Ridhwan has chicken pox!!!

I still don't know where in the world he got it...as he stays at home with me all the time...ever since the chaos of H1N1 , we too have been avoiding shopping complexes and crowded areas...well hubby and I do go out to buy groceries or important things for ridhwan but Ridhwan has always stayed home...except..one sunday afternoon where we went to SACC but that was a very short stop...and then of course we went to Ridhwan's new brain development class in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail...which will be my next posting ya ;) ...so then the question arise, he got it from the kids in the new class maybe? though the other kids were fine...OR did he get it from the new speech therapy at SDMC which didn't touch or interact with him pun and that was like 2 weeks before he got it....hmm..wondering...wondering...

Anyway, wonder all I can...he got it! It freaked me out a bit at first as hubby and I initially thought it was 'bisul' at his thighs but as usual the mother's instinct knows better...I told myself if this was not bisul, it sure looked like chicken pox...but then, he has no fever...and also it was that one little bisul which looked watery on his thigh, so I though, nantilah ask my mom and it was probably just bisul....and so the instinct was right!!..on Tuesday morning, he was covered with spots! Red spots and some watery!! Oh dear, it is chicken pox...but since the spots were so small unlike mine, when I had it at standard 5, loooong time ago...I was thinking, eh tul ke chicken pox nie or is this some other allergy or something...well, me and my mom decided, query all we can to ourselves, the best thing is to bring Ridhwan to his neuro paed in SDMC. And so, on a tuesday afternoon (cause she only has afternoon clinic on tuesdays) we brought Ridhwan to see his neuro paed....Yup, I was right, it was chicken pox! Though the thing was, he already had a vaccine jab in 2006...and somehow he still got it! But since he ajready had a jab, the neuro paed told me that it would probably be mild and from how it looks and spreading, it looks like a mild one and also since he had no fever...well, it is sort of good news as the one thing we would be worried is if he gets fever...and fever scares me cause it means, temp rising and fits....yes...the scarry thing called fits may just re-occur...nauzubillah...so in a way, it was sort of good its a mild one and he got it when he's young and also my dad said this would definitely boost his antibody and his body will be stronger..Insya-Allah...amin...

So, past one week, all I've been doing is putting calamine on all his spots...he was a bit cranky last week but he is such a good boy as he really didn't complain and not much crying you know...I am so proud of you Ridhwan, you are one strong boy and you really didn't cry much but was just cranky once or twice in a week because of feeling itchy..but that's it...otherwise he has been such a patient and calm boy...mama is so proud of you my love!!

Oh and today, he did something so sweet...he crawled to me quickly when he saw me as I just finished cooking his porridge and he tried to climb on me and said "Mother...mother...angkaaat...angkaaat..." ..yes....he sometimes likes to call me mother...hahaha...and then when I did eventually carry him, he hugged me and said "My mother!!".....gosh! I was surprised the fact he knows the word, 'My' and he used it with 'Mother' and to tell I am his mother!! You made my day today Ridhwan...you really did..and my son...your mother loves you so much and prays everyday you'll be a healthy and strong boy always...amin....

P.S Pic of him with calamine is coming soon ya...i get so engrossed in taking care of him sometimes that I even forgot to take pics of him...hehee...
