This came a little late, I know… I am just swamped and lazy. With time spare, I rather sleep or rest my mind and body. So what have I accomplished in 2014…not much actually, I just had a baby. Oh well, having a baby is also considered a huge accomplishment!
2014 have not been a good year for me. I realised its the same case for many people, not sure why. Well, there were many news of aircraft missing, shot and gone, ship sank and lives lost.. oh so many sad news.. May all these be gone.
Well, I am waiting for the Chinese New Year, because that is when the year of 2014 be finally over. Talking about bad things. Just last Wednesday, I fell ill and I called my mum to come over to help me with baby as I didnt want to pass my germs to him, and also I had to see the doctor who always had very long queue. Left the house at 11.30am and was waiting for my turn till around 12 plus. Bought lunch back and when I stepped into my house, my mum immediately told me baby is running high fever, 38.5. Okay, this is my first time having to experience baby fever, and because I have yet to have lunch, I was also sick and groggy. My first instinct was to bring him to A&E. Thank goodness my mum was there to keep checking his temperature as before I left, I told her I felt something not right.
Reached A&E, his temperature reached to 39.5. I was super worried. We were asked to go straight to see the doctor, and had to feed him medicine. We pasted the Kool Fever for baby before we left the house, but didnt seem to work. As baby is fussy about medicine, he totally vomitted the medicine and the milk that he down before. No choice had to get it through from the butt. Baby was really cute, as the Indian doctor with heavy Indian accent spoke, he laughed so heartily. I had never seen him laugh so happily before! Whenever he tried to tell us something, baby would be laughing so loudly that the people around was wondering what happen. The doctor was so serious with a straight face and trying to tell us what we need to do, but baby was laughing. Thinking back I can’t help smiling too.
Finally the medicince was kicking in, his temperature went down to 36.7. But sadly, at this point I found out my Iphone 5 was lost. I was feeling weak with lunch and sick with flu and cough, and running mild fever as well. Was just using my last strength to make sure baby is okay. As they say, a mum will never go done before her child with whatever strength she has.
After he drank his milk and was finally looking better. We headed home together with mil, who drove us and stayed with us. I stayed behind to wait for the security who helped me checked the cctv, unfortunately, they were not able to discover anything and told me to make a police report. I had to go the the police and make my statement which took an hour!!!! I was so sick and tired and feeling faint, but the policeman was really taking his time. I was so weak that I had to sit my head on the table to rest while making statement, yet the policeman could be heard on the phone laughing and making joke with his colleague talking about my case. *rolling eyes* Finally, finished, I fainted at police station as my legs gave way. I was up since 6.30 am sick with flu and cough, went from places to places, exhausted without lunch.
Glad the day ended with baby feeling better. I was really upset about my phone as it has all baby’s first 5 mths pictures. And of course the fact that I had buy a new phone, as I was trying hard not to spend money since I am a SAHM now. I kept crying each time I thought about the photos.
Hubby knew I was upset and got me a new Iphone 6 plus and also helped me to restore back from icloud. Thank goodness he backed up for me some months back, so not all are lost. Love hubby!!!
Now, of course, I am taking every opportunity to take pictures of Baby!! And yes, to back up my pictures!
2015 is gonna be a good year!!! I need to proclaim it!!
