Bad Luck

This month is a bad bad month for us...

1st off, Damien's stroller (Quinny Zapp) kena stolen...and i actually left 2 newly purchased GAP shorts inside the stroller...Total damages: $900+

2nd off, Damien contacted HFMD last tuesday...i was at work when his childcare called to say that he was running a temp...so i took 1/2 day urgent to fetch him from childcare and then bring him see his PD...his PD then diagnosed him with HFMD upon finding spots on his feet and ulcers at the back of his throat...his doc explained that the virus will incubate for 3-5days inside the body before showing any symptoms...upon hearing what the doc said, alarm started to go off in my mind...he was in close contact with Debbie over the long weekend...kissing her and all...oh no! oh no! Doc suggested that we quarantine Damien first and cross our fingers and pray that Debbie don't get it...so on that day, i shifted to my sis place with Damien, leaving Debbie in Yayuk care at home...Damien had every symptoms of a HFMD - fever, vomiting, ulcers, spots on hand and feet, diarrhoea...This is just the beginning of my nightmare.

3rd off, Debbie got it...yes yes! @ 4months, my bb gal had HFMD...she started showing symptoms on friday...and i shifted home with Damien right after doc diagnosis...no need to quarantine them liao as his kor kor is the source, doc explained...

Thank god, they are both manageable and co-operative during this crisis...hub was away most of the time so it was just me caring for the both of them...yes, they have problem swallowing stuff coz of the ulcers so i've been giving them cold stuff like ribena and glucolin to relief their sore throat and to keep them hydrated...Damien is almost 95% recovered...i'm going to bring him back to his PD tomorrow to get clearance so that he can go back to childcare...so now left only Debbie...Jia you, my brave bb...mummy loves you :) Like what Michelle said, i'll make a trip to waterloo st to pray pray after all this is over...
