Still un-named so he's Baby Boy
Born 4th Nov 2004, 10.31 am.
3.25 kg, 48 cm (HUGE BABY!!)

Suppose to be a happy occasion but my sis having serious complications. She lost lots of blood and the doctor nearly cut off her uterus. She's bleeding real bad, she's under observation. If she's still bleeding heavily, they might remove her womb. My sis will be in ICU for a couple of days.

Baby boy has respiratory problems because the doctor had difficulties getting him out and he swallowed blood. He's in the Special Care Nursery where he's under observation. I managed to sneak in to look at him. (only parents and grandparents are allowed in) He's a big boy, can easily passed off as a month old baby. I managed to take a snapshot of him using my handphone (even though visitors have to technically switch of their handphone.) Baby will be fine and will be able to go to the normal nursery tomorrow, so I'm planning to take lots of photos :)

My sis has yet to see her son since in the delivery room. Pity her, she's so weak. She was telling me she was conscious but numb from the ribs down so that she can see the birth of her son. She was telling me that her blood was all over floor and the doctor kept yelling for more towels to contain the blood. She took 4 bags of blood in the OT, 2 in the afternoon and planning for another 2 tonight.

Judging from this situation, baby will be discharged way ahead from my sister. We are hoping that she will stop bleeding heavily soon. If not she has to remove her womb. In any case, she still has to undergo another surgery to remove her fibroid. The doctor showed me a photo of the fibroid taken when she was delivering. The fibroid is still in the body and the doctor used her hand as a gauge, placing it beside it. The fibroid is as big as her hand!!

I thought baby boy looked like my second nephew. My first sis commented that he looked like a Singh. Baby boy's father still in shock and can't believe that the baby is his because he doesn't looked like any of the parents.

I had a weird dream last night. In it, I was going round the supermarket (AMK NTUC 2) while nibbling on some dried chrysanthemun flowers. Didn't realise that I was going round and round for hours and even the workers at the supermarket got suspicious of me, and they ended up tailing me.

After paying up for the groceries, I met with secondary school friends at the coffeeshop. Hui Fen later gave me 4 digits (6745) and in the dream, I was considering buying 4D cos I was told that it was a sure shot win.

Wonder what the dream meant....

An artist in Sweden likes to kill animals (and we're not talking about just the ones we may eat, but domestic house pets), mutilates them and then takes photographs of them. All for a picture.

If you care about animals AT ALL.

There's an artist, Nathalia Edenmont, who kills cats, mice, doves, rabbits, and other animals, mutilates their bodies, and then takes their photographs. She's on exhibit, among other places, at the Wetterling Gallery in Sweden. She has taken the top halves of five white mice and made them into finger puppets. And this is called art. This is not only inhumane, but morally reprehensible.

There's an online petition going on if you're interested
