Everything Goes Well…

Thanks GOD! everything goes well with Jeremiah’s operation… we really appreciate all the prayers from our family members and friends...

Jeremiah’s operation history…

On 28th September 2008, Sunday, JBoy was admitted at Likas Hospital. He supposed to be there by 10am as advised by Doctor but we purposely came an hour late. Upon arrival the Nurse told us that they thought that we won’t be coming and almost canceled JBoy’s admission, hhmmm…how nice if it’s cancel again, at least we won’t worry that much anymore… but still need to do operation anytime anyway… Well, we feel sorry for our lateness. Oh boy! JBoy look excited for the admission though… Hubby and I, just smile with thousands of worries inside us.

Soon after we ‘checked-in’, JBoy was called for blood test as well as to put the jab on, standby for drip on at midnight when he starts fasting. Guess what? when the Nurse started to take his blood and said, “Jangan takut ah boy, tidak sakit ni, macam kena gigit semut saja” and JBoy answered “ok bah boss” Oh my! I never expect he answered such a way. JBoy really took away my worry though… Alyssa was there too and said to her brother “bah-bah JBoy, sakit tu, nah kau tengok banyak darah kau kena ambil sudah” but well, Jboy just relax and never shows his fears at all…

Only four of them in the room (warded at 6th Floor, Melur 3, Room 7), 3 boys and 1 girl, aged between 3 – 10 and JBoy is the youngest among them. Well, as advised JBoy need to fast from 2.00am until his turn for the operation the next morning starting from 8.00am onwards. However, Jboy last meal taken was at 9.00pm and hoping that he is the first one to go for the operation as he is the youngest and doesn’t have to fast longer time. Oh mann… I just cannot sleep the whole night worrying about the first thing in the morning when JBoy’s woke up of course he will ask for ‘nenen’ (milk) and more foods as knowing him who can eat big quantity of breakfast, ohhh… pity him.

On 29th September 2008, Monday. Ohhh… there you go, JBoy woke up around 8.00am and said “Mummy mau nenen” I told him that he cannot consume anything yet until the operation done, he cried and cried for “nenen”, but soon after that the Nurse came in to put the drip on, luckily, he was fine with that and stop crying. The Nurse advised JBoy saying “Boy jangan minum dan makan dulu ya, tunggu habis operation baru boleh makan apa saja ok” JBoy answered “Ok Nurse”. After awhile with the drip on, JBoy seems uncomfortable with it and asked to take it off. This time Daddy’s turn to comfort JBoy, saying anything that make him forget about foods and drinks, but still he wants to take off the drip. So, I get advised from the Nurse, the Nurse said “ok lah buka dulu nanti pasang balik kalau dia nampak lemah”. After took off the drip, JBoy starts running here and there, on and off asked for water to drink, again, Daddy tried so many things to avoid all that. Phew! what a long wait, the clock shows 12.00 noon but JBoy wasn’t call yet, two of his room mate was back from operation and still asleep. I just cannot stand to wait any longer it almost 15 hours JBoy’s fasting, Hubby and I pity him so much, his lips look so dry and we knew he really need some water… I then asked the Nurse when is JBoy’s turn otherwise he might cannot stand with his hunger. Guess what! The Nurse told us, JBoy is the last one to go, due to the Doctor need to do an emergency operation to someone… oh no!!! I almost cry looking at JBoy situation… really pity him. Fortunately, JBoy has fallen asleep awhile and around 1.30pm only his turn… So, get him changed with the white cloth, then, push him on the stretcher down to 3rd Floor, operation theatre. And either Hubby or I could follow him to the operation theatre. So, JBoy wants Mummy to follow, Ohhh man… I’m so nervous though. Then, on the way to operation room I never had a chance to talk with JBoy course one of the Doctor very child friendly and JBoy was very comfortable with that and answers the Doctor to any questions asked, the Doctor jokes to him as well and JBoy still can laugh. In the operation theatre, my hearts goes even nervous, I’m so weak, my knee shaking and oh… only GOD knows. The Doctors and Nurse talking among themselves while injected the anesthesia jab to JBoy and a few second after that I was asked to go out to the waiting room, the Nurse told me that JBoy already sleep… and I said what! so soon! I don’t even say a word to JBoy. Without realizing it, my tears drop leaving the operation theatre and I heard somebody (Nurse) saying “mama jangan susah hati, pembedahan anak mama akan berjalan lancar, bertenang ya mama. Mama duduk di sini tunggu”. It’s really my first experience seen JBoy got anesthesia jab and fallen asleep immediately… oh no! I just cannot take it…

The operation took 1 hour and 45 minutes. I heard the Nurses saying “Jeremiah, bangun Jeremiah, Jeremiah bangun…” When I heard them waking up JBoy, I straight away go nearer to the operation theatre door but I was stopped by the Nurses and I saw Dr Loriot Kenson came out and said “siapa nama anak mama tu? Jeremiah kan? Don’t worry mama, operation dia ok, sekarang Nurse tengah kasih bangun dia, kalau dia sudah sedar baru boleh bawa dia balik wad” and I said “thank you Doctor” (with a big smile at least my long wait has finally good ending… thanks GOD!). Soon after that, I was called by the Nurse “mama kau kasi bangun si Jeremiah dulu, baru kita bawa dia balik pergi wad”. So, I talk to JBoy “JBoy bangun, kita mau balik sudah, bangun JBoy” JBoy responded “Mummy sejuk... he is shivering. I told the Nurse that JBoy feels cold, then, they put on the warmer machine. After JBoy’s pulse and heart reading done, then we get back to the ward. I could see Hubby had lots of questions in him and had waited patiently outside the operation room. Before he questions me, I told him everything goes well… he smiles and I can see he thanking GOD for everything...

On the way back to the ward, JBoy still weak and asleep, the Doctor advised just let him continue sleeping until he wake up by himself, once he woke up not to give him too much water and foods straights, give him little by little water first and wait for a few minutes then continue, otherwise he will vomit. I just cannot stand sees JBoy in his deep sleep without anything taken since last night. After about 4 hours in his sleep, I woke him up and gave him some water, he drank about 125ml and waited for 10 minutes, he didn’t vomit at all... well, good sign for the next food eh. And ohh… within 4 hours JBoy never stop eating and drinking, it’s pay back time I guess, hehe…

On 30th September 2008, Tuesday. An early Doctor’s round the ward, they mentioned JBoy can be discharged today. I mentioned to JBoy that we can go back home today if he shows that he can sit and walk by himself and wow! he straight away sit by himself and walk around the corridor where Nurses can see him… it’s funny though looking to his action but yes, that’s JBoy, hehe... While waiting to be discharged, JBoy was happy and energetic playing with his car and robot toys given by his Aunty Carolyn.

Alright, it’s time to go JBoy… JBoy said “yeh! yeh! boleh pulang… bye Nurse saya mau pulang sudah” JBoy made the Nurses laugh…

That’s about it… and here's some pictures which can tell the story more...
