Hubby and mum brought the kids to Sunway Medical for their routine jabs – MRR booster jab for HQ and Hepatitis A jab for QQ (hubby was clearing his leave days and I’m saving mine... how ironic…). Thanks, Mum!
Updated measurements of height and weight, as of 20 November 2009:
HQ then was at 4 years 6 months old
Height : 111 cm
Weight : 17.5 kg
QQ then was at 2 years 4 months old
Height : 93 cm
Weight : 14.5 kg
The koko didn’t want to take his jab, and when coaxed, he told the pead “Let meimei jab first, if she don’t cry, then I will jab.” Adui… when the nurse was preparing QQ for the jab, she told QQ “Kau sai lei la” (“It all depends on you”).
QQ was jabbed and did not utter a peep. So HQ wanted to act gallant too, quickly climbed up the bed and prepared himself for the jab. The moment the pead inserted the needle, HQ yelled “So pain! Stop! Stop!” Hahaha... HQ who almost never cries during his jabs when he was a baby started to act like one now!
The nurse brought out stickers to stop him from being fussy (mum said he was more angry than anything else – like he was tricked into being jabbed… hahaha). He chose 2 pieces of stickers and gave one to QQ.
Back home, QQ reported “Doctor jab me very painful, but I didn’t cry. Doctor jab koko, koko cry.” Whereas koko was being fussy about washing his buttocks for the fear that his wound will get wet *slap forehead*
And as usual, the stickers ended up on themselves... QQ and her peace signs.
