Adam's first hospital stay - Part 2

Hubby settled things with Admission ( oh God I’m so thankful that we’re staff of P*tronas! Alhamdulillah…dah beranak ni baru sedar the importance of medical coverage..Tq P*tronas for covering our medical bills!!) and we were brought to the Pediatric Wards. Get this, the ward is AWESOME! That’s my first thought as the lift opens on the sixth floor. The whole floor has a sea creature theme. The walls are nice shades of blue with murals of fish and sea horses. The nurses station is decorated with hanging (swimming?) fishes. Oh no we forgot to take photos! The nurse took us to Adam’s room and walla! Again we were very impressed! The room is huge, so much bigger than my ward room after labour..hehe..the decoration is colourful with sea creatures everywhere, from the curtains to the toilet roll (seriously, ade corak starfish kat toilet roll dia ok). Adam has his own cot and there’s a bed for Mommy. In fact food is ordered for me!

Alamak sooooo completely different from KPJ Kajang where – Adam tak dpt his own room, Mommy and Daddy kene halau from the nursery, Mommy kene lecture dgn nurse cos tanak kasi formula, Adam was given formula despite constant reminding that he’s fully breastfed. Ok this one is another story lak ye.hehe.

Ok back to Ampang Puteri. Lps admitted that night the nurses masukkan jarum line (?) kat tgn Adam untuk insert antibiotics. My God siannye anak Mommy..menangis2 cos sakit tau kene cucuk..dahla tu first time cucuk nurse tak jumpa vein. Later that night cucuk lagi the other hand pulak. I think Adam inherit my problem with veinsla…susah sgt nak derma darah ke, amik blood sample ke…mesti 2-3 kali cos tak jumpa vein..I don’t think it’s the nurses’ fault..kesian Adam..the nurses were kind and pandai main2 dgn Adam..

Adam dgn jarum kat tgn..still smiley..

The next day Adam buat X-ray. Doc nak tgk if the infection has come to his lungs (Pneumonia) or if it’s still at his throat area only (Bronchitis).

Every 6 hours Adam kene pakai nebulizer. I was nervous at first because I heard so many horror stories bila budak2 kene pakai nebulizer..mesti diorg menangis..I pun beria la menyanyi2 pujuk2 tell him he’s brave…tapi alhamdulillah..Adam relek je…I don’t know where he gets his strength, mesti from Daddy ni..kalau Mommy mesti takdenye…hehe…I held him close everytime nurse dtg kasi nebulizer so I smelt the gas also..bau dia mmg tak berape comfortable la..Even ade times yg the nurse kasi dia pakai nebulizer sambil dia tgh tido…relek je dia sambung je tido cam biasa..Adam mkn ubat pun sempoi je..tak nangis…I’m so proud of you Adam..

Unfortunately ada seorg nurse yg agak incompetent. First I don’t know what she did when inserting antibiotics sampai lari pulak jarumnye lebam tgn..before that nurse lain insert antibiotics selambe je takde problem pun..dah terpaksa cucuk tempat lain pulak kat kaki pulak…pun tak jumpa vein…finally doctor ckp cucuk antibiotic mcm jab je kat kaki Adam..And then the same nurse amik blood test Adam sampai tumpah2 darah melambak pastu tak tutup blood sample even though I ckp kat dia tutupler…turned out blood sample tu rosak sbb darah beku..mana tak beku, awak tak tutup bekasnye..ceh..nasib baik then they sent another guy to do blood test senang je mamat tu amik darah..skejap jer…

After 3 days in the hospital..doktor ckp Adam can be discharged…

Alhamdulillah..syukur sgt Adam dah baik..

Tq so much to all the kind nurses and to Dr Kumari…We love you!

Adam, tq for getting better =) Mommy loves you so much….

gosh apehal KPJ kajang tu..

i osso give 5* to APSH. even if small2 case like hafiy last time dia check everythng to ensure the baby was OK. xde assume2 'ok je ni' even the doctor ckp "very good u excl bf, cpt sembuh ni" :)

we dont care about the bill, bkn psl comp bayarkan je, but the hospitality itself, mmg memuaskan hati. xkisahlah bayar berapa janji puas hati.

[i baru je upkan bayaran to hafiy's babysitter sbb puas hati sgt dgn dia, even dia xmintak pon]

along said...

hafiy last time on nebulizer tu melalak2!

fizah said...

laa...adam kene athma ek? alamak i know how it feel, so tak selesa sbb sesak nafas...apetah lagi baby..ko cube elakkan die makan bende2 yg sejuk dalam ni ie: buah tembikai, pulut, ice definitely no..mgkin bole bagi die honey.aku x sure if there's a side effect of honey for babies but its good utk bagi panas dada/paru2..

MommyAdam said...
