I’m really proud of Terry recovery achievement over the week. Finally, my dear Terry boy is on 95% back to his usual self. Day by day, he picks up well on those words that he used to say and he also can read out those words that I used to teach him during those “silent” days. I can’t expect anymore further on his speech. He performs so well to me. Other than that, he likes to smile a lot now. Currently he not needs us to support him to walk anymore. Now, he walks like he just learns how to walk, still shaking, but so far not fall down.
Last week, doc giving us green light to shower him. After more than a month long, he back to the bathroom again. He cried badly for it, I not able to hold him and shower him. Whenever bath time and rubbing time is the terrible time for him with those ointments need apply right after it.
He can sleep tightly at night and nap back to 1 time for 2.5 hours. For his food intake, after the long night sleep the first bottle of milk will be around 6.30am-7am (sometime earlier). Later in the around 9am+ after he wakes, we will give him a hot bowl like meehoon, kueh teow or mee suah soup. He super loves that. Sometime he wants snack right after his proper meal and that we will give bread or biscuit. Lunch time normally will be his nap time, wake up from nap take a bottle of milk and dinner around 6.30pm-7pm. Since after discharged, he does not like to eat porridge anymore, he wants rice. There starts his fully solid meal on rice+soup. We make all soups that suitable for his lungs recovery and on those for more protein like beans. So far, he eats well on that and able to finish what we given, sometimes he even wants more.
We still stroll him down to the park and playground area, knowing that he not able to walk a far distance yet. We put him on the slide too few days ago and need much support to play it. Many eyes were look on him, on his hand and some might think that why a big boy still sit on stroller. Especially those mummies and joggers that used to saw him around before accident happen. Yeah, that cause some uncomfortable to me, but I just ignore their sight and concentrate on Terry.
If only the back wound recover it will be easier for him to move around. It still need a month more for fully recover. The wound is the complicated part now, as it grows a very thick layer of dead cell there and according the doc he needs to do something to it today, to peel it off or to burn it off. I still don’t know how he goes about it yet as the previous medicine been told that it will eat up the dead cell. It doesn’t seem work much on it.
May be we fix a safety door gate between the kitchen now is kind of late thing to do after incident happen, but it is still better to put one to prevent any other accident happen to the small one. We bought the Sweet Cherry door gate from Carrefour. After we look around for the gate and its extension, we choose that as it is durable, nice and of cause cheaper too (RM140).
