I did it...

Today would be my 3rd effort minding my own wound. Went to see the doc last Saturday and by the look on his face, there's something not quite right. 'Something' refused to detach itself from the wound so he had to 'korek' the thing a bit. My bloodless face tells it all .. yes.. I was scared! YaAllah...

The doc gave me a jab alright then he korek the thing .. ouch!!! (eh..mana ada sakit? kan dah kena injek kan??). What was it that he korek? It was just dead tissue .. not much but a bit.. Phewh, I took a deep breadth... alhamdulillah, though at a glance I could see blood on the gauze he just used. My next appointment would be tomorrow at 11am. Aww..not again.

More often than not, Allah somewhat answers my doa "permudahkan usaha". As it was Saturday, there would always be a long Q at the pharmacy, and so the nurses collaborated with me .. They suggested that I buy the prescribed 'things' elsewhere, not from the hospital's pharmacy as that would cut the queuing-up time. How considerate of them.

But when I was about to pay the bill, the cashier said "you have to line up at the pharmacy". Oh? but why? The nurses up there told me there's nothing to take from there. Could you please check it for me? What seems to be the problem? - ohh, just internal problem - the cashier didn't get the fax sent by the nurses up there (whatever that means). I remain cool with my kesian face (sambil berdoa) .. Alhamdulillah, the cashier made it easy for me. There goes my RM160!


Looking at the pic .. That 'raw wild' is actually honey. Next to it with 2 red caps are Albotyl (poison) and Hibiscus soap (these I got free from the nurses..shhh). The procedures: 1-2 drops of Albotyl to the wound (wait for 5 mts), apply the soap generously on the same spot, wash and dry thoroughly then apply 1-2 drops of honey (as it has a wonderful healing power). The rest of the things was bought at the pharmacy nearby, hassle free.

Result: Albotyl=pedih, soap=ok, honey=pedih. How do I feel looking at my own wound and do the dressing myself? Nervous with a dash of semangat waja .. haha... I can do it! Alhamdulillah.

Whoever introduced the valet parking should be given a pat on his/her shoulder. Why?

Miss Muffin (lapaq pulak aih..),

I am never a nurse to myself or others..semalam, I saw an accident by the roadside, blood oozing from the nose of the injured, i dah panic...but heran, time berana boleh pulak. Perhaps the labour pain overshadowed the fear..

U get well soon, kalau my grandma dia kata if ada luka jgn makan kicap, nanti parut jadik hitam..betul ke? hahah
