Angels Fall First (Nightwish)

Ooyah had a mishap this morning while I was in the bathroom. Fadelinah had placed Ooyah next to her in the centre of our bed and in the blink of an eye, she managed to crawl to the edge and subsequently fell off it. The loud cries from both Fadelinah and Ooyah sent me scampering out the bathroom only to see THAT bump on her forehead. I have never panicked so much my entire life and cried seeing the state that she was in. Nothing could hurt as much as seeing your baby in such pain.

We quickly bundled her into the taxi and headed to The Children’s Emergency at National University Hospital, where we were promptly attended to by their staff. Ooyah was inspected by one Dr Sharad Mohite, after which we were told it wasn’t a serious injury and that the swelling would subside over the next couple of days. However, we were told to watch out for vomiting and any signs of drowsiness within the next 72 hours; in which we would have to bring her back to the hospital immediately.

It’s now almost midnight and Ooyah’s sound asleep. She was jovial and playful when I returned home this evening, to the point of harassing me while I was digging into some pizza slices. And the swelling has gone down quite a bit. Fadelinah cried herself to sleep, still traumatised by the incident.

I’m sorry sayang … Papa and Mama will be more vigilant from now onwards.

  1. poor poor Ooyah! and poor poor Ooyah’s papa & mama! the first fall is always the most heartwrenching. insya-Allah takde ape2 lah. kalau dah boleh kacau papa, kira ok lah tu. take care you guys!

  2. Wow, what a close one. So happy nothing too serious. Thinking about you. Take care.

  3. Pinky, it was traumatic for all of us. I’d rather fall from 3 storeys down rather than have her fall of the bed.

    Suz, thanks for your well wishes. She is back to her normal self, all playful and chirpy. Still praying that there are no negative repercussions from her fall.

  4. First of many bumps and bruises. In the falling off bed game, the score is Booboo 1 – Momo 2. Hope Ooyah keeps it at just 1!

  5. Hhmmm … this is one game I don’t mind her scoring as low as possible.

  6. aisyah had one fall from the bed too few months back no matter how vigilant we are. im sure ooyah will be ok. 🙂

  7. Yeah … she’s back to her usual self albeit a bruised forehead.
