A week ago, when about to leave my sister's place, Jon started wetching. Continued for about 15 minutes on the way home. His lips was white when we got off the car. Panic we brought him to GP who checked his lungs...okay.
But advised us to bring Jon to KK.

After 45 minutes...still pale. He was tired after all the wetching. We got home to get his bag and took cab to A&E.

They brought him to examination room immediately and did x-ray of lungs and ECG. Inserted IV, gave him oxygen mask and checked his blood pressure. Was told to admit him for the night for observation.

by 1am, he was so tired he fell asleep...with his tape recorder by his side in low volume. Dr came said all reports okay. Perhaps while wetching struck a nerve that caused his blood pressure to drop.

The hospital didn't give him a crib like they used to when he was admitted. Nurse said he's too tall for it. Our little boy has grown up. So naturally, I was afraid he would push himself over the rail of the normal hospital bed.
Didn't sleep till around 5am and nodding off every now and then. Slept sitting up, leaning against the wall.

Thank God Jon slept right through...although he woke up at 4am when the nurse checked his BP. He asked for milk and went straight to sleep. by then oxygen mask was off.

Next day dr asked to stay for another day...saying observation is usually 24 hours. By 3pm they checked him said he's okay to go home. PTL! I don't think Jon would have liked having to spend another day in hospital.

Praise the Lord that it was nothing serious.
