My name is Dowin and I am a full time SAHM.
I had countless jobs over the past 10 over years, but this job as a mother is the most challenging and satisfying job I ever get. I had a bridal make-up certificate, but never had the chance to go into it simply because I’m really bad with hairstyling. I’m not really good with handicraft work, but I’m glad people like the hair clips I made for their kids. Maintaining a small hair clips biz and taking care of my little girl is how I spent my time mostly. It is fulfilling I can say.
My hubby, Lancer
It is ironic to think about it, but we have known each other in Year 2000. We lost contact and only got together in Year 2009. He proposed in Year 2010 and I was surprised that he can planned out such a romantic proposal. Lancer is a man of few words. He is not the type who is good at giving you surprises or being romantic, but he tries his best. We got married in Year 2011 and it was then we started to hang on to each other, for better or for worse. Even though he seems to be those ‘wood wood’ type of guy, he isn’t so ‘wood’ towards his baby girl. He is such a loving father, as I sees them all over his face whenever he carries Hazel or talks to her. Although his attention on me is lesser, *Laughs* but he still very much dotes on me. A great hubby, daddy and lifetime partner.
We were blessed with Hazel in August 2011. She came into this world cute, pretty and with a very big temper. She was diagnosed with Shaken Baby Syndrome in November 2011. She had brain injuries and her blood vessels in her eyes were burst. Social workers and Police were involved but we could not charge the Nanny as we have no evidence. Hazel was in ICU for almost 2 weeks, and finally discharged in December 2011. She was diagnosed with West Syndrome (Infantile spasm) in January 2012. Hazel was being put on steriods for nearly six months. After weaning her off from steriods, her appetite dropped. Refused to eat solids, refused bottle and now we are feeding her via syringe. It has been long since I hear her crying of hunger. She doesn’t feel it so we have to be the clock and feed her timely. She has sensory issues hence the rejection of spoon and cup. Her spasm came back again one month later after we stopped her steriods. To date, she is still having spasm. Neurologist can’t see any indication of the spasm as the EEG report looks normal, so he can’t really advise the right treatment for her. Her vision is not good, which is prolly due to the spasm. Everything is okay from her recent eye checkup. She is not creeping, not crawling and not walking yet. She managed to learn how to sit up on her own, and will now come towards us wanting to be carried. Hazel is very active, cheerful, playful and naughty now. Despite her progression is slow, we will always be her cheerleaders cheering for her.
