Today is the first day of Dragon Year on the Chinese Lunar Calendar and I would like to send my blessings to the kind who helps and cares me. I didn't finish the saline until 11am and then the nurse stopped it for me in order to let me catch the 12am bus. I thought Mummy would prepare us a nice dinner, but to our surprise, she didn't sleep over night because my little brother got a terrible fever with spitting and diarrhea and went to the hospital. He might need several needles. God bless my little brother be fine soon so we won't feel so upset for him and then we could eat, sleep and enjoy the sunshine together.
我的梦想总是完美的，可现实却是那么的残酷：我高高兴兴地回家过春节，我想一家人快快乐乐地团聚在一起过上一个礼拜再回医院，可昨晚我高烧了，爸爸不得不去宁海车站提前买票。上午爸妈刚把小弟弟从医院打完针回来，就冒着大雪去宁海了，我无力地躺在床上盼望体温降下来，我真不想去医院。其实我回家那几天体温一直不稳定，医生是说最好别出院，可我一想到妈妈孤孤单单地在家，我也像其他病人一样自己要求出院，没料到在家才呆一个安稳夜。我感到无比的痛苦，明天妈妈怎么带小弟弟去医院呢？看到别人家欢天喜地地过春节，我的心情无比失落。[此贴由爵士乐在 2012-01-27 07:54 编辑过]
Dream is perfect while reality is cruel. I expected to have one-week happy Spring Festival reunion with my family but I had fever last night and Daddy had to buy the bus ticket in advance against the snow. I lay on the bed powerlessly hoping the fever back to normal in order not to go to the hospital. Doctor suggested me stay in the hospital but I refused in order to accompany with Mummy. Sadly, my fever stayed normal for just one single night. I was so admirable to see others happily gather together and I was worrying Mummy and little brother.
快到中午的时候我到医院了。今天可真冷，地上都是冰冻，房子上、树上都是白茫茫的一片，我和爸爸冒着刺骨的寒风来到医院。现在医院也冷冷清清的，有的整个病房也空着，我还是选了个靠窗的。忙了一整天，我和爸爸连午饭也顾不上吃，下午就开始打针了。[此贴由爵士乐在 2012-01-27 07:53 编辑过]
We arrived at the hospital at noon against the chilling wind and it was freezing cold outside with the ice on the floor as well as the frost on the roof and the trees. There were few patients in the hospital even with several empty rooms so I stayed beside the window again. We didn't have time to eat lunch and I had the needles in the afternoon.
All the Hematology Department does is to draw and test the blood. The nurse didn't get my blood until after 5 shots because of the coldness and the blood passes my vessels more and more slowly through the pipe on my arm and luckily it didn't break. The CT shadow shows my lung has a little bit infection thus my fever is unstable. I had little cough without any spit so they gave me some antiphlogistic needles to control. Mummy called me that my little brother would finish the saline at 6pm and possibly won't go to hospital the next day. He turned normal but was strengthless and didn't have appetite.
I accidently washed away the bloody herpes scab this morning and it shows the fresh tender pink skin and Daddy said it looks nicer than before but I could not scratch it any more to avoid scar. I received a bag of books from a girl for me to kill the boring time. Book is the best friend of Human Being which gives us the forward power and send away the sorrows.
Mummy told me that my little brother turned normal recently without spitting, diarrhea, or fever but still weak. He couldn't even stand, didn't want to eat food, and had no smile. Doctor suggested him to have some salty porridge or special milk power. Mummy didn't sleep for nights because of the sickness of both of us. How sad!
I read a title Immortal Tree and was too curious to open the page at 85 and found out it was Banyan which has rich branches and leaves as well as long life span. Why? Because it has countless air-roots to support the nutrition and water for the trunk. Some of the roots are hanging in the air absorbing the moisture and some of them are dangling to the underground sucking the water and nutrition in the soil. I would never know the knowledge without reading books. Thus I should read more to enrich myself!
I did the bone-piecing this morning and was praised by the doctor because of my good temper. They treated me as the adult and gave me a doll for rewards to encourage me to be stronger. I am so appreciated for those doctors and nurses who are amiable as my parents. Once I felt uncomfortable they would always come visiting and I was willing to report my situation to them too. Like yesterday I had the diarrhea and they gave the right medicine without delay. Perhaps the saline is too cold and I still have the diarrhea today so they checked my blood and told me not to eat something oily, cold, sweet, sour or eggy. Also, they gave me some nutrition pills but I didn't have any appetite and was strengthless. What I want to do is to lie on the bed and sleep.
