Day 4: Injection Nuclear Medicine

Friday, August 7, 2009

Day 4 was a short trip to MSKCC for Nuclear Medicine to be injected in her. This is a 2 day exam, where an injection and a scan is taken. Princess Char needs to take orally Potassium Iodide or SSKI before Nuclear Medicine is injected in her. Not a sweet medicine I should add on. In case anyone mistaken, iodide has to be taken even in SGP where every drop of it is so bitter that she has to be forced down. She is getting braver each day.

Forgotten about the bitter medicine that she struggled with, she walked in cheerfully to MSKCC and everyone was commenting about how cute she was. A typical Asian in an American setting, when asked what was her name, how old she is, she was either not replying or whispering. Cyn Mommy taught her what she needs to do, and boy, did she impress us when she was asked again in the elevator!
"Mommy, see! I say very loud. Jase Jase also!"

The power of mother-child bond.

From the previous post, you would have seen the play room in MSKCC. After the injection, with Jase around, both of them were playing in the room for about 2hrs, before we head back home.

Taught with a lesson of responsibility, and they ace it, their reward was to be able to play with the mobile phones. Look @ the glee on their face. We are so glad we took up unlimited talktime with TMobile as they were talking to each other through the phone.



It was fasting night again for Charmaine and the last one because she will be taking out the needle from her "circle bone" on Day 5.

She is now in Day5, MSKCC, while Jase is watching the GI Joe cartoon series bought by Barby. Now he is hooked on it. =)

A weekend of MSKCC-less soon!
Whee~ and thanks to all!

Oh ya, any1 has any lobang over apartments in NY around E70s with 1 bedroom and a kitchenette?

Love, Charlene
