April Fool’s

at April 21st, 2014 by | permalinkpermalink | category Posted in Bohemian Rhapsody

The clock says 3:12 am. I’m in Banjarmasin and in 12 hours I’m going to chase a flight to Balikpapan, then will continue on a road trip to Samarinda.

I’ve been trying to sleep in the last 4 hours but failed. I’ve been having difficulty to sleep since I’m diagnosed with  cervical HNP aka pinched nerve disorder on my neck on 1 April. April Fool’s Day. Anything but fool and fun. It’s more pain. To the max.

After series of consultation with two neurosurgeons and countless family discussions, we opted out the surgery and voted for a combo of acupuncture treatment and physical therapy. The treatment helped in reducing the pain level so I decided to start travelling again to test the water.

Armed with a small pouch jammed with medications, I thought I’ll be ok. Sadly, I thought wrong :(   Even though I tried to avoid lifting heavy stuff but it seems anything heavier than a piece of paper is too much for my spine. Almost as soon as I landed on Kalimantan soil the pain came back. The very next day, I started taking the painkiller again.

That reality bites deep. It brought me to tears again that my current condition will not allow me one more thing that is me to me: travelling. (The first cry was when doctors said I can not lift and carry my little girls.)  At least for awhile. I hope it’s only for a short while. Lots of prayers are raised for that.

I took a painkiller pill an hour ago and still waiting for the pain to step aside and let me rest.

Working Mom’s Blessing

at November 11th, 2013 by | permalinkpermalink | category Posted in Bohemian Rhapsody

Sebenarnya banyak cerita yang mau ditulis, tapi Alhamdulillah malah sibuk sampai jari-jari cenut-cenut menulis dari yang wajib urusan kantor sampai urusan mimpi menerbitkan buku.

Sebenarnya sekarang pun lagi ada deadline menyelesaikan Kerangka Acuan untuk acara yang harus jalan 2 minggu lagi, tapi Alhamdulillah masih bisa curi waktu untuk pijat di jam makan siang.

Sebenarnya berat  2 malam tidak ngelonin anak karena tugas ke luar kota 3 hari, Alhamdulillah selama pergi setiap hari bisa komunikasi dengan Raissa dan Fiamma ditelpon. Biasanya selalu dimulai dengan pertanyaan Raissa “Mama pulang kapan?” dan lengkingan Fiamma sebagai background “Mamaaaa.. ini Adek”. Setiap dijawab “mama pulang Sabtu”, Raissa lanjut bertanya saat itu hari apa dan kemudian menghitung hari “Kamis, terus Jum’at, terus baru Sabtu ya. Jangan lama-lama ya Ma, Raissa kangen”.

Dan akhirnya ketika kumpul lagi badan remuk tambah pegal karena habis direbutin anak-anak, Alhamdulillah dipeluk dan diciumin sekujur badan berulang kali sambil dibisikin “Raissa kangen sekali sama mama”.

Akhirnya di hari pertama kembali masuk kantor, masih sempat curhat di blog. Sudah seharusnya saya bersyukur tanpa putus.

Oleh-oleh dari biztrip ke Gunung Kidul minggu lalu.
Garis Pantai Sundak dengan pasir putih yang bersih.

may each of you have a very good week :*

Bismillah
