I am a terrible mom.

For the last 2 weeks Daya has been complaining of ear ache. Kita suruh makan ubat je and don't ponteng sekolah .

We took her to the GP and she got Antibiotics

last night she could not sleep. Her ear was hurting her.

This morning we took her to PCMC ENT - the diagnosis:

right ear- infected. Both ear- glue ear. Solution- antibiotic and Surgery.

Kesian daya... She had a party to go to after that, and dad sent her, so I did not see her from the time she went to the hospital sampailah the time she came home. When she finally saw me she cried and said..mummy the doctor said i have unhealthy eardrums.

It turned out her eardrums are very "dull" . The doc had inserted a camera in her ears and we saw the pics. Both eardrums were affected although the right is worse than the left. Doc gave topical antibiotics and ubat, and then we have to go again sometime this week, to see how it is, and if it doesn't settle, he would have to do ear surgery on her. I am so thankful to hear that it doesn't involve cutting her up , the doc will just insert something in her ear and nick the ear drum, and then insert a tube to drain the fluid that has pooled in there.

I read more on this and am horrified to find out that it could lead to hearing loss! Dad said it may not be too late.

Dad said , looking at his fourth-born sleeping,, the one that I think most resemble my mother in law , heheheh, (or stitch in liloandstitch depending who you talk to) "We are too busy". He was a bit angry with me, him, us, the parents, for not paying enough attention to her ailment. alah..with fivekids someone is always complaining sakit tanganlah, kaki lah, mata ?

There you have it. The dilemma and guilt of working parents.

Hope it clears up without the need for any surgery!

Kena masukkan tube ke? or u r talking about a different kind of surgery? Kesian..ear infection memang menyakitkan..kita yang besar pun tak tahan, what more kids kan?
My daughter julia used to have bad ear infection jugak..dalam sebulan at least 3 times..was advised to put tube in her ears but luckily before we coulld even decide what to do..she stopped having ear infection..Alhamdullilah! I hope your daughter will get better soon.

What was the cause? My girl used to complain sakit telinga. & it turned out, her ear was too clean. Sebab selalu sangat korek telinga with the cotton bud. The earwax is there for a reason...

Ya lah, these kids kadang2 sakitnya sikit aje, tapi drama aje lebih. But I guess it's better be safe than sorry.

HI lana...we hope no need lah..epi will take her to a hearing test today or tomorroow and hopefully there is no hearing loss. 20% hearing loss memang sah kena insert tube tu

Hi Yani...lucky for Julia! Yah, masukkan tube je but involve g.a kan so im worried abt that. Hope the same thing happens to Dahlia!

this daughter of mine pun suuuuka pakai the qtip to clean her ears so at first I thought she had injured it with the cotton bud. The cause could be her neverending selsema..

Kids kan,?? Today Sara pulak sakit kepala..I could not be too worried sebab today is macam coincidence je..
