Health is wealth

It's been a week now. I'm feelin much much better after resting at home and the siram-menyiram sessions + the limau nipis (lime) with a bit of kapur (to take away the pain) + buah pala (nutmeg) treatment (to tone down the swollen part). It's amazing what Malay traditional methods of healing (I'm not talking about bomohs/witchdoctors here) can do to you and it definitely beats being drowsy the whole day from popping in painkillers. When I had swollen feet during my pregnancy days, I applied the buah pala that was grated with some drops of water on the feet and the swelling subsided after a couple of days. They also say limau nipis with kapur can help to make trim down the bulge on your tummy. Maybe I should try that one day. heh.

Anyway I can move around without looking like a zombie and I can do simple household chores (read: dishwashing and floor-sweeping). I still can't bend down without flinching in pain or walk too fast. But Lela mentioned that every cloud has a silver lining and I chose to believe that. Thx, bud. :)

I am also grateful to have so many good people around me. Thx to the kanda for being there, my mum who's helping me to look after Aisyah, my dad and adek who's entertaining Aisyah *heheee* and my parents-in-law who helped a LOT in keeping the house spick and span. And also thx to the visitors *hugs to the smallpeeps!* and visitors-tak-jadi...mummyjam and lynna who came to the hospital 'lambat setapak' and found bed 20 empty and chegu+rida who wanted to visit me but I had to do my urot session that night. hehehe. I received many well-wishes through the sms *makes me feel popular...haha*. Thx hor. May He bless you all with good health for many years to come...insyaAllah.

Health is indeed wealth.

Wow, u broke your ribs?!?! That must be REALLY painful. I only had a hairline fracture in my hipbone some 30 years ago, and that hurt like hell. I cannot imagine what you had just gone thru. Hope you're taking good care of yourself. Have a speedy recovery!!

hi, found your blog through nadia (irfan's mummy)'s blog. was reading your entry on broken ribs and traditional remedies and i find the simply fascinating! okay i gotta admit that the "limau nipis + kapur = flat tummy" part got me hooked. i find your blog really interesting. hope you don't mind me adding a link to this blog on my blog.
