Millie had her TB jab today. Mummy posted about it in Japanese but I'll also update in English for the awesome English folk back at home. 🙏
I usually work full days on the weekends and her appointment had fallen on a Saturday (7th May, 2021). However, although I came home earlier than usual, I had to get a box sent off for my side business over at https://japanesekonbini.com - I also secretly didn't want to see my little princess scream after having 18 needles. 18 needles!? Yes! Japanese style is very different to what we're used to in the UK. Where we have just one needle in the UK, albeit a very thick needle, the Japanese TB jab (or BCG; Bacillus Calmette–Guérin), is spread into a square shape made up of 9 thin needles (3x3), and this is done twice. My wife posted a picture in her post which you can see here:
This will get worse over the next few months, so we'll be keeping a close eye on her. Luckily she didn't cry too much after having her jab. By the time she arrived home, she was sleeping before we knew it! All that crying tired her out big time 😍
Millie is always full of smiles. She smiles at the smallest things and laughs at the silliest things. It breaks my heart to see her cry, especially at the hospital after getting her jabs. Kid's injections in Japan are extremely plentiful; it seems like Millie has to go to the hospital almost every month! I'll be posting Millie's vaccinations online soon so that we have a nice record online where you guys can have a look, too! 🙂
Anyway, it's never nice to see your kids cry, so instead of thinking about Millie's dark time at the hospital, I tried to keep myself occupied by adding content and features to this website. I've added profile pages for Mummy and Daddy! I will add more content to them later with more dynamic data.
I'm also working on making live graph data from data tables; I can use spreadsheets or .csv files to make basic data and have them come up on the front-end as line graphs, pie charts etc. Here's a live example of her weight:
These will be awesome little additions which can be used on her personal info / statistics page. Anyway, I digress.
I'm happy she's full of smiles after such a hard day 😫 - Millie-chan, you're fast asleep right now. It is midnight and daddy is about to go to bed too. Thank you Arisa for being an amazing mother 💗🙏
