Thanks for all who left encouraging words or sharing of experience. (refer my previous post on 'Iman's Speech Disorder)
I may not know all of you in person but yet I feel close. And it's a relief to know that I am not alone facing this problem. At least I know a person or two who I can turn to for information and to learn from their your experience.
Kakak has been absent from school a good whole week last week. She was down with fever and gone thru 3 blood tests. First reading of her platelet (sp?) was 160, which was near borderline. Second reading sent us rushing to Atfal and went straight to APSH. It was 121, under borderline. In APSH, another test took place and it came to a relieving 180. Nevertheless, as were trying to breathe in relieve, her temperature shoot up again Friday night. She's well and going to school today.
This morning, I sent her to school. Normally the caretaker in Atfal would do that. I walked her to the gate and told her I'd walk her up to the canteen. I thought she'd like that. Nebertheless, she refused and told me to just leave her at the gate and she'd go by herself.
I don't know how to balance between letting go and cherish her independence or to keep her like a baby to me forever. I thought a drop or two of tears came out. I don't know for which reason. Maybe for both.
