Honestly.. I never want to be too protective mother.. but..
We just came back from BJU Hospital.. brought lil Hariz for check up.. I called my husband's boss' wife asking for her opinion.. told Clara about Hariz's condition.. She used to be a nurse.. and of course she told me to bring Hariz to hospital.. and since I only slept for about 4 hrs (the most) last night.. (2hrs for 10pm to 12.30am, and then 5am till 6++ am), we decided we should just check.. just in case.. hope for nothing serious.. Dr checked everythings fine.. thanks you Allah.. its just normal discharge.. said the doctor.. some how got stuck.. maybe sebab dry air around.. then she just gave 'sucker' to suck any discharge liquid or dirt in Hariz's nose as well as saline water..
as its about time for Hariz next immunization.. second dose for Hepatitis B.. so we just do the vaccination.. and.. the nurse that came to give the vaccination (here the nurse will do the vaccination not doctor like in Malaysia..) is the same one that gave to Farizah & Farzana last time.. (2 girls had vaccination on the same day, for different immunization of course) I honestly.. dont like that nurse.. I was so stupid to be quiet last time as she gave the vaccination last time like stabbing.. pressing using her thumb.. about 90 degree and hold the injection needle using all the other fingers.. can u imagine? cam stab tuh? at that time (during Farizah's & Farzana's time) me and my husband couldnt believe our eyes, yet we said nothing.. so today.. as the same nurse came.. I asked Abg should we change the nurse as he also nodded she's the same nurse.. Abg said cam jangan buat hal la.. but I couldnt let that incident happened again.. I asked her how she's going to insert the needle.. she said its going to be 90 degree.. I said that's hurt.. can u lower the degree.. she said.. that's the way n some injection need to go to muscle and bla2.. I said.. I have 3 children already.. I've seen them all.. we know when its too painful and when its not, right? so I asked to give lower degree.. unless I'll change nurse.. she said okay.. but then argue that's how it's done.. so I told her.. its okay.. do u mind if other nurse do that? then I go out n observed nurses.. and I asked one nurse whom I believe not rough person to do it.. even Hariz cried.. but I know he just shocked because he was sleeping and it was just for a while.. then he just fall asleep back.. but last time.. Farzana & Farizah cried.. both of them and that rough nurse gave stickers later to Farzana to quiet her.. (and I gave chocolate to Farzana too..) I've been silly once to said nothing.. but not again.. specially Hariz is too little and the way she injected needle like stabbing u know! that rough nurse argued n complaint to other nurse whom later tried to talk to me even brought procedures how injection been done.. I'm not a doctor.. nor learning medicine.. but I'm a mother of 3! I might be naive.. but not stupid.. for once.. I had let my girls been hurt like that.. I felt like I was stabbed.. but I'll make sure it never happen again.. if I can of course.. the nurse who gave vaccination to lil Hariz asked the other nurse to leave.. this hospital is supposed to be a private-foreign hospital.. pricy hospital okay.. not that we want to go to this kind of hospital.. but we dont have much choice.. we need English speaking hosp.. and u know how much we were charged for the visit just now? its 1054 yuan (more than RM500!)
so please understand me if I just have to put my stand.. at times.. a mother got to do what a mother got to do.. what u girls think?
note: Abg showed me this later at night.. he searched in the internet.. luckily Hariz wasn't that cranky.. cuma nangis bangun tido bila tak boleh bernafas.. harap he'll get better soon.. as its already been for about 2 weeks already.. (Hariz's stuffed nose thingy)
Stuffy Nose Makes for a Stressed Baby (and Parent)
When a newborn gets a stuffy nose, it can be particularly irritating for both parent and child. "Babies under three months are what we call obligatory nose breathers, which simply means they won't breathe through their mouths. So when a baby gets a stuffy nose, it's inordinately stressful," says Douglas Holsclaw, M.D., professor of pediatrics and director of the Pediatric Pulmonary and Cystic Fibrosis Center at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia.
"Many parents come rushing into the emergency room or their pediatrician's office because their baby won't eat or sleep and is cranky all the time. It's because the baby's nose is stuffed. A baby cannot suck on a bottle or feed if he can't breathe through his nose."
To relieve an infant's stuffy nose, first use a bulb syringe or nasal aspirator to clear the nose of as much mucus as you can. Then fill a medicine dropper with saline solution. Holding the baby in your arms, positioned so that his head is slightly below the rest of his body, drop the saline into each nostril. You're doing it right if the saline hits the top of the baby's mouth, says Dr. Holsclaw. Immediately after spraying, hold the baby upright. Be sure to give one quick squirt in each nostril--so you don't "flood" the baby's nose with the saline.
By the way, Hariz's 4.68kg and 57cm (or 58cm, nurse memula checked 58cm, bila tengok banyak sgt growth, dia measured balik, which Fatin tak sempat tengok and recorded for 57cm) for his height.. when Hariz was borned, he was 3.5kg (or 3.48kg in doctor's record.. I don't understand why they just didnt put 3.48kg for official weight.. ker memang camnih?) and 50.5cm height rasenyer.. then last 9th of March, he was 3.79kg and 52cm, 12 days after he was borned..) I just put here for my future reference.. but even with stuffy nose n etc.. he's been growing.. that's the most important things.. TQ
