Sick Again :(

August was a terrible month for the kids, health wise. They’ve been sick on and off. XY has just recovered from fever (which luckily lasted for just a day). And CE had high fever due to ear infection and red throat.

His fever started on Monday night. His temperature was at 38+ºC. It’d go down after taking paracetamol or the suppository but when it came back, it’s very high. Yesterday it hit a high of 40.2ºC. Thank goodness it has subsided today.

He gave me a scare at 5+ yesterday evening. His finger nails and toe nails turned blue black. He was also shivering. His temperature was 39ºC. Luckily he was still acting normal... not drowsy. After half an hour or so, the nails turned pinkish again. Brought him to see the doctor at night. Doctor said his throat is very red. He prescribed antibiotics.

I’m still very tired and sleepy now as he woke up at 3am and didn’t really sleep after that. He’s crying and whining non-stop. His throat must be very sore as he doesn’t even want his milk. Whenever he swallow, can see that he’s in pain. I think he’s got ulcers too. Took the drop and medicine for sore throat from the doctor this morning. Hope it’ll relieve the pain fast. It’s really disheartening to see him like this. It’s the first time he’s having such bad sore throat. To the extend he doesn’t want to eat or drink anything. Will tomorrow be a better day?

oh... poor CE, aunty Sharine knows how bad mummy's feeling too. En En was easily to get sore throat too... discovered this maybe an share with you: with unpredictable weather nowadays, once I notice she refuse water, that's an alarm. Got to make sure she take plenty of water. Otherwise, sure will get fever and sore throat together very soon...

Maybe you can start them with some mult-vits and prebio to boost their immune system.

Chanel, tq for ur well wishes.

Thx for the tip, Sharine!

Wen, doc din mention anything abt HFM. How's Ian now? Hope he gets well soon.

Mich, yeah.. must give some supplements to boost their immune sys. I'm thinking of starting with Scott's Emulsion. Hope they'll like it. I personally hate it!
