APSH082007 - The Return of HFMD


Aaaahhhhh... finally he's asleep. he's been giving me hard times these few days.

Remember how excited and relieved we were when told that Iman's routine follow-up checkup needed not to continue? That was about a month ago. A little bit less than a month, to be exact. 5 days, to be more precise. Our relief was shortlived yesterday. Woke up to Iman's all bintil2 and bintat2 on his both legs and both hands. And that was after a fever 2 days before. Yep, he got HFMD again.

Like always, my paranoid husband dragged us all to APSH to see Dr Nasir. He confirmed Iman's HFMD and advised Iman not to be sent to nursery as HFMD is contagious. It's air-borne and spreads easily. Which is why I am at home now looking after him. Next week my parents are coming over. Syukran Ya Allah... ada juga jalan-jalan keluar dari masalah ni.

It's not easy. He's been a little bintat monster these few days. Unlike last time, he behaved normally after the spots emerged. This time around he still throws tantrums and whatnots even after he got the spots. Knowing Iman, even when he's in good health, he need extra attention, whatmore when he's not! In short, I've been swearing in my heart to be frank. I had to remind myself times after times about the joy of motherhood and that not all women get the chance to be one. Sabar-sabar. I think I'm gonna read my La Tahzan book today.

Anyway.

While waiting for his turn yesterday, he was running about (like always) and I ran after him (like always). He jumped. He squatted. He ran again. At one time he slipped and fell flat on his face. Nevertheless, he got up and started the commotion again. And 'fell' and 'slipped' on his own will again and again. Not to mention we were almost at least RM5k poorer yesterday. We could've had fried arowana for lunch! He got in the clinic and swithed off the lights, aircond and oxygen suppy for the aquarium.. I tell you.. he may look cute being active but as parents, you may wish for something lesser. As for us, this is what Allah Grants us. A boy with lots to deal with. Mengajar erti kesabaran, pengorbanan dan pentingnya kasih sayang! Had it not been him, I might still be the temperamental me.

Okie dokie, pse pray for us people. For Iman to be well. For Kakak so that she won't contact the disease as well. For me and Mdh so that we'll be more patient dealing with all these. Jasamu dikenang okay! (I sound a bit off-beat kan -> lack of sleep)

yati ~ bukankah rezeki pun salah satu bentuk dugaan kan. contohnya duit. mmg rezeki tp ia menduga kewarasan kita bershoppig mopping kan. kalau dia dok dera akak camnih, lepas dia baik, harus akak pulak yang flat!

ct ~ akak pun banyak lagi kena training bab2 sabar nih. dalam dok sabar2 tu kekadang ada gak akak cubit tu. tp bila time dia tido tu, nampak syahdu sangat. nyesal cubit!

ummi said...

yati ~ iman tak reti buat muka kesian so kalau nak kesiankan dia, time tido ajelah!

nero ~ abahnya kata, iman ni kena jaga ummi dia bebetul besar nanti sbb dia dah torture ummi dia masa dia kecik2 nih.

inaz ~ kiranya kalau dalam keta sebelum sampai nursery lagi dah kena warm-up dulu kan. kasi urat2 longgar sikit untuk 'exercise' dgn anak2 kan! i can imagine!

Salam,

I stumbled upon your blog when I was googling on pulai springs..you recently went there kan for your convo or something? Nice place tak? I am driving up from Singapore with the husband and we are looking for a nice place to chill out. Are there things to do over there if you do not golf? I still cannot decide if we wanna stay for 1 or 2 nites. What do you suggest? Boleh email me at rozas22@hotmail.com? tks dear!
