Had a hectic week. Having lots of emotional roller coasters. Trying to accept the fact that Joshua passed away, coping with lotsa marking, and at the same time, taking care of LB.
While grieving, I realized something wrong with LB and immediately rushed him to TMC.
Waited 1hr plus for our turn to see GP. He was still positive saying that LB was just down with normal flu. Nothing to be worried about. Was a little relieved. Less than 15mins, nurses rushed us into the examination room, telling us that LB has to be admitted. My heart sank but at the same time, felt assured that he will be well taken care of.
Our staycation started off with his first blood test. It was 10pm and the room was dead quiet. LB sensed it and kept asking the nurse to sshhh. Didn’t cry at all while blood was drawn. It was scary but so proud he was so brave. Night 1, had a good night sleep cos didn’t share the room with anyone else.
On day 1, Nebulizer. 3hrs apart.
X-ray. He took off his clothes on his own. Stood on the stool alone, holding on to the handle , looking at the x-ray machine thinking that it was a camera. He said smile
He was still having difficulties breathing. But he was so brave and cooperative.
Night was terrible because of an inconsiderate neighbour. A super cranky 4 yr old girl who was down with the same thing as LB.
Friends came. LB was excited. Decided to get books for him as entertainment.
I must say that I’m so grateful for everything. For doctor Ang who rushed down at 10pm to attend to LB because she suspected that LB was down with something more serious.
Grateful for the staff at TMC. So professional and friendly. was treated like hotel guests for the 5 days. Nice food too.
For friends who came. Friends came with toys, with bird nest for me… Felt so loved.
For Great Eastern. So worried to have to pay such a big amount for the stay in TMC. On the very first day, we were told not to be worried because it will be fully claimable. Yeah.
For good roommate on the 3rd night. After having a night with the evil girl (her family was evil. Luckily they requested for single room. Kthxbye), we met a friendly neighbour. Cute little baby with his warm family. They were so apologetic for the cries , but hey we understand how difficult it is to handle a sick child.
For having a great great boy. LB is really a fighter. Borned a little earlier than his peers, he is actually a bit weaker. But he is a strong little boy. Didn’t complain at all for the 5 nights, I was bored but the only request he had was to go to the lobby to read and get sweet (tHat he won’t be eating). Heartache to see him going through all these. The image of him standing inside the x-ray room was so clear in my mind. So brave. He didn’t cry at all for the 5 nights. For silly people who said he is 難搞. 你們才難搞.
Thats him after going through the battle. So proud of him.
