Health Update

Thank you all for your get-well wishes for XY. She's much better now. Just a bit of mucus but still coughing, especially when napping and sleeping at night. But the inevitable happened. Didi got the same 'package' on Tuesday (2 days after jie jie).

For the past 2 nights, I didn't get a good night's sleep. Didi didn't sleep well. Woke up a few times crying. I think he's having stuffy nose so he can't breathe properly. I've applied Vicks during bedtime but maybe the effects have worn off. Luckily it didn't take long to put him back to sleep. Then a few hours later, XY started coughing non-stop. I've to go downstairs (with my eyes half closed) to pour a cup of slightly hot water for her to 'burn' her throat. Thank goodness it eased her cough and she went back to dreamland after that.

This morning, didi suddenly vomited (stained the sofa a bit). I think it's good coz it helps to get rid of the phlegms. He doesn't want to spit out the phlegms (or don't know how to). He also refused to sneeze when I asked him to. He used to be able to sneeze out the mucus. So the mucus and phlegms are swallowed back into the stomach. *eeeyuck!*

Oh no! Having sick kiddos is tough. And that phlegm can upset the tummy. I hope everyone feels better soon.
