More than just a Fall

Health

Red is an auspicious colour during Chinese New Year. Oh well, on the 12th day of Chinese New Year, we had RED indeed!

Bloody Red! *super eyes rolled*

[For my non-Chinese readers, we celebrate Chinese New Year for 15 days.]

Never did we expect a fall during a soccer game at the parade square in school during recess could cause my Binbin to be in this state:

fall9a

He fell on 2nd March and my thoughtful boy did not want us to worry, he limped all the way home from school. Thereafter, he could not straightened his right leg at all. After putting Aloe Gel on his wound 2x, the exterior was healing fast. Just before we could celebrate, he knocked that wounded knee onto the edge of his wooden study table. My heart felt like it was stabbed by a thousand knives when I saw him burst into tears!!!

This was how it looked when he came home from school:

fall1

After knocking on the edge of the table, it became this:

fall2

*sigh* Then on, he limped even more. His fall in school also hurt his hip and his elbow, but they were just bruises without blood, unlike his knee. When he rests his arm on the edge of the table while doing his school homework, he would scratch the tender elbow occasionally, causing him to twitch in pain. When I held his hand and my hand hit his hip accidentally, he would “tsk” in pain too. In short, he is almost untouchable!

Every move of mine must be made with extra care when I am near him.

After 1 more application of the Aloe Gel at night, I sent him to bed. The next morning, the layer of dried blood was well formed and Binbin could stroke the so-called wound without going “tsk” or “ahhh” in pain.

However, I noticed that he had to bend his knee more than the previous day and the injured area started to swell!

fall3fall4

I realised that I was wrong to think that it was recovering. The exterior yes, BUT NOT THE INTERIOR. I do not want him to limp in school with that heavy school bag. Furthermore, his classroom is at level 4 !!! Taking the lift in school is not an option for the students unless he/she is on crutches or has a medical certificate to prove that he/she cannot climb the stairs or there is special permission granted by the teacher.

Hence, I decided to let Binbin stay at home to rest, instead of putting him at risk of hurting himself again, especially when limping was still his way of moving around.

Binbin was holding onto walls and furniture as he limped around the house. His limping got worse as the swelling grew. Something was very very wrong. After discussing with Allan, we decided to bring him to KK hospital at 10pm+.

I wanted to go with them so badly, but I could not because its unfair to make Kitkit stay at home alone or keep him awake if we bring him along to the hospital with us; remembering that he still has school the following day. So I stayed at home while Allan drove Binbin to the A&E.

Though my body was not in the hospital, my mind was… Totally cannot concentrate on anything while I was at home. Kept holding onto my phone and waiting for my Watsapp tone to ring. Hoping for updates, ANY UPDATES, from Allan…

Allan knows me well and gave me updates often; big or small, or even when there’s nothing at all, he would send photos to me….

fall5 fall6 fall7 fall8

After the X-Ray result was out, the doctor said there were too much blood ‘blocking‘ the view. The ‘too much blood’ resulted in the swelling and the visibility of the bone was affected too as a result. The doctor could not see if there were any hairline fractures on the bone. However, he told Allan to rest assured that there were no major damage done to the bone. In order to know if there are any hairline fractures, Binbin needs to go back for another X-Ray a week later. By then, hopefully the ‘too much blood’ would be gone.

To prevent hurting the injured area, Binbin had to be on cast till the next visit. *heart drop*

fall8a

And crutches will be his new toy……….

fall9b fall9

*heart pain*

I told Allan to inform me when he has parked his car at our place, so that I could go down to help to hold Binbin or help to carry things. When I went down, I saw an exhausted Father and Son. Binbin tried to walk with his crutches, but he was so tired and was not used to it, he made a few baby steps and lost balance!!! Thank goodness I was there to hold him! I could not imagine what would happen if he had another fall !

Another fall was the last thing I want on my wishlist, hence I told Allan to carry him home, while I carry everything else: medication, bag, right shoe, pants etc.

Doing such things at almost 1.30am is both tiring and heart aching….

Oh Well, I always tell myself that NO MATTER how bad things may seem, there is always something to rejoice in.

Thus, I have to say I am very grateful that no operation whatsoever was required and my dear Binbin can be home safely, sleeping on his bed and I get to be with him as he takes each restricted step for the next 7 days….

PS : We put the phone beside him on purpose; for him to call us, in case he needed to go to the toilet in the middle of the night.

As a result, the next X-ray is scheduled on 11th March and Binbin is on Medical Leave till 12th March. If the second X-ray turns out well, he should be back in school by then, otherwise… Hmmmm…. he would be having extended ‘school holidays’.

As much as he loves skipping school, this is definitely NOT one of the way….

*sigh*

Giveaway – Aloe Sample

Health


Ever since I did this post on Facebook :

AloePost

 

I had been having private messages and calls from different people.
“I thought you create Websites and sell to people?”
“You told me that you are selling Water Filtration System last week, how come change product again?”
“Aren’t you selling cosmetics? I remember you organise make-up parties.”
“You said you managed to slim down because of your company’s program, aren’t you selling weight loss things?”
“Didn’t you say you’ve got Pet products to let my dog try? How come you are selling Aloe now? Why change?”
“What EXACTLY are you selling?”

 

*laugh*
The answer is “YES! I am STILL providing those things and services. I’m selling Almost Whatever that any human or pet needs or wants.”
Nothing has changed.
Well, I Franchised an International Online Shopping Mall.

Just like when you go to a big shopping mall, what do you see? what can you buy from there?
Its the same for my case, the only difference is I am bringing the Entire shopping mall onto the Internet.
So you can shop 24/7 anywhere (ALMOST anywhere. Sorry, we don’t deliver to the North Pole and other remote places. Don’t think they have internet access there anyway. *bleh*).

Of cos, the most common question was “Can you tell me what the dialogue says? I can’t read Chinese or my Chinese is poor.”
Then came my closer friends asking, “Hey! I thought you said your Chinese is poor? But you messaged your customer in Chinese!”
Well, my hanyu pinyin is GOOD, and I have Allan to help, when needed!
So I survived!
*laugh*
But if you ask me to WRITE Chinese words, oh no!
Feel almost like walking naked in the rain.
Totally helpless!
*cover face*

As parents, Allan and I understand that when kids are sick, parents can forget about getting a good rest.
Recently I have 4 friends who had to bring their kids to the hospital, because it had passed the normal operating hours of neighbourhood clinics, and their child/children was/were unwell.
Most were down with fever.

If you follow my blog long enough, its easy to spot the member in my family who has health issues often.
Yes, its Kitkit.
Ever since I started this Online Shopping Mall Business, the partners I work with are Professionals in their own trade and I discovered a few things which helped Kitkit and my family; and now extended to friends, relatives and customers.

One of the things which helped Kitkit alot was Aloe and Digestive Enzymes.
And the dialogue I posted on Facebook was mainly about Aloe and other items which my customer bought from me.

Let me do the translation for friends who requested for it.

Aloe1

Customer : “I gave them (her own kids) the 3 packets of drink which you passed to me.”
Me: “What’s their reaction?”
Customer: “They did not like it in the beginning, but after that they said it was tasty.”
Customer: “Help me order 1 box, can?”
Me: “I have one extra box at home. Don’t need to wait.”
(It takes about 2 weeks to reach Singapore after order had been placed. Each box contains 16 packets.)

 

Aloe2

 

Me: “Good Morning! Just to let you know, the product helps DIGESTION, SORE THROAT, a SPEEDIER Recovery after being ill and MOUTH ULCER.”Customer : “Ok, Thank you.”
Customer: “Wow! A lot of benefits. Not bad.”

24th May 2014
Me: “Hi Hi, Are you interested to try the natural flavour of Aloe? I can pass you a sample to try. I prefer the Strawberry and Kiwi Flavour though.”
Customer: “Sure! Pass me one packet then.”

Aloe3

28th May 2014
Customer : The Natural Aloe Flavour, which you passed to me, I have tried. The taste is still ok, just a little sourish. Yesterday, I was having SORE THROAT, I drank it and now my throat is fine.
Me: “Wonderful! This is because it can reduce inflammation. I’m happy for you.”

(Aloe is for both Adult and Children)

 

Aloe4

 

Me: “This item (Aloe) has improved Kitkit’s digestive system and immunity system. How many packets do you have left?”
Customer : “Five only. I feel that after the kids (her own kids) have drank this, they (their health) have improved too. As the weather is warm recently, we had been using the air-conditioner, and the kids did NOT have runny nose anymore. The other day, I heard my son cough, I gave it to him and he stops coughing.”
Me: “Awesome!”

 

Aloe5

 

Customer : “The kids missed your Aloe. I gave them Omega3.”
Me: “Are they ok with Omega3? Where did you store the Omega3?”
Customer : “Fridge.”
Me (clapped and thumbs up)
Customer : “They are ok with Omega3.”
Me : “Great! Its very good for immune system. So do you still have Aloe? I have extra at home.”
Customer : “I forgot how much is a box of Aloe. Do you have 2 boxes at home?”

(Omega3 is Binbin’s favourite currently because of the fruity flavour and because its served cold. Unlike Kitkit, whose favourite is Digestive Enzymes.)

 

Aloe6

 

Customer : “Ok, then sell me two boxes first.”
Me : “No problem!”
Me : “Did your health improved after drinking OPC ? Need to drink everyday to be effective.”
Customer : “Very good. My SENSITIVE NOSE has improved.”
Me : “Fantastic”
Customer : “Whenever I go to my mother’s house, I will have runny nose without fail. The other day when I went over (to her mother’s house), my nose was fine.”

(OPC for kids and adults are packed differently.)

Aloe7

Me : “The day before yesterday, my runny nose was terrible…So Angry! Drank 3 caps of OPC + 1 cap of Calcium, got rid of the naughty nose!”
Me : “Why will you have this issue (runny nose) whenever you go to your mother’s house?”
Customer : “Because of the quality of the air, I will have this problem whenever I return to my mother’s place. (not in Singapore)

=================
Whenever Kitkit or Binbin start to show signs that they are going to be sick, Aloe is THE thing, which I will give to them BEFORE the illness really strike.
So far, no visits to the doctor ever since they started taking it.
*fingers crossed*

It has benefited my sons and I hope it will benefit your children too.
So, for those who have interest in this Aloe drink, please contact me and I will deliver 2 packets of Aloe to you PERSONALLY.
