Z hospitalized

He was down with fever. Started coughing and vomiting. On the fourth day of fever I heard a little wheezing. First time dengar. IY never had wheezing. This was something new to me. Rushed him to the ER. 39.1C (and that’s even after PCM). MO wanted him to be admitted and see the paed. They ran a blood test and gave him nebulizer. Masa amik blood, his blood was so thick, tak mengalir langsung masuk tube. That’s a sign of dehydration. I kinda knew it then sebab dia memang refused to eat. Just water and milk sahaja sejak start demam.

Bermula la episode masuk ward..again! Mommy became a pro dah. Texted Gee and told him to bring stuff. ( I was alone sebab Gee handling IY to school that morning, I brought Z to the hospital at 6am).

The insurance process was a swift. Cepat je dapat bilik. Z slept soundly for a good few hours after the neb. The paed saw him kat ward and saw he had a very bad throat. Red and luka. No wonder la the fever tak kebah2 and he refused food. Sakit tu. Suara pun dah rock.

First few hours warded--baru dapat lena after a very restless night.

They dripped him and gave him antibiotics via the iv line. Monitored his temperature every few hours. I noticed they never gave him the ubat demam syrup tau. Everytime dorang kasi supp ikut bum je. And I remembered I read Dr Halina’s comment in one of her entries, dia pun tak penah kasi Bella ubat demam syrup tu. She said only PCM supp ikut bum je (and that’s only if it’s more than 38.5C). If below that sponging sahaja. I usually give the supp kalau dia tengah tido sebab tak nak kejut makan ubat. Z never liked sponging. Marah betul dia kalau ada kain kat kepala tu. So selalunya I kasi mandi terus. And let the water kering sendiri (tak lap kering sangat). Then biar dia pakai shorts and sleeveless. Kadang tu pampers je.

Sangat sopan ketika neb sessions. Nurse sangat kagum. "Kan best kalau semua patient cam ni?" Bravo adik!

Petang tu Z started restless (well, mommy pun!), dia rimas atas katil je. Rehat jap mintak bukak iv tu and he roamed around the room. Main bola la, main hot wheels la..nampak dia ceria sikit. Esok pagi, Dr Anthony, the paed came and check on him. He was happy to see Z was recovering. No recurring wheezing nor temperature. Memang the throat tu akan amik masa nak sembuh. He let us go home. Yeay! Continue makan antibiotics for another 4 days. He also suggested we give him some honey for the throat.

Dah nak makan dah. Tapi makan sendiri. Suap tak nak. Suka hati la dik, asalkan makan kay?

Alhamdulillah, only 1 night kat hospital. Z’s getting better now. Eating like normal (even more selera actually). Playing (and gaduh) dengan abang IY macam biasa balik. Demam nak pandai apa dik? Pandai cakap eh?

For the record, he’s back to being the petite underweight Z. 8.8kg at 1.9yo. I hetchuuu throat virus!

    respect la mummy is one tough mum. πŸ™‚ and so glad to hear his selera is back. and this self-feeding phase.. tak suka! messy! lol…

    • Kalau ada rezeki InsyaAllah we’ll meet personally ok? Haa gomol puas2..hihi!
      Haa messy yang tak larat tu. Kena vacuum the dining EVERYTIME lepas makan. Gahhh!

  2. Salam puteri. Z’s case sama dgn my daughter. Fever ups n down xkebah2 n xnak makan/minum then br realized throat luka. Being warded for 5days…then about 3weeks after that (that is now), bjangkit sakit mata ler pulak with her mates in nursery. Danggg terpaksa la on leave lagi. Anything for you my dear…nsb la anak br sorang..hehe

  3. Salam Mommy Putri,
    Apa kabar? And how is lil Z today? Kesian si comel ni demam. Kena dripped pulak tu! Hope lil Z dah semakin sihat. Tak lupa juga buat mommy Z…take care!

  4. salam Put3,

    harap Z dah recover sepenuhnya. MMg untuk tekak bagus bagi Honey. kalau dah start nampak macam nak batuk sikit2 pun bg honey pun elok jugak. Ada antiseptic kot dalam honey tu. kalau luka luaran pun boleh sapu honey untuk cepatkan penyembuhan luka. Cuma lately ada concern pasal bahaya honey pada baby. entah lah. terpulang pada individu. sebab dulu pun ada real life case anak dia 3 bulan kena jangkitan paru2, nak masuk antibiotik macam kecik sgt, jadi bagi makan madu kaw kaw, last sihat walafiat je. ada reason kenapa dalam Quran sebut honey tu berhali-kali, kan.

    • Salam Linda,
      Z dah okay alhamdulillah.
      I pun selalu dengar honey is good. For babies less 6months old I akan takut nak kasi coz first 6months should only be breastmilk only. Tapi like u said, kuasa Allah, tak salah mencuba terpulang to the parents. Bila anak sakit, we are willing to do anything for them.

      But since he’s almost 2yo so I mmg akan kasi honey to him. Cuma nak cari the right honey asli not the commercialized ones.

      • Oh.. I ada share pasal mcmana nak kenal honey tulin kat blog i, tajuk Honey. & n jgn beli kat orang asli tu, diorang dah campur gula merah tambah lagi kalau musim hujan, xboleh tuai honey. Lagi la banyak yg tipu. Trust me
