Sleepy Zara is still in bed and I can’t put myself back to slumperland so this post.
We are now at KKH Children’s Ward 85 awaiting for Doctor’s clearance for us to “check-out” of our one night stay in our private A1 Ward at KKH. I shall keep the details and lengthy story for another post coz writing it is not possible to share the whole episode typing on my mobile and with just a couple hours of sleep over the last 36 hours.
This chapter is on the things we did to keep the little one busy while confined in her metal baby cot bed at KKH Children’s ward.
Things To Do With Toddler (While Stuck In Bed) at A Hospital Ward
1. Meet New Friends
As there were no rooms available for us to admit into on Tuesday morning, we were put in the High Dependency Ward at Ward 65. Zara got a corner “unit” and immediately turned on her busybody self and got acquainted with her neighbor.
2. Attempt to wear a second pair of pants on their own
3. Eat hospital food
4. Let them take selfies
5. Discover they get big ass TV in their “hotel room”, while walking around in socks
6. Give them stickers, crayons and sketch book
7. Let them tie their own hair (even when it’s too short)
8. Make them clean up the mess
9. Let them watch TV before bed (and knock out soon after)
10. FaceTime with Cousin
And most importantly let them get plenty of sleep (and recover quickly so they can return home to play)
Thankful for Zara who behaved very well throughout our episode at the hospital. She was mostly cooperative except the few times when the nurses had to measure her pulse. She just doesn’t like the “massage” on her legs.
Can’t wait to be discharged and head home to catch more sleep in our own beds.
