Unwell Children

New week it is. December, another 27 days to 2013. Had rough time last week. Both my children were unwell. Baby girl had fever after her jab, which I did expected it. However, she also had rashes all over her body. That sure scares me at first. I thought it was a dengue fever, or chicken pox. Turned out it was just rashes. Due to her fever, the rashes came out. I don't even expected that to happened after her jab. She didn't get it for her previous one.

As for kiddo, he complained of headache Friday morning. No fever at that time. He was fine the day before. We brought baby girl to see the doctor on Friday but didn't checked on kiddo as we thought the headache will go away.

On the evening, he vomited. Like a lot! He drank plain water, it came out. He hardly ate. Both of them slept with me that night. So the mommy had to take care their babies while daddy slept in front of the TV. *smile*

And that night he vomited three times. Habis muntah atas comforter, kain pelikat dan tuala. And guess who's going to clean all that?

So the next morning, he vomited again. That's it. To the hospital we go I said. He was sent to the emergency room as the doctor was on the floor due to emergency case. One doctor came and checked on him, he suspected kiddo had migraine. MIGRAINE!! OH MY GOD! How can he get it that young?? They also did a brain CT scan on him. Thank God, everything was a OK in there.

He was admitted waiting for further check up by his usual doctor, Dr. Kishore. They gave him med to ease the pain and fever which made him sleep. He stopped vomiting.

Dr. Kishore came, checked on him, gave med and asked him to rest. He also suspected kiddo had migraine. After he left, kiddo fell asleep and after an hour he woke up crying. He heard the 'beep, beep' sounds and was totally freaked out like he saw a ghost. That was the first time I saw he was so scared. His face turned white! I hugged him, to keep him calm. Tears came down my face. :(

In the evening he was a bit OK and can eat. No vomiting. Only fever and headache. I slept beside him that night.

The next day, doctor came and checked and said if he had do some jumping here and there or he had bumped into something hard. And then he asked if there are iPad, computer games at home. I said yes. AHA, now we know. You have too much of those, Dr. Kishore told kiddo. We laughed.
So, doc asked to wait for one more day to monitor on his progress. He told kiddo no gadgets for one week, only TV. Kiddo nodded.

Well.. well.. Yes, as per google kids do get migraine. Hmm.. I blame myself of not taking care of him, letting him played with it the whole day during this school holidays. Bad mummy.

He was discharged on yesterday after lunch. He looked active like usual. I did a list for him today before I went to work. What he needs to do at what time and I know he will follow it. He is one good boy.

Getting ready to leave the hospital. He's bored and missing his little sister.

P/S: I hope and pray, that will be the last time we overnight in the hospital. It was like 3 days 2 nights of sick holidays.

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
