Not Straight

I am not straight. Having said that, I need to tell you that I am not gay either. How to be gay when I am crooked, I ask you?

Just that, I have been coughing for 3 months now. What with me being allergic to penicillin-group of antibiotics plus being pregnant leave the doctor limited choices of medications to prescribe to me. The cough has gotten so bad that the chest, back and stomach hurt like nobody’s business. Yesterday morning, a huge cough came and I could hear/feel something in my back went pop. I kid you not. Pop like a champagne cork. And this time, i am not exaggerating at all. Cough till my back exploded. The pain? Excruciating. For a good few minutes, I was paralysed. Couldn’t move. White searing pain. Breathing hurts. Moving hurts.

And so today, I am not straight. I am crooked. Bent. I am the hunchback from gua hantu!

Went for check-up just now and looks like the baby will be delivered early. Instead of 27 March, doctor said let’s do it on 24 March. Sorry Kak Jasmin, doctor refused to do it on 7th. Anedra told me that 24 March is Kak Teh’s birthday. Then, may my kid be as good a writer as Kak Teh is!

Dot wants to name the baby Maria Barbie. Sun wants the baby be called Maria Tiga (as in Ultraman Tiga). Tough choices!

Rest well Ood!

24 March? That's a great date I concur.

Since my daughter's 24th February, anyone's born on the 24 of ANY month is fine by me. ;)

Oh no. Backpain is no joke, dearie! If u're considering epidural, it can triple the pain. Warm bath soaks (the hotter the better) n lots n lots of cushions are a must. Gotta also take care of the cough, another back killer! Aiyo... how to help ni. Save for u coming to the spa for a relieving back massage, I can only wish u all the luck. Think of happy Peter Pan thots. And don't worry. U'll do just fine.

kak teh,
i have no doubt whatsoever as to how straight and lurus you are. 24th it will be then!

theta,
thank you! 24th and a Monday! Err... Mondays are good too right? The Prophet wa born on a Monday...

shidah,
my back is back to okay. The cough remains though. I cringe to think how painful it will be to cough when i have stitches... yikes!

ely,
can you blow some kisses down here for my baby? So she'll be as buttony cute a your preciouss. Love you, ely.

tigress,
going to you for back rub is definitely out of the question now. Still got tonnnnnnnes to do, will have load of homework to finish up this weekend. And since i dont have Mak to care for me during pantang this time, this weekend will be a weekend of cooking for confinement food. Yamtuan has been trained to work with the microwave.

Think happy Peter Pan thoughts? Once they drug me, i think that will be easy peasy! Load me up!

Bro Jo,
waitttttt a minute. Jamaluddin Jarjis is from Pahang - like you. And you are a Jo. Hmmm... is it possible that you are THE Dato Sri himself?

Maaf ya Dato' Sri... tak pegi menembak rusa weekend ni? Mesyuarat kabinet dah tak payah pegi, free lah yek? Hehehe...
