Last Wednesday, Amar has done it again..
I was beginning to cook lunch at around 3pm ( we had late breakfast ) and suddenly I heard Amar was crying...at first i ignored - coz he always likes to scream over a small matter - but this time he came to me crying with his finger in his nose and said " Mummy ....plastecine.."( a modelling clay I bought for Ayska to use for her art class in school )
OMG ---- I was panicked.... tried to look into his nose...tried to pick it out at first - but his nose starts to bleed... I was horrified - and he was sneezing and crying..i felt no air coming out from the left nostrils - while panicking I was actually hoping it will come out together with the mucus - well nothing came out...
Called my other half who is not in town... "...please get him to the clinic and let me talk to him"
He managed to convince Amar to go and see da doctor , earlier he was screaming refusing to go to the clinic.
Went to the clinic - by now he stopped crying...Doctor look into his nose with somesort of handy mini microscope..and sure enuf the doc says that there are 'foreign-body' and i have to bring him to a hospital and she will write a letter - I chose Selayang Hospital. The hospital, she said may have the suction thing and Amar must not eat anything 6 hrs before they do any procedure. I went out from the docs room thinking....
I looked at the watch..its 5 pm...me and my kids are mega hungry... we have to eat, I asked weather i could just go the next day.. as, if i go now... you knowlah public hospital - the waiting and "confirm-warded" and i dont have enuf cash for me to just bring him to the ENT clinics... Doc said; ok but Amar cannot pick his nose and must be in constant observation..by me..
ok then...lets go for lunch..I said to my kids
Had chicken rice - everybody is eating 'viciously'...
On the way back home - I was telling Ayska that she has to throw the plasticine and no more plasticine in the house again and no other little little things like beads in the house too..Amar has this habit to put stuff in his nose - about a year ago he actually put in a small bead ( i dont have any idea where that came from) - we were horrified also that time... we left it in his nose for a night..and Thank God the next day we managed to pick it out..
As we reached home - Amar says" Mummy..rasa macam dah takder dah la plasticine dalam hidung" ( felt the plasticine has gone)
" Are you sure? "
" Ha dah takde dah"
I looked again in his nose - cant really see...press his nose..felt the breathing..hmmm...theres air..
" Did it fell off just now? "
" Tak tau"
I checked again - it seems that the nostril is cleared
I assumed either it fell out or it went down his throat while he is eating/drinking...
However... I monitored his breathing ... its back to normal.. Thank Goodness
..but still..stressed out...
"Ayska!!..have you thrown the plasticine"
" No more plasticine in the house you hear me"
" Ok...but you bought it "
Ughhh " You wanted it lahhhh..."
" Amar!..the next time you put anything inside your nose..I vacuum your nose ..nak??!!"
" Tak mauuuuuuuu"
