Maternity Leave- 3 Bulan- Dah Tamat

Sepatutnye hari ini saya start berkerja. After lebih 3 bulan bersuka-ria di rumah and free from traffic jam. Tapi harini saya amik annual leave 1 hari je, sebab nak bawa aijaz for monthly check-up kat KK Batu Pahat. Esok pagi baru gerak balik johor (masuk syif petang) dan tinggal lah aijaz dengan grandpaents dia. Sedih... tapi control macho. huwaaa
Adakah saya akan demam rindu kat aijaz?? Adakah saya akan demam sbb engorgement? Only time will tell... ok lah nak siap pegi klinik.

My 2-month-3-weeks-&-4-days old's development


I just have to blog about this. My aijaz managed to roll from his back to his tummy this afternoon. 
As my usual routine of lazing around while aijaz is with his grandparents, i heard  my parents cheering from their room. So i rushed in and saw aijaz trying very hard to roll his body. We’d sit by his side cheering words of encouragement for him (mcm lah jaz bleh paham) . He looked so determined to roll over.  After sometimes, he finally did it!! - and he looked cute doing it.

Another trip to A&E

Last night aijaz temp spike to 39.9. he was wimpering (from what i've been told by cah-coz i was deeply asleep at that time). then around 1am, aijaz cried and that really woke me up. tried to calm him down by giving him BF. but aijaz refused. while he layed in my arms, i could feel the heat from his body is way too hot than normal. 
I'm not panic yet, got up and thinking bout giving him a tepid sponging. But mak reacted strongly against my idea. "dah tgh malam, sejuk-sejuk tak elok mandikan baby, bagi ubat jelah" and that made me panic and mad at mak. I know aijaz need to be strip and sponge bath his body to cool down his temp. since mak already 'dokong' aijaz, i felt obliged to follow her advice.
After giving Aijaz 2ml of syrup and put wet towel on forehead, i continued to dab his body with a different wet towel. Mak wanted to take aijaz to the hospital. Im so relieved to hear that coz i knew, there aijaz will surely be treated in a proper manner.
Ayah drove us straight to the Emergency dept around 2am. Had aijaz registered, checked for temp at the secondary (by this time its down to 38.2) and later MA asked me to bring aijaz for tepid sponging in OR.
Lay aijaz on one of the empty bed there, strip him naked... aijaz is cooing, a good sign of him. A nurse brought a bowl of tap water. Using my bare hand, i gave aijaz first on his face the taste of  cold water followed by his head and the rest of the body. Aijaz's screaming woke up the other patients. Nurse help me too. She checked temp. Wow 36.9 this tepid sponging can really work wonders.
Aijaz stop crying when i put on his nappy.. Nurse advice me not to towel dry aijaz's hair. OK. Dress him with the 'aircond shirt' and off to the waiting area. Mak and Ayah is waiting for us there. I explained to mak the importance of tepid sponging.. but she kept saying 'tak sampai hati dgr aijaz nangis' Aiyo!! Jadi mummy mmg kene keras hati.
A few minute of waiting, doctor called our number. Cakap itu-ini, yadda yadda yaddA, dengue fever symptoms and signs, blah blah blah, importance of breastfeeding and finally FBC. Since aijaz shown no DF symptoms just on-off fever and sometimes dry cough, doctor (HO) want to take FBC.
At first i was allowed to accompany aijaz. That HO try to search for Aijaz's vein. She prick the right hand first, but no blood. so she try the left hand, same thing happend. She called her friend for help, another HO came. This HO asked me to wait outside. I dont mind waiting outside, thinking that HO must be nervous, and i dont want to put more pressure on them. So i left aijaz screaming.
Outside, my parents are anxious to know what happend. I told them bout 'amik darah'. Hearing aijaz screaming, ayah ordered me to go inside and see what are the HO doing. At first i was reluctant, but i cant bear to hear aijaz. so i went and surprised to see 3 doc attend aijaz. "dah dpt darah?" i asked them. Not only aijaz were pricked on both of his hand, but also his feet. Still no blood. Their excuse is aijaz  too chubby so very hard to find the vein. So aijaz  were send home with a new bottle of fever syrup. Cian.. Aijaz.

Check-up 0 years & 2 months old!

Mendokong aijaz bagaikan meletak sekampit beras 5kg di bahu. Lenguh beb..
Especially  lepas menyusu terasa sgt beratnye. Oops!! x boleh CAKAP berat,  kene gantikan dengan perkataan SEMANGAT. itulah yang ditegur mak mentua saya. 
So harini aijaz disuntik, tok mak temankan kat dlm bilik suntikan itu (tolong pegangkan beg). Tok Ayah pi tunggu giliran amik ubat kat farmasi. Setelah duduk dikerusi sambil memangku/menyusu badan aijaz, saya mula membuka butang bodysuit aijaz. Hanya dibahagian kaki sahaja, kerna nurse akan inject kat peha aijaz.  sambil saya susukan aijaz, pegang peha dia, nurse memulakan kerja menginject, once the jarum are inside peha, aijaz mula menjerit and muka kemerahan. Huhu mmg kesian tp utk kesihatan... biarkan je lah.
Selesai... sambil tekan swab kat bekas injection tu. sy tetap menyuakan susu ke mulut aijaz. sambil nyusu, aijaz merengek bagaikan ingin mengatakan sesuatu kat kami. Comel lah plak kelihatan nyer. Nurse ckp maybe dia nak ngadu kat ibu dia... alahai cian nye aijaz. nurse bg jugak penerangan pasal kemungkinan demam after injection 2 month ni. Tp dia ckp kalau fully breastfeed xde masalah demam sbb antibodi kuat. Mayb nurse tgk sy BF aijaz so dia assume sy exclusively BF. terpaksalah berterus terang yg sy ni dah campur formula bg kat aijaz. So nurse nasihatkan supaya harini keep BF him utk elak demam. and if temp naik above 37 bleh lah bg syrup tu kat aijaz. Dlm otak, saya dah terfikir utk up kan doses Vit-C sy. So aijaz can have the benefit from my BF. Selepas say thanks to the nurse kami pergi ke farmasi utk tunggu tok ayah. Dah dpt ubat, pergi isi perut kat kafe. Aijaz tertido dalam dakapan tok ayah. 
Kami makan dulu. Dah siap makan, turn saya pulak dukung aijaz yg dah tido itu. Mak pergi tapau lauk, sbb harini malas masak. Ayah n saya berbual dgn jiran yg kebetulan datang utk check-up. Segan nyer saya nak berbual dgn auntie tu sbb english saya dah se 'fluent'  dulu. hehehe
