I should know, I have been living with that thing to manage my asthma. She screams at the nurse everytime the suppository is inserted. More meronta-ronta. She would wail and shove the medicine away when we try to drip her nose medicine into her nostrils. I know she is in pain. But, I also know that she is just ber-drama, too sometimes. I am beat. Penat already. I think I need a break.
So, I am going off for a bit for some me time. I am watching Transformers tonight and her Ateh will be the nanny for 3 hours. I hope you won't think I am a bad mom for taking a break. I need it to be a better mom. I know I need it bad 'coz I have resorted to cubit-mencubit as she is really getting to my nerves with all her drama.
