SH*T Happens!????

Well... we were back at the hospital again yesterday! Little Missy Poo-Poo decided not to poo-poo this time! 2 whole week!! We were getting pretty worried! Luckily, there is this really nice Paediatrician that we met when we first came to the hospital with Keira not wanting to P.U. We have been keeping in touch with her and keeping her up to date with what's going on with Keira too. So she told us to come in to see her yesterday as it's been 2 weeks. She asked if we wanted her to admit her into the ward again. I'm like NO~~~ We finally all came to the conclusion that she is purging, just really clear and watery, instead of the 'normal' poo-poo! But when we got home in the afternoon, she did 2 huge big 'normal' stinky poo-poo, one after the other. AIYO~~~ Luckily, we didn't admit her! or myself! hehehe

So, while we were there we started talking about the NICU, coz that's where we met and where she worked. There was this girl that I met while I was there, that had her baby at 24wks gestation, and the baby was 690 grams at birth, after a month of being in the NICU, she is now 1.3kg, Doc told us that they normally release the babies that small at around 1.9kg. So I asked if they had babies that small, often. Was told they have just released a baby 2 days ago at 1.9kg, born 1.3kg at birth, by a small mum, literally and physically. The mummy was 12 years old!! ????!!!! AND.. that's not the worst of it! The husband of the 12 year old is a 29 year old man!!! SH*T happens??!!! WTF??? (NB. Jacob here - I was horrified to hear this, and that 29 year old should be arrested for paedophilia.)

And while I was pregnant and going for the local clinic/mid-wives check-ups, they were telling me that they have had lots of foreign ladies (Viet, Indon, Thai..etc) that are married to local men, that are tested HIV positive and still go on to have babies... and I was relating this to Doc, and she told us yes, but the babies will only live to a MAX age of 4. SH*T happens??!!! WTF???

Then she told us that a 6 year old was admitted with having drunk 'Clorox', her mum wasn't any much better, she has multiple cuts on her wrist. BUT they were both released 2 days later!!! SH*T happens??!! WTF??? The family didn't wanna treat the real problem, which was mum being suicidal and needing to go on meds. But it's God's gift right?

So is a brain.

hi chiwi, glad your precious little one is OK again. thx for sharing your stories, truly tragic and sad to read! What the world has come to!? Hv fun with the new baby, big hugs.

Aida : Well.. like Ben, she is poo-ing all the 2 weeks poo now.. :) We have to top her up as she hasn't gain much weight at all during the last month.. only about 0.4kg. So everyone is asking us to top her up with formula.. I'm not really keen with the idea, but that's what everyone is recommending us to do.

mº¿ºsh, brecht & nora : Thanks.. we will have fun once we have some sleep back! :p I'm normally a walking zombie by the time 3pm rounds around.

Dee, my 10 year old Adil has a lazy bowel ... since small, I guess. At times he poos only once a week. Spends like an hour in the loo. But anyway, glad that Kiera pooed .., hahaha the things we moms are thankful for!

Those people must have shitty lives, poor them. I can't imagine though, at this age and times, a 12 year old being 'married'????
