Fever, Mak and Raya

The nite before we had our Iftar at Joot Mandi with few friends. Actually I have started to feel feverish and didn't feel good. I have tried all the precautions; to drink a lot of plain water, to keep myself indoor so not to exposed to the heat etc etc. Nevertheless nak kena lagi. Maybe makan lahaam banyak sangat kot.Alhamdulillah.

So the following morning mama experienced the wave of chills and exhaustion and started to feel the temperature is rising. I know that this time fever occurs in response to my tonsilitis. Started to

1. feel swelling and pain in the throat
2. inflammation and irritation in the area on both sides of the throat causing difficulty in swallowing. The lyph nodes were so big and painful
3. A very high fever
4 Headache and vertigo
5. Stiff neck
6. Nausea (NOPE, not preggie yet)

Guess what? Iman took my body temperature using the digital Braun Thermoscan and the reading was 39.8C. Eh! tingginyer. Thought that the digitalized gadget is over sensitive so tried again and again it was rising. Then I started to feel my whole body ached to the xtend I couldn't even lift Dak Dina Debot. Nak bangun pun tak boleh, nak telan airliur pun tak boleh

Mayday, Mayday! Got to call babah and ask him to send me to the hospital. Babah rushed me to the Emergency unit and have to wheeled chair and the nurse took the temperature again... 41.2C and I have started shaking tapi kuatkan semangat jer. I got to asked for a bed from the brok-brek2 nurses and waited 40 minutes for the doctor to attend patients in Emergency unit. Acute Tonsilitis !!! Later was dripped and given voltaren by IV and 2 hours of rest, then sent me to the ENT specialist and sending us everywhere to do the bloodtest, pay the bill, get the receipt, go back to the lab etc etc. So turun lift naik lift abis masa kat situ. At this point of time I should give a credit to Gleanegles Intan or Pantai Medical Centre, KL. Wish a ada kat situ. Pity babah dok usung Ilham and Dina. Nasib baik Dina tido! Ilham tolong tolak wheel chair. hehe

Later balik... just rest, hope to recuperate soonest possible as nak Raya sangat nih. Kesian kat babah and anak2. kacang dah goreng and buang kulit tapi tak sempat buat kuahnya lagi. sigh. InsyaAllah, sempat lagi... so time to telan ubat and get well.

NOW!!! Mama just wish mak were here or we were in Malaysia. Amiss something already as I was actually always busy in the kitchen with mak and kak Long during ends of Ramadhan. Preparing and menganyam Ketupat, Rendang, serunding, kuah kacang, Kuah Lodeh, kurma ayam etc etc. That is mak's menu, every year..... Never thought that the feelings was tormenting and this torturing. My heart weeps...

Mak, Atuk Khamis and the cucus (pic ; taken last Raya - Baby Dina was only 10-day old)

Iftar of the day - 28th day of Ramadhan

Nor and Fadzil in Qusais invited us to join them and few other friends for Iftar. Today mama and babah memang datang bawak perut ajer, sorry ye Nor tadi masa abis kat sepital jer. Had nasi Ayam...yummy, fishball soup, variety of kuehs and teh tarik. Again same agenda, makan-makan, solat and sembang-sembang. To the host, terima kasih banyak-banyak, moga dipermurahkan rezeki.
