One tough cookie
"Hello, are you Nadhrah's mother?"
"This is her teacher. There has been an accident, and she's hurt."
"(oook....keep your calm..).. ok, how bad is it?"
"It's not bad, she's ok, but you need to take her to the doctor now. Can somebody fetch her?"
"(right.. if she's ok, why do we need to take her to the doctor now? how bad is 'not' bad). Ok...."
Last week Nadhrah had a slight accident. They were playing some games in class, she ran and fell. She hit the floor, and I don't know how, but her chin was koyak..
The doctor had to give her 3 stitches, but not before cleaning up the wound and giving her 4 injections to make the area numb. She didn't cry one bit throughout the whole procedure. The doctor was amazed. If fact the teacher said, she didn't cry after she fell, or while waiting to be fetched.
At home, she wouldn't let anyone else change her wound dressing, except me =D. While I was doing it, she said, "Nadhrah, takut sakit, tapi nadhrah tak nangis.. bila nadhrah rasa sakit nadhrah buat gini aje.. (she showed me how she clenched her fist and feet).
My girl, IS one tough cookie.
Korang nak tengok her stitches right?.. Here..
