7th September 2010

This date officially marked YX turned 4 years old. And this date was also a day to remember because it was YX's FIRST TIME and the day he got all of us PANIC & WORRIED. Well, by looking at the picture below, you might already know where is that place.

It all started after lunch time. At around 1.15 pm, MIL called me to inform that YX was complaining of stomachache. He was yelling, crying and crouching with both hands holding to his stomach. MIL rushed him to the government clinic while I went over to the clinic from my office. The service was very fast and soon, the doctor examined on him and suspected appendicitis.

YX was directed to be sent to the General Hospital for further check up and might required to be admitted. We quickly rushed him to the emergency department while YX was still yelling and crying in pain.

Once we reached the General Hospital (which was just located opposite of the clinic), we rushed YX into the room and the doctor started to press his stomach again to check exactly where is the pain to determine the caused. Seeing him in pain, the doctor feed him some pain killer but YX suddenly vomited everything out including the rice he ate during lunch time.

After numerous checking, the doctor took his blood and urine but the reading turned out to be fine. Next, YX was sent for an X-ray at the abdomen and it turned out to be fine too ! But my poor Birthday boy was still in great pain. So doctor decided to admit him for a 24 hour of observation.

Soon, the pain killer managed to claim YX down and he fell asleep. While in the wad, YX woke up and was in his normal self again. He even said he was hungry and managed to eat his normal portion of rice with chicken provided by the hospital. He no longer complaint stomachache but doctor does not allowed YX to be discharged as worried the pain might come back again. Doctor suspected bacteria attacking YX's stomach which was very normal for a child at this age.

The next morning, we were so bored in the wad and lucky there was a mini garden in the hospital compound and I brought him for a walk. Looking at his poses, this guaranteed YX was in pink of health !

And a playground for him to play too. He enjoyed the slide.

At around 4.30pm, finally the doctor gave the green light for YX to be discharged. Up till today, he is ok and no more complaint of stomachache. He eats well, shits well and plays well.

Note : 4th - 7th September 2009, YX was also not feeling well. You can read it here.
