Another Visit To The Dr
I just come to realise that Zara has this little raised ridge (about 1cm long) right in the middle of her skull where her hair line is. I don't know when it started to be there, but 2 weeks ago, I could feel that very tiny little bump (feels like touching a tooth pick covered under a blanket), and it got me worried. I wanted to slap myself for not bringing this up during the last visit to the Paed. After worrying for another week, I thought I'd bring her to the Dr to have a look. When I told Zara we were going to see the Dr, she immediately whined, "Don't want. Doh-tuh." She probably remembered the injection she got. She was as usual very cheerful while waiting for the Dr, playing with the toys in the waiting room. When it was her turn, she dragged me away from the door leading to the Dr's clinic, and put up a fight when the Dr wanted to feel the bump and measure the circumference of her head. The Dr told me this could have been caused by the fusing of the bones in her skull, since she's developing normally, and the measurement of her head is within normal range, I should not be worried but I do have to monitor her to see if there's any abnormal behaviour or if the bump size increase. How could I not worry? Even after seeing him, I'm still worried! I don't like to think about anything which can 'possibly' happen, or which needs monitoring. ~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~ On a lighter note, I asked Zara if she wanted to play with a Dr set I bought before Christmas. Me : Zara want to play Dr Dr? Zara : Don't wang. Pay. Doh-tuh Doh-tuh Me : *showed her the set* See, so many things for Zara to play. Zara can pretend to check Mr Blue to see if Mr Blue is sick sick. Zara : Don't wang. Me : Why Zara don't want? Zara : Sked sked (Scared) ~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~ For those of you who understand Chinese, click here for a meaningful song which is dedicated to all parents, I could really relate to it now, after being a mum for 16months.
