My Heart Shattered Into A Million Pieces…

… yesterday afternoon when I saw Alycia’s badly grazed knee and palm.  The moment Alycia and Sherilyn came back from school, Sherilyn was quick to announce “mummy, che che’s knee has BLOOD!  She fell down!”  I rushed out from the kitchen to inspect Alycia’s knee and when I saw the fresh wound on her knee, my heart shattered… and I had that familiar weak and numb feeling on my down under whenever I see gory stuff!

A heartbreaking sight that mothers dread to see… the deep crimson cut in the middle has flesh exposed too.  She fell hard on the hard tar road. Thank God she did not land on her face, else….

After dressing of the wound last night…

My poor baby’s wound now has yellowish-whitish discharge.  She screamed blue murder when she saw the alcohol swab that I was about to put on her wound to clean it.  So watudo, I put the swab aside and used a cotton dabbed with sea salt water to clean it instead before applying Dettol cream, gauze and surgical tape to bandage the wound up.

No wonder my right eye lid kept twitching for the past 2 days and I sneezed too yesterday morning. I hardly sneeze. I try not to believe in all these old Chinese wives’ tales as regards eye twitching and sneezing out of the blue. But each time my eye lid twitches, someone dear to me would fall sick. 9 out of 10 times!
