Always, I read from other mummies blog about their kids got HFMD, yes, this time is my boy Fearles got HFMD!! I think after our kids go to kindy, it's really hard to prevent for not getting it huh?
Night before, before i knew he got HFMD, he is so crancky. We are out for dinner, he just don't want to eat, tell me the food "hot hot" i told him is not "hot". To him hot either is spicy or is hot, i try the food i told him it's not hot. He still refuse to eat, just eat two spoons then tell me he don't want it. I so mad, i scolded him!! He cried, i just ignore him, i thought he is like usual just show his tantrum. After we got back from dinner, i prepare them to bed. I don't know what make me think i want to check on Fearles mouth to see got any ulcers or not, it just come to my mind. I ask him to open the mouth for me to see, but i see nothing, i wondering why he keep said his mouth hot. After 2 hours sleeping, Fearles is crying and tossing and kicking (sometime he is like that when he sleep) like making a fuss. I talk to him nicely, comfort him, a while ok, the later, he make noise again, this go round and round..till pass midnight, i really cannot stand, i scolded him again and give him a "piak" on the butt ask him to sleep, don't kick and don't put up a fuss! I was fumming mad! Only after that he sleep through till morning.
Yesterday during noon time, teacher give me a call telling me that she suspect Fearles got HFMD, i was surprise and ask her why she said that. She said she saw Fearles not feeling well, and got running nose and got no appetite to eat. She check Fearles tongue, but so far didn't see got any ulcers yet. So i ask her, is the kindy got any kids had HFMD, she said ya, a kid but he was not at kindy yesterday, they just scare the air still got the virus. I called my SIL ask her to get some coconut juice for my boys to cool their body down (after reading Sasha's blog on her Jayden case), and told hub to monitor Fearles when he get back from work. At that time, i feel so so bad for scolding Fearles for not eating his dinner, and scold him for being notty, scold him so badly! He is just feeling unwell, and i cannot sense that he is not well, that's why he don't want to eat. :( I'm sorry Fearles!! Evening time, call hub, he said so far nothing and didn't see any red dots or ulcers, maybe just normal flu. I said ok, then i go to gym then i will go home. Reached home, hub said he already bring Fearles to clinic to see doctor, he said he saw a spot on the tongue, and some red dots on the legs. I want to see the ulcers in the mouth, but he refuse to open his mouth, refuse to take anti-biotic also. He request to have some bread so i give him some, and make sure he drink water. Whole night he just so "manja". Quickly i had my shower then i put him to sleep. Try to apply some ulcer cream on the ulcer but he refused, after some coaxing, he let me apply. After a while, he start scratch his body, leg and hand, itchy itchy, and he cried and making a fuss again. I have to help him to scratch softly till he sleep soundly. :( *hard to be a mum huh??*
Today i took one day leave to take care Fearles, Cruz i sent him to school, lucky he is quite independent. Being "kiasu" or "kiasi" mum, i don't trust the normal clinic i bring Fearles to see his Paed again this morning. His paed confirm Fearles is having HFMD, no medication given, just some pain killer and a gel for the ulcers. So far, he is ok, this morning had drink one bottle of milk, and eat some bun, i feeded him. After back from paed, he request to have some bun again, i passed to him, after few bites, he pass me back the bun, he being enjoy me feeding him, and he want to be pamper like a "boss". When i tear the bun piece by piece to feed him, he can tell me this......."not too big!!!"
Now i just hope Cruz don't get the virus!!
