.:A Doctor, A Scalpel and lots of Pain.:.
1.43 am of the morning of 23rd January 2007, I just could not shut my eyes.My left chest was beaming with spikes of pain.The swelling had become so bad that I have grown a breast on my left chest.
It all started 3 days back when the first stage of the swelling was visible. It did not hurt but the swelling was pretty bad so I had to visit a GP. Jokingly I told the GP "Doctor, I think I have breast cancer" when he asked what was wrong with me. He laughed and called me silly.It was nothing he said as it could be the swelling due to the flu that I have.He gave me some medication to reduce the swelling.No antibiotics were given then.
Over the weekends , the swelling did not go down.There were absences of pain but not as atrocious as Monday night.I just popped in pain killers to relieve the pain.It did not work very well.Came dawn , I was still trying to sleep with the pain spiking through my veins.Told my mum about my condition and I was sent to the specialist center at Taman Megah.As I waited I prayed that it was nothing serious and vowed not to make fun of conditions like this anymore.My name was called.The doctor checked me , explained to me that there is a growth which has become infectious.He did mention that it was not serious and there are cases such as mine.However , what shock me most is that I need to do a minor surgery right away to take the puss and whatever rubbish that was resides internally. I was utterly speechless in a state of shock.
Soon after, as I lied on the bed I keep thinking about how am I going to go through it.Doctor got ready and gave me a local anesthetic to reduce the pain.I closed my eyes as the stinging pain of the needle did hurt.Opening my eyes, looking at the scalpel that the doctor is holding really struck a lot of fear in me.I really wished I was put to sleep and see none of these.Blood was oozing out as the doctor cuts a small opening to drain out the puss and nonsense.Cleaning to wound and dressing it up.I was dazed and numb by everything I saw and felt.I thank God that He brought me through it.It was a nightmare.
I am still recovering from that minor surgery.I still feel the pain as the wound is taking sometime to close up as the it is being pressured by the puss which is oozing out.Pray that I would recover fast I cant stand sleeping on the bed the whole day and do nothing. I cant really do much vigorous movements until the wound has properly closed.Under medication and condition such as this I have been told to stay away from some really delicious food.
Thanks for all who prayed for me, sms and called me about my condition.I really appreciate it...
poor thing. Take care ok. Hope you will feel better soon. Hugs.
Thanks Jie Jie hope to meet ya in Melbourne!!
Thank God u r fine =) get well soon my fren!! *hugs*
I think I said this to you like many times already but I still have to say it again... You must take care of the wound properly k, and YES.. no badminton UNTIL THE WOUND IS PROPERLY CLOSED.. Take care of the hygiene when cleaning and dressing the wound or else it'll get infected again...
See you soon =)

Thanks again for all your prayers it has been a blessing!!!!
.:The Remaining Days:.
24 more or less days I will be heading back Down Under.As usual I am having mixed feelings.Some I cant really explain and some I can pour it out.It has be exactly 2 months since I am back and a lot of things has happened.Good and bad alike.The best days are yet to come and the past few weeks have been great days for me.Melbourne I am back!!!!
Oh well, there are lots of things I wish to do before I go back.Here is a list.
1) BTW 1200 Examination
2)Shopping * So going to the get the shoe and coat i wanted*
3)Meet up with the remaining people that I have not met.
5)Have dinner with my extended families
6)Meet up with Campus Youth Leaders
Thats about it all, I think I missed out packing but that wont take long.I pack fast.I cant believe my holiday back home is coming to an end.Its blazing fast.Anyhow, I am going to enjoy every bit of my days here...
.:Happy is a Yuppie word:.
Indeed when you enjoy life , time passes by blazing fast.It has been 11 days since I last blogged.The days of the start of 2007 was soaked with joy, lot of joy. Somehow I am able to move on and think less about what has happened and going to happened.Everything just fits it perfectly.There a a few glitches here and there, but nothing dampened my spirit to be happy.
I would say my life is close to perfect, it would be with someone special to share it with.However life is still great.I shall dwell in bitterness all because I don't have someone to share my happiness with.Perhaps, if i had such perspective the past months I think my life would have been so much more pleasant.I hope that I remain to be like the for a year.I really want 2007 to as spectacular as the years before.
Check out my new kicks!!!! This is my new Asics Gel Rocket 2 indoor sport shoes.They just look great don't they. I have the privilege to try it out this weekend.The traction is awesome, its comfortable but I feel that is it a little bit on the heavy side.Prior to that, I have a new badminton racket.I have bought a few in the past months but this was the most expensive one I have every bought.
Behold, the mighty Yonex Titanium 10, the top range in the Titanium series.This is the latest colour scheme.I got a chance try it out this weekend.I felt the racket is great as the weight is distributed the way i want it to be.However, I am still not used to the racket.I can take me weeks or months.Overall it is a valued for money racket.
"Today is the day the Lord have made I shall rejoice and be glad in it"
i also bought new kicks!!! hahahaa
.:So what's in for 2007?:.
It is the very beginning of the year 2007, just 3 day in the year.The word bored is written all over my face literally.Moreover I am pretty lost and confused where I am heading to.A person that can feel insecure easily because things are not going the way I want it to be makes me a weakling.This is just something about me that I just cant seem to change.I really hate it when things does not turn out the way it should be.I know its life, I just want to rant it out.
Question is , how would 2007 be? For better or for worst ? I hope that it would be for better.However, things are so volatile where anything can happened.At time I am numb for feelings, deaf with sounds and tasteless with my tongue.Whats going on ? I want a glimpse of what is going on. Imagine being blind and at the same time stuck in a maze.Now thats a challenge.I want 2007 to be as smooth flowing as year 2003 where everything was really perfect for me.I just want a life that I read about and dreamed of.Perhaps, life has not started for me.The images of fun and excitement seems to be fading away slowly.Maybe because I am growing and things needs to go to another stage.Just maybe getting lost now is far better than getting lost later in life where there are more responsibilities.
I don't know what lies ahead of me in 2007.I just have to keep holding one , keep hanging in there until life fully blossoms.I wish I had God's calender, from there I would know what is in front of me and what am I heading to.Too bad there is no such thing.I hope and really wish for the best in the coming day.Life is an irony.I have set goals, but even if I don't achieve I know I might achieve something else.Maybe something better than I have set for myself.I will end off with a little something....Life is meant to be lived...and learntOpportunities are meant to be seized...and soughtRegrets are meant to be avoided...and acceptedThe past is meant to be relinquished...and rememberedThe present is meant to be enjoyed...and exploredAnd the future is just meant to be...God Bless 2007........
its definitely goin to b for the better...just hang in there n hv a lil' more faith.... bein happy or not, doesnt mean everythign has to fall into place, its abt u makign the decision to, by accepting both the perfect thigns n the flaws in ur daily life...oni diff is, in acceptin d flaws, u learn sumthin from it n tel urself its gonna b better, ALWAYS put on d positive spirit n hold on 2 ur faith....let d wind tk u thru d year, dun wory abt wat WONT happen, but rather be contented n ask urself wat u can do wf the things dat happens, always, whnever things turn bad, dun hold on to it too long, let the cloud go n u wil see the silver lining....
READ UP ON Psalms 37:4!!!! (put in into ur to-do-list everyday of d year)
life always full with uncertainty, n i always lost in the maze of my own where no one there to guide me out. But im lucky to have frens with me, so stick with ur frens when u are lost in ur maze.
ofcz everyone hopin for a better tomorrow but if things dun turn out the way we want them to be, we muz learn to accept. well, for me it really works, learn to accept those unhappy and unplanned destination^^
god bless u=)
I suppose that you are right about be being very worried about things that has not even happened.Yes, I shall be positive with things.Perhaps I am bored that is why i am being so negative.Thanks for the little revelation that i needed.
Yea where would i be without friends.Rather where would all of us be without friends.Accepting life as it is not an easy task but i am sure that with God's grace everything is possible..Thanks hearing me out
