Sick

Yesterday after work, bring Fearles to see doctor. Since the paed is closed at 5pm so we went to emergency ward at Pantai Hospital. Fearles got his fever on sunday afternoon. And after pick him up from school yesterday,he still got fever and cough and vomit! So straight we head to Pantai to see doctor.

As usual the doctor check on the temperature and check the throat too. Suddenly the doctor ask me, when Fearles sleep did he snores and does he got sore throat very often? I said yes, sometimes.When he got sore throat than he will got the fever. And he told me "ya, his tonsils are big, need to remove it!" I was like "Huh? Tonsils? What is that?" So he try to explain to me, it give me a shock! Fearles need to undergo an operation to remove the tonsils??? And the doctor said not too worry, after he recover, and can bring him to see ENT. So i said i will seek for his paed for opinion too!

This is just too shock! So far non of the doctor told me about this, till yesterday!I'm a bit worried too. After all, two of them still naughty as usual. Running and climbing and screaming in the hospital! Cruz get the medicine for coughing. And yes, three of us are down with flu, & cough!! And Fearles got the fever & cough.*sigh*

Last night whole night i didn't sleep well, Fearles had been waking up a few times in a night, asking for water, than milk than vomit, than i have to clean up the mess! Thank god is Cruz being good, he sleep through the night. But mummy had a bad headache, tired and sleepy today!

Today i browse through the net and look for some info about tonsils. Now mummy have to equip with some medical knowledge too. My colleagues do advice me, give them vanila ice cream once in a while or now can cure tonsils! How amazing and it just by eating ice cream, and it must be VANILA ice cream, no other ice cream. And they advise me, don't let the baby cry too long or scream too much. Well, at least now i have some idea. And here i will put up some link too, just for my own info and those of u that would like to know more about tonsils, can just browse through.

I hope that Fearles will doing fine and don't need to go through any "cut" and i will get second opinion from their paed too.

Dont worry Annie. My hubs has tonsilitis prob too so he gets sore throat and fever often. It is not compulsory to remove the tonsils but the removal will relieve them from all the irritating illness. It's a simple surgery so even if Fearles must go through it, u dont worry ya. It's tough but you hang in there. Do seek 2nd opinion. Hope he recover fast.......

Jacss said...

Annie, by all means seek 2nd or 3rd opinion if that can convince & make u feel better!!
I only learnt abt this tonsil thing from 5xmom blog, seems that she has got few of his son's tonsils removed for the better. If u don't mind, u can send her email for advice, i'm sure she's nice to help.....
Still for me, i prefer not to put my boys under a knife.....scare hell of me man !!!
good luck & u take good care of yr self !!

Annie, I took out my child health book and look into tonsils page. I refer to this book when Sasha is sick. Is really a good guide.

Give nourishing liquids, such as soup, vanilla ice cream & milkshakes. Increase fluid intake is effective way to relieve tonsils - Health guide book

Use lavendar essential oil put 2 drops into the bath tub of water. Bath them and use cloth wipes to rub over her face and body. It can reduce fever and heat - Natural healers taught by my certified pratitioner

Boil soap using carrot, cabbage and pumpkin. Don't use a lot water, no salt and no spices. This is to boost up their immune system - Macrobiotics certified.

All the above methods I have tried when Sasha fever till 40C. Is worked. Try it coz no harm.

Tonsils are really painful. Hope Fearless is feeling better now.

Get a 2nd opinion. I used to have the same problem myself and occassionally still do. The GP that I went to advised me to remove it and I went to an ENT for 2nd opinion but he did not say it was a must. I decided not to and took some supplements like Vit C which helped tremendously. Hope Fearles does not have to go through it. See what his paed says and take care, ya.
