Zarra's Incident

Dear Diary,

Something happened during our stay in Kedah last week. One night, we went out to see snake exhibition at the State Museum. After that, we wanted to go to McDonald’s City Plaza for dinner. We arrived at the destination, parked our car and crossed the street.

Everything was according to plan at first. There were 3 adults and 6 children. To cross the street, Hubby held Irfan, I held Imran’s and Zarra’s hands; while my brother handled his three girls. As we safely reached the other side of the road, my two nieces (Amirah and Athirah) ran ahead of everybody else. I was talking to (scolding more correctly) Imran and my attention were on him. Zarra broke free from my grip and ran towards her two cousins. Then, suddenly all of us heard a loud sound.

BANG!

And I saw Zarra lying on the ground (face up), crying. I rushed to her side and hugged her, consoling her at the same time. All the while I was thinking that she was hurting at the back of her head from the fall. When I looked at her face, blood was dripping from her forehead to her nose. Dah lemah lutut time ni! To my surprise, there was a wound on her forehead. It was quite deep. She had run directly into a steel bar of a big poster. The poster was a permanent kind, so you can imagine how strong the steel is. It was only a few steps away from me. As the bar is the same height as she is, Zarra did not notice it as her focus was to get to her cousins. She must have run very fast to produce that kind of wound.

Straightaway, we went to Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah. Tears started to well up in my eyes as I walked back to the car and rolled down my face on the way to the Emergency Room. We managed to stop the bleeding en route to the hospital. I kept asking her whether she feels nauseated, fainting or any head aches.

To cut the story short, she ended up with 1 jab on her arm (nak elak kancing gigi) and 1 stitch on her forehead. She’s one brave girl, going through all the procedures without any fuss. She cried of course but no big drama whatsoever. The stitch was done without any anesthesia, mind you.

Alhamdulillah semua dah elok. Dugaan ni kecik je kalau nak banding dugaan orang lain yang ada anak berpenyakit serius.

Ps: Hubby ejek sebab i menangis beria-ia. Anak dara sorang tu ja you!

aduuuhhh kesiannya zarra. Semestinya sangat sakit buat anak sekecik dia. harap kemudian hari tak tingal kesan parut.

p/s: semestinya mama nangis beria walaupun andainya anak dara lebih dari sorang kan!

Lady Lavender - Tengah suspens tunggu Isnin sebab hari tu nak gi klinik bukak jahitan Zarra. Tp rasanya luka tu akan meninggalkan kesan parut :(

ps: Mama nangis beria sebab well mothers memang mcm tu i guess. First experience tu...huhu.

Unaizah said...

Zakian - Laaaa, tak tau ka ceghita ni? Kakak lupa ceghita ek. Sori la. Tanya ja kat Nana (yg berada di tempat kejadian) or Kak Umey (yg berada jap kat wad kecemasan) or Mama (yg setia di sisi all the way thru).
