D178 : FILL YOUR DAY WITH LAUGHTER!

I love it how the nurses & staffs scribbles on my board. I’m JESUS, I got ressurected twice from ICU. 😅

I may be in hospital for a while due to my wound as I get acute pain from it.

Good news is I’ll have a break from chemo until 20th of Jan! The doctors don’t want to risk me not getting out of ICU the third time if we pushed it as my body need time to recover. I feel so lucky to be alive! There was even talk about having my less chemo than the scheduled plan. I’ll find out in January!

PS: There will be more hug coming.

D177 : Hugs tally 35. Don’t let bed bound stop you from hugging. Let the huggers come to you. I managed to rope all the staffs that came in for a hug ha 🙂

I had to move from bed 9 to 5A by noon. Apparently, no 9 is for special nuclear medicine patient and someone needs the room. My OT Rachel makes sure I have appropriate mattress in the new bed while I’m bed bound. Thanks Rach for getting it all sorted and organised for me 🙂

I have special people come to visit me too. My mum, Kim and Jes who kindly moisturise my dry skin 🙂 What a kind friend she is.

For the first time, I have to have someone helps me shower too. It would have been a horrifying event for me to be nude in front of someone else. But my pain makes me less care about dignity lol. Thank you nurse Lizzie for helping me scrub my body. I had to shower sitting down in the commode. I’m still weak standing up. It was nice to have a hot shower. I haven’t been able to have one since Saturday night. That shower took a lot out of me. I was feeling fresh and exhausted by the end of it. I desperately need my nap haha.

D177 : BE GRATEFUL THAT YOU ARE ALIVE

My wish for you is that
you feel alive,
loving who you are,
doing what you love.

Something happens that took me right in. I have never felt so peaceful in my life. Those pains broke down my wall of fear.

This is the second time I get out of ICU with even more LOVE to serve others.

D177: My sign thanks to Alana my nurse who cares for me last night. Got plenty of morning hugs too. I’ve got my oncology doctor and my pain doctors visited me early today.

The nurses who saw my wound feel sorry for me but the pain doctors Yvette, John and Noah? (apology if my chemo brain mixed this up) are getting me on top of it with several pain killers on board.

My oncology doctors Arsha and Shirley gave me good news that I’ll be on a month’s break chemo to give me time to heal my radiation wound. They do not want to risk me not getting out of ICU since I have had gone to ICU twice and the second time I stayed longer.

This 5 days ICU has changed me expontially. I came out with immense sense of peace and mindfulness.

NOTHING MATTERS BUT THE GIFT OF LIFE ITSELF.

The year almost end, the best time to reflect on what has happened, how it has changed you and what changes you want to happen in your life for your best year ahead.

PS: The day is still young even when I’m bed bound, I’ll have people come and hug me haha. I think my eyes is a bit puffy on the photos. I have happy tears this morning. I’m so blessed to be out of ICU!!

D176: GOODBYE ICU. HELLO WARD 9 ❤

Finally, leaving after 5 days in ICU at 7pm today. I have met so many kind nurses and doctors. You build relationship faster because ICU nurses work 12 hours a day. When you get really sick, you will get 1 on 1 nurse. Otherwise, you will get 1 on 2. I have experienced both. I’ll make a video on my ICU experience next time. It’s not just an eye opening but soul opening experience.

Unfortunately, I cannot interview any of my ward friends because they are just as sick often worse than me. ICU patients are not mobile as we are attached to so many cables. I have been bed bound since I was in ICU except when you are helped to be on the chair. Even then, it takes a lot of effort to move such a short distance.

Thank you Bron, Sarah, Ally, Kelly, Ruth, Anna, Lucy and Gill for looking after me. Especially, Sarah, Kelly and Gill who gave me bed bath. Now my tally is 4 times haha. Also, others who have shared their laugh and hugs with me. And, I found a laughter buddy called Cindy.

I have so many doctors, pain doctors and consultant to thank to as well.

Things will get worse before it gets better – life wisdom learned lol. I’ve been told it will plateau for 2 weeks before it gets better. At least that’s only 1 week to go to recovery. Skin is now in peeling, blistering, red and raw mode. Having it in sensitive area makes it worse and chemo makes it longer to heal. At least I’m out of ICU and into my second home ward 9 🙂 I’m in the best hands. I’m not sure how long I’ll stay here yet.

I’ll have to come visit ICU when I’m well 🙂

Morning hugs 🙂

I was in agony this morning. Lucky me, I got some awesome hugs (and drugs).

Thank you nurse Ami and Lucy (who has been looking after me but doesn’t want to be on pic ha). And, Dr. David who has been keeping an eye on me too.
