4 days ago, Ayden got home from Childcare with a 39.5 fever. Weak and with no appetite after his evening bath, he slumped on the couch. Next minute, he threw up all over it.
And here I go, INDEED. Not long before the childcare virus got on to him. A day later, Hubs got the virus but he was worst off. His body practically shuts down on him, he couldn’t even lift a finger, he was that weak. He was bedridden for a couple of days.
Exhausted is an understatement. Cleaning up after every vomit, every hour, everywhere. Pulled an arm muscle from Ayden’s clinginess and asking to be carried everywhere. Every 15mins, he kept wailing that his stomach is in pain. His poor appetite doesn’t help either.
Here I am trying to coax Ayden back to sleep for the fifteenth time in the last two hours, because his stomach was painful and his coughs were disrupting his sleep. We bought a 100ml Neurofen on Thursday and its 1/4 left now!
Still feeling helpless, like I have got no idea what to do, I’ve been rubbing oil on his tummy, giving him cuddles, hot water bottle, trying all home remedies that Google told me to. His fever has been on and off.
Just too stressful.
We just need to wait for another Doctor’s appointment tomorrow. Because the Husband is still unwell, got to bring Ayden for an early start at work. Payroll day is super busy. Then rush for his doctor appointment then rush home and hoping to cook lunch for both.
Apart from my sorrows, a lil part of me are glad that it happened now rather than on our holidays.
May Allah ease our affairs tomorrow. 3 more days ✈️
I haven’t put my thoughts 💭 onto this platform for awhile; too long for my own liking.
As time passes, i realised i have a dozen of drafts awaits me, mostly thoughts i jot down and left unpursued.
These days my escape from reality is through the few games I have on my phone or just reading Iain’s series of poetry. A Quick escape before Ayden got me on my feet again.
Still struggling trying to find a balance on social platforms but always get distracted either by business ideas or finding a more efficient way to combat the marketing of business.
I need a getaway. Pronto.
Maybe somewhere green, lushes forest or bush. FRESH AIR AND DO NOTHING ALL DAY!
Body needs to reconnect to nature and resync.
Been hustling since we got back, trying to settle into our regular routine. Waiting for pay to come in. (Broke and Monthly salary is just very inconvenient!)
Will be taking Ayden to weekly Zoo trips. Thank God, Melbourne has three Zoos. Trying to make full use of our Zoo membership before it finishes next month.
Australia Open is now on, and the heat is getting worst as well! Each time when the AO is on, our summer weather gets even hotter!
January, you’re such a drag!
i love Allah.
i love my parents. so much.
i love my family.
i love to be home.
i love Ayden.
i love my husband.
Urmmm Not really. Not when he gets on my nerves. Sometimes I’m hard to deal with. I admit to that.
i love when I prostrate, I feel like all these feels just melt to the ground.
2019, what’s in store?
All I want is to get my
anxiety anxiety anxiety out of my system.
PS: Waiting for my flight home, with tears streaming down my face and a heart so heavy, I feel it’s going to drop to the floor.
Munching on cold leftovers from our Burger King Lunch. Taking deep breaths to have the final whiff of the homeland.
Squeezing Ayden’s hand real tight as I led him through the skybridge where our EK404 flight awaits us.
Will I publish this post? Will I not? Maybe.
