Hi everyone, this is the first time i post in this category. Hope that you all can share with me on my kids issues, cos i really feel quite depressed by it. Im a housewife, stop work since i married, so yeah finance is really big issues for us. I have 2 kids, my girl (3 yrs plus) n a son (22 months). So this is my story...
my daugther she got squint eye (outwards) but luckly its still mild. Went to Kandang Kerbau Hospital when she like 2yrs old, the eye specialist told my hubby that her quint eyes due to nasal bone that not yet fully develop. She told us to wait like 4-5 yrs old, but after the check up i keep on watching her eyes progress... It doesn't get better at all after a year. So we went to TTSH for eye specialist, she told me its passed down genetically. So its from my hubby side >_<" i never knew squint can be pass down, or else it will be different thing now. So few test being done n its a positive she need eye surgery on it, but luckly i insist on pursuing the matters when she is 3. If i waited like the Kandang Kerbau Hospital eye's specialist (4-5 y.o) by then her sight will be damage, her 3D vision n will need a glasses. Next month my girl is going for the surgery n also a week before will do some final check up before the operation. I feel so sad to think so young yet need to do surgery, everyday my heart is crying.
Then my problem not stopping there, i went for my son's health assesment like he 20months old... The doctor refer us to KK side for further check up, cos he may have delay on his motoric n speech skills. So we did see few specialist, starting for development... N they told me yes he is having a delay on motoric n speech. Then Went for assesment on the motoric, he delayed like 4-9 months from his age sigh.... Then after that she told me to involve him for EPIC programme, i would love to engange him but few things holding me back. First is no one can take care of my girl, so i cant leave her alone at home. Then main thing is finance, we been struggling each month just to survive... Their neccesity like milk, diaper n their daily food are priority for me. But beside all that i really want him to have some progress especially on speech. He cant say much except nenen when he wants milk, other than that he only can shake head if he dont want the thing i giving him. He can take biscuit n feed himself thou, can drink from straw, can even know how to put out his hands when wearing clothes, plus he can lift up his leg if he sees me with his socks.
Then we also saw specialist at ENT, done some audiology test... They said he have some fluid, but after a month the fluid had dried... The doc said the fluid caused by flu, since the passage from ear to nose blocked. Nothing can be done n its common among kids til they 7 y.o
Then we also see neurology for his muscle n reflect, he said his normal. But he also comparing my son with my girl, since my girl also have slight delay. But at least she can walk without support at 18 mths, but my son been active walking up n down the bed without support just recently. Previously he only stand n walk without support on the bed n he prefer crawls. So im not so concern on his motoric skills, since he had showed me some improvement after the few visit. But the neurologist told me, he may wanna do some test on my sons root core or smthg n may need to do brain scanning. He mentioned to me if the brain that causing all of this, he cant help... In other words no cure :'( The moment i heard that my eyes filled with tears n hugged him tightly. Sigh.... I cant afford to pay for this 2 test... Brain scan will cost more than 1k, i dont know about the root core test.
Anyone having some issues regarding my son? If have do share with me at least i can feel usefull to my son, im so stressed up n sad thinking for both. Especially the young one. I also hope all the mummies here can pray for both of my kids, cos i dont know what im gonna be if smthg bad happens to them. Thanks for listening n God Bless you All ^_^
