1st day at work


Yesterday was my first day back @ work.  It went OK.  The team was conducting SIT for the second application we were working on before I left for my loong leave.

My mind was half focusing on the session and the other half on my babies at home.  Last month, my colleague’s 3-month old baby passed on.  I saw him yesterday and asked how he and his wife are coping with the loss.  When asked how it happened, he explained that the doctors discovered she had early pneumonia. It is said that pneumonia is common in babies.  That day she was at the nursery as any other normal day.  She choked and that’s how it started.  The nursery called them and the baby was immediately taken to the hospital.  By evening, she was gone.  I couldn’t imagine how they feel, especially the wife.  She must have been utterly devastated.  It’s heart-wrenching for me to even hear this loss.

After reading some articles on “pneumonia and babies”, I have the urge to take the babies to Dr. Lee, the well-known paediatrician at Sime Darby Medical Centre.  Seeing him puts me at ease unlike other doctors.

Here are some babies and pneumonia articles I found at:
