Oh, the lack of posts, the most recent hospitalization and medications is because of #3.


Btw, the "dread and fingers crossing that it wouldn't happen but it did" did not refer to #3 but the weak constitution leading to high risk of real/ threatened miscarriage... which I had suffered and gridded through for both Kiddie E and Kiddie J. Juuuust in case anybody is wondering...

On a recent scan, the fetus was extremely active with the whole little being bouncing in regular intervals. E thought this might means equals boy... until the gyn said the baby was having hiccups.



Kids say the truest things

Since returning from hospital, I have been taking lots of medication including one jab a day with a size 23 needle, injected about an inch into the top outer quarter of my butt.

Kids found it fascinating to see E cutting the rim of the vials, snapping them and pulling the 10ml oil-based med into a syringe with a needle, wiping the injection site with antiseptic wipe, injecting me and slapping a plaster over the pin hole.

The first few times were ok with a pain level of 4 on an ascending scale of 1 to 10. The injection being done on alternate butt cheeks. But since each jab leaves some residual medication at the injection site, it was pretty soon when the areas hardened with the congestion, and along with that - pain.

The pain got worst and worst and hitting level 8s and 9s, and the kids watch in morbid fascination (it's scary how it is even possible with kids these young...) as I grimace through every injection.

I decided to make it a life lesson with them by telling them about the pain, and how I am enduring it without crying, throwing tantrums or not doing it, because it is necessary, blah blah blah.

Kiddie E came back, "Yes, Mummy is not crying. Mummy only say oh-oh-ouch-ouch."

Hospitalised again.

yup, i was hospitalised again

Ok, it wasn't related to the first incident, and you might even say that i was expected it sooner or later with plan #3... (albeit with much dread and fingers crossing that it wouldn't happen but it did)

Anyways, thank goodness it was 有惊无险, with 2 nights stay, daily injection and lots of medication.

Gonna be out of action for awhile which is a boon for all the books and DVDs that i have piled up at home that I've yet to read and watch, but a bane for work should I be out for too long. It really is such inconvenient time... sigh.

More next time.
