Bravest Girl In The Whole Wide World

The award for “Toughest and Bravest Girl” has to go to Cass!

All my worries about how Cass will cope with the pain and fear has been unfounded. My baby girl was as brave as ever yesterday during the Urodynamics Test, without shedding a tear when the nurse prodded the two catheters into her urethra and rectum. I was holding her hands and comforting her. She did say that it was painful and ticklish but was very cooperative throughout the procedure which lasted for about 40 minutes.

As usual, I had to don on the ‘heavy armor’ coat as X-ray was involved.   Photography is not allowed in the Urodynamics Suite but I managed to convince the staff to let me take just 2 pictures…

Right after the procedure, she was her usual naughty self again, prancing and hopping around the hospital floors.

And she certainly deserved a good meal after the procedure…

She chomped down almost the entire bowl of Soba noodles at Kirishima Japanese restaurant after the test before we returned to the hospital for another half a day of waiting just to get another appointment but alas, I was told to go home as the doctors needed to discuss and review her case first. Abuden, this was what I had expected from a Government-run hospital.

And the good thing about Government-run hospitals is that we don’t have to pay a single sen if you are a citizen of Malaysia.  The procedure yesterday would have cost me over a thousand Ringgit if done in a private hospital. Having said this, my hubs and I plan to make a trip to GMC Penang to consult Cass’ surgeon as there are certain procedures recommended by HKL which we are just not comfortable with.
