It Almost Became…

a devastating news to us but of course, when i received the bomb, i bore in mind that Fateha IS an extreme premature toddler.

Fateha had her monthly physiotherapy session and paediatric appointment yesterday. i was alone when accompanying my Little Pixie for her therapy. she seemed okay during her physio session, didn’t cry at all. she only yelped and was a little reluctant. then Mr Fauzan dropped the bomb which blasted my heart like it had been for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. but of course, i was able to accept the facts he passed to me.

a
this is an Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) splint which Little Pixie would most likely needed to wear on a daily basis, on both feet, when walking. both Mr Fauzan and A/Prof Lee said her muscles around her ankles were more tensed than before and her muscle tone had also increased higher. this caused both of her feel to collapse inwards when standing. if no correction made, Little Pixie may not be able to walk properly. there were 2 other options given to us:
1) to get a pair of shoe with very hard soles and to wear it at home
2) Botox injection (to strengthen her muscles)

PA080357 PA080356

just imagining her wearing AFO breaks my heart cos it would make her look handicapped uncool but it has to be done! i want her to recover from this so i immediately told A/Prof Lee that i want to make AFO for her. Botox could fetch up to thousands and for both feet, i could just die. AFO, which i was told by Mr Fauzan, would cost me about a few hundreds, after a government subsidy. yes, we’re subsidised patients.

please pray for Fateha’s recovery and this method of correction could stabilize her feet.

    Salam….
    Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) adalah belat (splint) yang ber kemungkinan besar akan diperlukan untuk dikenakan setiap hari, untuk mereka yang bermasalah kekejangan pada otot-otot pada betis dan juga pada nada (tone) aliran otot yang bersangkutan. AFO ini selain membantu mengurangi ketegangan Otot-otot di betis dan juga otot-otot yang berada di daerah tulang kering. Diharapkan dapat mengembalikan runtuhnya keupayaan kaki yang berlaku pada Feteha.
    Selain melakukan Psiotherapy, kenapa tidak menggunakan hidmat tradisi secara pengurutan. Saya juga berkeyakinan yang berurut dapat membantu lebih efektif. Saya tidak menggalakan penggunaan botok, kecuali telah gagal dengan cara-cara yang lain.
    Apa yang harus Terapi Urut lakukan. Oleh kerana gejala di sebakan kerana otot-otot yang tegang dan nada aliran otot yang tidak seimbang. Lakukanlah pengurutan di daerah pinggul, daerah peha dalam dan luar. Bila daerah ini sudah dilemaskan (di lunakan) baharulah beralih kebahagian betis dan bahagian depan ia itu otot-otot keberadaan di tulang kering.
    Oleh kerana anak ini (Fateha) baru berumur setahun lebih, di harap Terapi urut dapat mengadun tekanan yang santai ia itu tidak terlalu kuat. Gabungkanlah urutan Keluar dan masuk kearah jantung. Harus di ingat urutan keluar kearah jantung boleh gunakan tekanan yang agak kuat, tetapi tekanan yang kearah masuk kearah Jantung haruslah begitu santai. Salah melakukan boleh merosakan injap-injap saluran darah.
    Gunakan sedikit latihan regangan supaya otot-otot berkenaan dapat berfungsi dengan lebih baik dan dapat meningkatkan pergerakan yang lebih luas lagi. Ingat anak ini masih terlalu kecil, jangan lakukan di luar batasan. Jika ini di lakukan akan memburukkan lagi keadaan daripada membaikinya.

    Untuk mengetahui beberapa panduan Urut mengurut tradisional. Buatlah dengan Ilmu [engetahuan yang luas bukan sekadar hentam keromo atau kedah cuba dan kesilafan (try an error).
    Pada ibu-bapa yang mempunyai masalah anak seperti ini haruslah tabah, berusaha danberdoalah semuga Allah membantu kita . Insya-Allah.

    Hey You,
    Sorry I haven’t been around a lot lately! Took a break from the techy world for a while. ;-) I wanted to tell you one of Meg’s good friends just had one of these made and she’s doing wonderful and the kids don’t care, they just ask questions like what’s it for? Can I try it? I’m sure Fateha will rock what ever she has to wear, she’s a beautiful little girl (much like her mommy).
    I think when we become parents we begin to appreciate our own parents more knowing the joy and heart aches that go along with being a mom. You are a wonderful mom and Fateha will do well because of it. Lots of Love, prayers, and hugss sent your way. xx
