Baby C’s Happy Again!

For 3 weeks since 5 May 09 (her first surgery), I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for my sweetie-pie to give me a smile…. and she finally gave me her sweet, angelic smile 2 days ago. Since yesterday, there has been more smiles and antics from my sweetie-pie.

My doctor gave me the green light to start nursing Baby C yesterday. Her first feed after 10 days on strict NIL BY MOUTH was at 4pm yesterday. As I nursed her, my heartbeat paced really fast as I was really worried that she will just spew the milk out like a volcano, like what was happening before her 2nd surgery. After the first breastfeed, my sweetie-pie wanted more and more. She was latched on to my boops almost the whole night…. and really sucked me dry!   It was more of a comfort sucking for baby and I think she was scared that I would deprieve her of her mek mek again, like what had happened twice over the past 3 weeks. The whole of last night, baby did not sleep well, kept waking up and kept saying “um mai” (no in Cantonese). She must have had a nightmare or felt hot being under my armpit the whole night! At one point, she sat up and kept pointing to the basket of fruits on the table. I know she’s been yearning to eat the oranges and dragon fruits for a long time. Our doctor gave us the nod to feed her diluted freshly squeezed orange juice today and I gave her some this morning… very, very little. I have now developed a phobia of feeding my baby and I will be really cautious this time not to overfeed her.

This morning, I also went to the Acconts Department and met up with the Accounts Officer, an elderly man who is really nice, warm and fatherly. I wanted to seek clarification on my exorbitant bill  and asked for a discount.  Good thing I checked the detailed billing, item by item as there was overcharging on a few items.   The bill as of yesterday was RM24k++.   This RM24k++ is exclusive of our first bill, also RM24k+. By the time we are discharged (hopefully by tomorrow), I am pretty sure the bill will hit RM50k. I am now praying hard that we will be granted a very good discount.

Baby C is indeed a fighter. What she has been through in the first year of her life is definitely way more than what a normal adult normally has to go through in his/her lifetime. That’s really a lot for her (and for me too) to endure but with God’s grace, she managed to sail through.  I hope and pray that this will be the end of our long nightmare.

    i hope they will give good discount and u will have a windfall somehow…. just to lessen the financial burden…

    u take care and keep your fighting spirit up! She WILL survive through all this nightmare!

  10. Is it too early to say congratulation? 🙂 Nice to see baby C without all the tubes….

    Hospital bills does have a lot of add ons that one will not be able to fully understand. I think you might waste a lot of time going through the overcharges… sometimes they also miss out something.. at the end.. it’s hard to argue. don’t let baby C wait too long to get home….

    Can request for an installment or not? because you only prepared Rm10K and not the final RM50K.. which is 5X more. just tell them you really having hard time getting those big sum at such a short time.

    When my mil had a sudden heart attack while we were in Sydney and had to undergo 2 times of angioplasty.. We asked for financial help and they let us pay in monthly installments over one year.. we didn’t buy travel insurance.
