On 12 April, while I was about to eat my dinner, XJ requested to poo. I helped her to sit on the potty and thought I could quickly take my dinner after that. But she yelled for me. I went to see what was wrong and she seems to have some difficulties to do her business. I sat beside her telling her to take her time while I can see her trying her best. Nothing came out. After about 10 minutes, XJ started to cry and mumbling "pain".
I quickly carried her to the toilet and asked her to squat instead (hoping by squatting will help her to release) but still nothing. She was scared and wanted to give up. MIL then suggested to buy medication from the Chinese Medical Hall. Quickly, she and hubby went and bought back the medication. A 5 minutes wait was like 5 hours to me that day. XJ was sitting on the potty waiting and dare not poo. She was still crying and mumbling "pain".
When MIL and hubby were back, we quickly insert the medication into her anus and hoping for some good news. Still nothing. We inserted the 2nd tube and still nothing. Maybe we do not have the skill / done the wrong way ? This had frighten XJ even more. I got panicked too and don't know what to do.
I even pour some olive oil (for hair) on my palm and rub her anus hoping to make it lubricated and try to help XJ to 'dig' out her stool. Oh my! her 'gold' was really HARD like a stone and there are just no way it is coming out. XJ was too tired and she nearly FELL ASLEEP on her potty !!!
No choice, we brought XJ to the hospital. The doctor used the same method (pump in the medication into her anus) and advised me to bring her to the toilet immediately. XJ was afraid and refused to enter the toilet at first, but maybe she have got the urged (the medication was working) and allowed me to bring her in. Soon, her 'gold' fell like atom bomb and we were both relieved !
XJ still cried pain but was fine after a short rest in the hospital compound. Looking at her earlier, really scared me and felt so pity for her. Not going to let this happen again.
I took my dinner at 10pm that day. Ya...I still have the appetite and was damn hungry!
