Akmal In The Hospital

there's so many updates missing but its been pretty hectic at home. typical, on my last couple of weeks at home, suddenly there's just not enough time in the day. akmal's cukur jambul will be updated later as i'm still waiting for the pictures from kakak.

akmal's been having on and off flu for a couple of weeks now. we took him to the nearby clinic 2 thursdays ago. gave him piriton and nose drops. it didnt work much. so we went to see his pead. he asked us to take akmal to the a&e for nasal suction, give him nose drops, administer suction at home and monitor him for the next 4-5 days.

when the flu didnt go away, we went back to dsh. this time, one look the doctor said...i think he needs to be admitted. he listened to akmal's lungs, he's already wheezing. hubby and i quickly planned our next couple of days. while he settled akmal into his room, i went back to pack clothes for akmal and me, enough until friday, and for the 3 boys to be left in school until thursday.

akmal had to be given nebuliser 4 hourly and the nurses had to do the nasal suction as often as possible.

















akmal after 2 nebuliser & 1 suction...


















and after 3 nebuliser, all ready for bed...

















the next morning he looked better. i certainly hoped so since he was woken up 3 times over the course of the night to be given the mask.

















the doctor made his rounds at 9am and stayed almost half an hour with akmal. he wasnt happy with akmal's development, especially when his oxygen level dropped so low, so akmal was sent to the high dependency unit (hdu). there he will be constantly monitored, nebuliser will be given and the nasal suction will be done more often.




















after 24 hours there, he looked better and the doctor gave the all-clear to return to the ward. alhamdulillah. now we just wait to see how long before akmal is discharged.

for now, i'm at home at the peak of my multitasking - doing laundry, airing clothes, another load of laundry and airing, folding clothes hubby washed yesterday, packing extra clothes for akmal and myself, cleaning the kitchen, charging my phone, clearing my inbox, praying, blogging and...watching american idol. all within 2 hours!!
