Happy Birthday, Samantha…

Hospis Malaysia

When Samantha was first admitted to GHKL due to her 2nd episode of vomiting and that was her 3rd admission since birth. That was when she started to feed via a feeding tube.  We were asked to purchase the feeding machine as both Darling and myself are working in private sector and we do not […]

Without Her…But Having Him(s)

It has been 2 weeks… So not used to not having her around. She used to keep me busy – making her milk, sterilizing her bottles, keep watch of her feeding time, administering her medication, bathing her, nappy changing, washing, drying and folding her tiny clothes and organizing her closet. Missed kissing her, stroking her […]

Goodbye Samantha…

Samantha is Back Home

After spending 6 days in NICU, finally Samantha got the green light from the doctor to be discharged last Saturday. She looks chubby and rosier upon discharged because of the IV drips.  Hope she continues to be chubby and have rosy cheeks like Mommy.  Not only she managed to gain back the weight she lost but […]

Samantha is Admitted

Since my last post about Samantha’s vomiting spell, her condition worsen where typically no food can stay in her stomach. She got thinner and lethargic. We brought her for a review yesterday and was prepared to get her admitted.  Good thing she vomited in front of the pediatrician and he could see how forceful is […]

Samantha – The Challenges

Baby Samantha is 3 weeks old today.  I am still learning in taking care of her who requires more tender loving care.  Still working out the best schedule for her which includes her milk time, vitamins time and massage time.
