I spent 3 hours at the hospital because it is the Malaysian King’s Birthday today, which means that none of the neighbourhood clinics are open. Just for the record, did you know that Malaysia is a country with one of the most public holidays in the world? Don’t people get sick on public holidays? Oh, how can I forget….Doctors need their holidays too.
I got an earful from the A&E Doctor for not coming in earlier, to which I meekly explained that this flu of mine has been ongoing for the last month and in fact, I’d just finished a course of antibiotics, proving that on the contrary, Doctors have actually been my new best friends. Used my Indian blood (yeah, I have some Indian blood…..and Portuguese, and Chinese) negotiating skills to talk her out of giving me an injection and it worked! I am absolutely terrified of needles. Needles and lizards. There. Now you know my weaknesses.
She gave me some steroid pills instead to be taken immediately (pray it doesn’t bloat me up because a pumpkin honestly needs no more puffing up). After finishing the nebuliser, she told me that if I wasn’t well by tomorrow evening, then I would have to be admitted.
No way am I being admitted into hospital!!! What would happen to Little Tee?
So I am praying hard. The last times I prayed this hard was when my Mother was struck by cancer and when Little Tee was hospitalised. Which is to confirm that I do pray everyday, just not this hard….
I am praying real hard now that my recovery will be swift. The Doctor checked my lungs again after the nebuliser and still didn’t feel good so I have to go back tomorrow for another dose, after which she will decide if I get admitted or not.
From being hospitalised for asthma in the UK for 10 days, rest be assured that being cooped up in hospital for asthma is no picnic despite the much needed R&R that I so crave. So much so that I actually snuck out of the hospital for a few hours and went shopping on Oxford Street. Thank you, May, for arranging the kidnap of this very, very naughty UCH patient.**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
