No….. He wasn’t referring to his own discomfort from severe coughing. Nor was he complaining of the iv drip in his hands. He ain’t complaining about his breathless & acute bronchitis either….
After 1 week stay in the hospital, Xi en wasn’t overly concerned about his own ailments… Instead, this evening when he saw my BCG mark on my arm, he pressed on it & said “mummy, pain pain here”.
Xi en thought that mummy has a painfully wound.
Immediately, he fumbled off his oxygen mask; made difficult by the iv drip on his right hand; propped himself towards me & blew gently at my “wound”.
“Mummy pain pain here” (blow blow)
“Mummy, ask teacher (I don’t know why not “nurse”) paste plaster.” (blow blow)
He asked for a tissue… I gave him one. He said: “Mummy don’t cry.. Not painful.. Don’t cry.. ask teacher (again not nurse?) paste plaster.”
I wasn’t crying..but about to. Wahhh…..children are God’s purest form of creation. I just so love my boy & his tender heart.
Latest updates – Xi en is getting much better after dosage of antibiotics. He’s starting to eat & scream for attention too.
Thank you to all friends & relatives for visiting, praying, buying gifts, love gifts and touching our lives. Sincerely appreciate your acts of love & concern.
Praying now that Xi En will be discharged real soon.
That’s him doing silly things like stuffing tissue into the mask ‘cos he hated wearing it.
