Mummy was so cute- she called me up early in the morning when I was about to round with my team on our patients.
She was so loud through my phone that my friends overheard and laughed :)
Dear ol' mummy!
I'm having my wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow and I'm nervous. And reluctant to go, although the pain's been getting so bad til I cant sleep and the headaches from the referred area come almost daily now.
I told mum I wish I were home, so she could take care of me...
I know- Im an old brinjal already...Acting like a big baby.
Nothing beats the love and warmth from your mum and dad.
Mum would accompany me to the dentist at home when I was younger. (I hate visiting the dentist more than anything- I have a track record when I was much younger of screaming and running out from the dentist's chair :( .. )
She'd come inside the dentist's room with me, and wait with me.
She'd just be by my side... a comforting, reassuring, loving being.
And then, at home, she'd make me hot soup.
I'd whine about the pain for awhile- and I know, she doesn't mind it too much. WELL- I take that back. She'll tell me to stop whining, pinch my butt and my whines fall on deaf ears sometimes (lol!) But that also means shes listening! :)
She's just always there.
When we have fevers, she'd sponge us, check on us every so often, make us yummy chicken porridge and break her sleep cycle just to make sure we pop our Tylenols on time to beat the fever :)
I used to lie in bed all crunched up, curled in a ball from having severe menstrual cramps. I had always avoided taking pain pills- so I'd just lie there in agony, drenched in sweat for hours, just suffering, and withstanding the ongoing contraction knots within... til I fall asleep from fatigue.
And she'd make me my favourite hot ginger tea :) And the pain goes away in an hour or two :) - it's her remedy and it works damn well! :)
Mummy, I love you.
