Of my 3 kids, I think I have a softer spot for Baby, though I love all 3 very much. That’s because I have been through so much hardship and roller coaster rides with Baby and have seen how much my little trooper have suffered for the first 14 months of her life. Each time I dress Baby up, every part of her reminds me of something and makes me appreciates her more.
Her eyes – it reminds me that she had undergone a Chalazion eye surgery in March this year and I’m thankful to God that she still has her beautiful eyes.
Her chest – the little hole on the right of her chest reminds me that the surgeon had inserted a feeding tube through her chest to give her nutrients drips during her 3-week stay in the hospital in May last year.
Her abdomen – not a single day goes by without me looking at the 2 cuts on her belly. I thank God that Baby wasn’t taken away from me in May last year.
Her down under – it reminds me that she had to have catheter inserted into her down under almost every other month when she was a baby, for the nephrologist to collect her urine and for MCUG scans to be carried out.
Her chubby hands and feet – they remind me that her limbs were poked every month on end with jabs and catheters whenever she had UTI attacks for the first 14 months of her life.
Her nose – reminds me that an NT tube was painfully inserted through her nostrils, direct into her stomach during her stay in the hospital last May.
I am thankful that she can walk and talk. I remember our doctors telling us that some of the antibiotics may leave adverse reactions like hindering her bones growth and I was so worried that all the medication would also impair her speech development. God has answered my prayers. Baby is one healthy girl now, THANK YOU LORD!
