The boys were really looking forward to Christmas day as they know there are many presents waiting to be unwrapped.
About a week or so prior to Christmas, Lil B spotted a fever. Bummer! We brought him to the Paed. The latter noticed some redness on his throat, nevertheless was prescribed medication for viral flu and a bottle of Augmentin as back up should lil B’s fever does not come down by the third day.
It was horrid to care for a sick child, especially one whom is allergic to suppository. Lil B’s fever spiked to 41.3c. I lost count the number of times I had sponged him. His patience too ran thin and was becoming increasingly agitated. Poor boy.
We alternated between Nurofen and Progeseric every 4-5 hours. Despite that, Lil B’s fever was still pretty high >39c. So on Day 2 midnight I fed him Augmentin. That night, he slept better. Viral or Bacteria? I couldn’t care less.
I think by Day 4, lil B showed tremendous improvement. My hope is kor kor will be spared.
Unfortunately luck was not on our side.
A couple of days later, Ryan complained of stomachache during dinner. I brushed it off as yet another antic of his to skip food. Little did I expect, after finishing his food, he ran straight to the washroom and vomitted everything out.
At first i thought he’ll just sleep through it but he continued to vomit a few more times until hubs got back from work around 9pm. He just couldn’t hold anything in his stomach. He was showing symptoms of AIAO (all in all out). We decided to bring him to the doc. He was diagnosed with mild food poisoning (since there was no fever and no purging). Sigh…
The next 3 days my boy continue to lose more weight due to poor appetite. He even refused to drink his milk something which he never said no to. He’s now all skin and bone.
Good thing, both recovered prior Christmas day but we decided not to invite any other kids for fear they may still carry the germs and spread to the innocent. So it was just a simple gift unwrapping session for the kids, which they enjoyed to the max.
On the other hand, hubs and I went to Morganfield’s at Pavilion for a simple lunch date. Morganfield’s is famous for their pork ribs so how can we not order their signature Stick Bones Spare Ribs.
Hubs ordered their Spiked Tequila Chicken.
That pretty much sum up our Christmas celebration.
