Updates On Baby C (Day 3)

I am back home to bathe and to pack some stuff again.  Finally this morning, the paed managed to find a vein on the back of BB C’s left palm.  As expected, BB C wailed her lungs out when the needle was poked into her hand.  My heart bled too seeing her tiny hand being poked and the dr. had to insert a small pump/valve and squeeze her hand tightly to draw out the blood, drop by drop…. to collect 3 small bottles of blood.  The blood results were just out and the white blood cells are still quite high, thus she is to continue the antibiotics, given via the UV line.

BB C needs the antibiotics for 7 days but the dr. has given me permission to take home leave to go home.  However, I need to bring BB C back to the hospital for the nurses to inject the antibiotics thru the IV line 3 times a day. 

One of my readers told me that I can avoid having BB C go thru the test (where a dye will be injected thru her urether) to rule out Kidney Reflux.  However, there will be tedious procedures where I will need to bring BB C to the hospital very frequently for her urine to be cultured.  I hope I can choose this option instead of having to risk BB C doing the test as she will be sedated.  I never want to see BB C sedated as she is just so small and fragile.  We will also be consulting a pediatric Nephrologist for a second opinion. 

Please continue to pray that BB C does not have Kidney Reflux.  Miracles do happen.  It has happened many times to me in the past.  When Alycia was diagnosed as having Hip Dysplasia when she was just 6 mths old, my world was suddenly crushed too.  After 3 months of non-invasive and non-medical treatment, her hips condition finally resolved by itself.  I am praying hard that another miracle will happen and that BB C does not need surgery / invasive medical treatments to get treated.

Will post my updates tomorrow. Time to return to the hospital now to nurse BB C and hopefully, she has peed into the urine bag.

Announce It With Style

Having a new baby in the family is one of the happiest occasions for most parents. They were the happiest occasions for me when I gave birth to my 3 angels. Announcing the birth of my babies was also one of the proudest occasions for me. The Chinese normally ‘officially’ announce the birth of their child after 30 days from the birth date during which  they will distribute a fullmoon celebration box containing hard boiled eggs dyed in red food coloring, pickled gingers, chicken or roast pork, turmeric rice and cakes.

Some parents would announce the birth of their little precious one through birth announcement cards. Birth announcement cards are one inexpensive and great way to announce the birth of your long awaited baby in style. Not only will your friends and relatives be notified of the birth of your baby, they also get to keep the picture of your baby that is imprinted on the card. Details of your baby like name, date of birth, place of birth, birth weight, etc. can also be printed on the card.
