SUPERMOM!

I recently did a shirt order for a friend who regularly meets with her kakis (friends) for outings/picnics once in a while.  They are families of children with special needs.

This year they decided to treat themselves to customized tshirts:


They are super moms indeed.  Unlike myself, their children are still young and they have a long way to go.  And yet, through all the struggles, long days, occasionally sick child, etc, they are a happy group of ladies who live life to the fullest with their children.


I'm inspired by their zest for life :)

Keep up the good work ladies!!

SPEICLA CHAIR REPAIRED

The Convaid Rodeo that we received from Make A Wish has been put to good use for 4 years.  Just recently, the crotch strap holder broke and DNR wheels was nice to sew a strong nylon strap across so that I could refit the crotch strap over it.





Sam was nice.  He didn't charge me for this.

Jonathan is growing steadily.  This chair is 14 inches and he's slowly growing out of it.  The seat depth is already too short for his long legs and now his legs are jutting out.  Will have to get him a new chair soon.  Maybe will get a customized one that cost 1/3 of the price of this chair.

If you want to see the whole chair when we first received it, it's HERE.

God bless!

DENTAL PRO CESARE 15 AUGUST 2014

It it takes me two says to recover from Jonathan's dental procedure at Day Surgery,  KK Hospital. What more for Jonathan?

All in all there were four teeth extractions with stitches for quick recovery.  Doctor had to remove 2 permanent baby canine teeth that didn't come out of their own. Because of these 2 teeth, the adult molars were pushed back and were in a clutter of 3 and jutting out. This happened on the left and right side of his jaw. Doctor also advised to remove those 2 molars so that it will not strain the gums there and for easy cleaning.

Till today, Jonathan says the gums are still sore and tells me he needs panadol to ease the pain. And the right nostril is also sore into which they inserted a breathing tube.

Here he was at the recovery just outside the operating theatre:



They placed him face down to allowed the blood or saliva to flow out.  But he was an unhappy patient 5 minutes into being fully wake.  He didn't like that they had tonsuction him to remove the thick bloody secretion that were stuck at his throat.  They refused to allow him to leave unless his throat was clear.

Thankfully after 15 mintues we were moved to the day surgery recovery room to feed him before leaving the hospital.

fasting was from 6am. He went intonthe operatong theatre at 3.40pm. Whole procedure lasted almost an hour. By the time after recovery, we left KK around 7pm.

Thank you Lord Jesus for protectong Jonathan and guiding the doctors and nurses.  He recovered and cleared his phlegm very quickly.

Here's what we were doing while waiting.


He wawanted the tag on his ankle.

DENTAL CLEANING 15 AUGUST 2014

I feel guilty right now.  H keeps assuring me it's for Jonathan's good.

Jonathan is having his teeth cleaned.  A tri-yearly procedure.

He saw me packing his bag last night.  He keep peeking at me when he heard the zipper being pulled.  He knew something was up, and also for the fact that both H and I were sometimes conversing in mandarin.

How to tell him?

Before he went to bed, he was already whining. As much as I do not understand what he was saying, I knew deep down he wanted to know what was going on.  But I couldn't because I know he will surely not go to sleep, no matter how tired he was.

What could we do?

Nothing but pray.

Thankfully he went to sleep rather quickly...also thanks to the cold medication I gave him after his supper.  He had caught a cold on Monday so hopefully later it will be a "go ahead".  Already postponed once and waited for another 3 months.  I don't want to have it postponed again, of which the decision will be made by the anesthetist.

I'm nervous with this type of procedure.  GA.  But I'm also thankful at the same time because he will not feel much tugging and pulling and  hearing all the drlling sound as the gadgets chip the plaque from his teeth.

Thanking the Lord for everything to run smoothly including the dentist and staff who will be attending to him.

I can only do one thing now to feel lest guilty....pray and believe that Jonathan will be willing to go later this afternoon and it will not be difficult to put him on the buggy and that everything will be on time and we don't have to wait too long.

Lord I commit Jonathan unto you.  He is in good hands....Your hands.  Thank you for keeping him full when he has to fast for 6 hours.  Thank you for Your peace is upon him.  And most of all that Jonathan will go in well and discharged and come home well.

We are supposed to be at KK by 12noon. Will update my journal tonight.

God bless!

SOME PHOTOS TO SHARE

Picture (above) was taken on one occasion when he was not well.  He want to sit with me in his bedroom. While he was leaning against my chest, I looked down and saw his beautiful eyes.  Took my mobile phone and snapped this close up.  Love it.  This speaks volumes to me.

And on another happy day, the little prince is happy to be my hat model as you can see in the following pictures:









I ordered these caps for samples and he does look great as he wears them :)  thank you darling for being my handsome model :)

WILL YOU TALK TO ME?

Tonight...as I lay down beside Jonathan watching him go to sleep, one question I asked him as he looked into my eyes:

Will you talk to me?   I need to share my heart with you and know what you are always thinking.

Today my heart was heavy.  Because of a statement I read.  It's funny how this happened.  But it's been brewing for quite sometime already and has been kept in one corner of my heart for a while.  So tonight, when I read that statement, I realised that in this world, besides God who watches and hears us, we, my family, are all alone.

Hard as I would like to admit, there are times when you say something and yet nobody takes the cue.  They are all about themselves and they expect you to do it for them.  I guess, nobody is as sensitive as I am....maybe this is even a selfish thought.

But what can I do?  I can't force others to share the same sentiments as I do.  So I have decided that I shall not bother any more because there are two persons more important in my life that need my attention and they are the ones who will care for me and share my deepest fears and sadness and happiness.

So I will ask Jonathan again.  Will you talk to me?  I want you to share with me your deepest frustrations and happiness because I care.  And I know that when you talk to me, you will love me when I share my deepest sadness and joys with you.....because you care.

God bless all you reads this journal <3 p="">

MOVING OBJECTS

Jonathan is kind of getting better in aiming his hand at an object and transferring it to another spot. But he still can't do with heavier/hard objects.  He knows when I'm recording him so the hesitation LOL. Most of the time he will scoot his body nearer to the item, then grab with his hand. But today he decided to use his leg. An easier way out.

I'm proud of what he can do.

Thanks for visiting. God bless!
