I took one week leave of absence from school starting this week Tuesday because I will be busy with Rayyan’s medical appointments. Rayyan had his pre-admission medical check up on Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday morning he will have cardiac catheterization and required an overnight stay in the hospital and I will also be staying in the hospital with him. Some of nurses in the hospital ward remember Rayyan and surely they remember Rayyan mama who is a stubborn girl always by Rayyan side. The nurses had a hard time convincing me to take a rest away from Rayyan bed. But how can I rest when I keep on hearing the alarm beeping so frequently indicating his oxygen saturation level drop and my baby is in pain. I was an emotional wrecked when Rayyan was first admitted in intensive unit care. Guilt was one of the main factor. There are risks with this ‘catheterization’ thing from what the cardiologist explained about the procedure. But I will think of positive things and hope the next surgery will be booked soon for Rayyan sake. To make me calm and ready for the next day, I look at the bright things in our garden after the pre-admission check up.
How wonderful our first poppy bloom this week. This is our first time growing them and grown from seed too. I was afraid I got the sowing time wrong. I was surprised to see that the colour of this flower was crimson blood red. However, correct me if I am wrong, I find that the petal are very fragile and the flower bloom a short time only before it fall to the ground blown by the wind.
Columbine producing more flowers.
Polyanthus still showing colourful display at our patch. I am happy this year we have several colours of polyanthus blooming in our garden.
I did not know that poppy plant can grow so tall. This gerbera is being cramped by above shown poppy picture.
We have many corianders flowering in the garden now. The tallest coriander plant in our place is almost 5’feet tall now. I like to look at the coriander white dainty flower.
Kai lan (Chinese broccoli) flower and red onion flower in the background. It is still too early to sow kai lan seeds have to wait until next month. This is a kai lan plant that we forget to harvest because it was hiding between broccoli plant over winter.Ilhan will wonder why Rayyan and mama is not coming back home tomorrow. This favourite of his, peas is almost end of the season but I am glad Ilhan will have some pea snack tomorrow.
Some treat for Ilhan tomorrow~strawberry is ready to be pick. Not only from this strawberry plant but Alpine strawberries too for him.
Everything should be fine and go smoothly tomorrow ~ My hope.
