Unfortunately yes, HFMD finally strike!
Yvette had fever in the middle of the night yesterday and was constantly fussed over it. Rarely, she will fuss and complain when she was sick but this round was totally different.
We also never thought it will be HFMD when I finally brought her to see doc this morning.
She didn’t have rashes and even ulcers. Only red spots at the throat causing discomfort. (I wanted to find a picture on the net but alas I didn’t manage to find one the closest match.) I have no idea how and where she got it becuase the time between infection and the development of symptoms is about 3 – 7 days.
Doc said she might recovers faster than norm, but she was given 7 Days MC. She will going to miss her Art class (I have yet shared anything here about her art class), Chinese class and her normal school.
Lastly, I am grateful that I have such a brave child who never complains and fuss much over her conditions. She is sleeping soundly now.
With iPhone, it has made human connection faster. This morning, Stella highlighted to me everyone is falling sick when we were checking on each other over our health status.
Besides me, Yvette is another victim. She was down with fever again. The temperature was 39.1 in the early morning 5 am but it dropped to 36.5 before I left home this morning. (I have given her a dose of bufen.) This is the third round of fever attack within two months and that make me worry. She is not someone that has weak health. We have ensure she has balance diet and moreover she is a vegetable and fruit lover. With supplement and TMC in place,
I don’t quite understand how come the fever attack her again and again. The weather is so erratic and the virus everywhere. Well, I know I have been that sick and for this round, I believe I could be the culprit who passed the virus to her.
I’m really not in luck. Perhaps there is a little oversight on my end too. I didn’t bring Yvette straight to doctor when she had mild fever on Saturday. I wanted to bring Yvette to see the doctor on Sunday the consultation hours had changed. So I have to wait till Monday then.
The fever came and gone is really disturbing.
I wanted to bring her back to clinic on Tuesday again to follow up. Again, we missed the timing. Finally today my sister came because I can’t be on leave the whole week. She brought Yvette to the clinic and finally found out the root cause. Yvette was suffering from throat infection and was given antibiotics – Klacid Granules.
Looking at the antibiotic, it brings back memory when Yvette needs to take something similar when she was so much younger. The throat infection was eventually leaded to mild Bronchitis and she need to be nebulized. She was hospitalized for 3 days and these were the toughest period I have faced when she was a baby. The good news now was, her lung is not infected and I hope the antibiotic will heal her.
She is still kept at home. Sister came to look after her today and I will send her to SIL’s house tomorrow. Hubby will be flying back a day early and that relieve me to look for another care giver for Yvette. (I was off on Monday & Tuesday.)
Well, I can’t yell for more as I know I am really very blessed.
Now it is a concern.
Yvette had low grade fever last last Thursday and the fever is coming back to her on Sat. It just come and go. The unusual trend is, instead of the having high temperature in the night, her fever always come in the morning. As early as 6 plus and gone after giving her a dose of medication. She will also pass motion, and have a quick wash over her body. Then the fever disappear and never come back. It never come back to disturb us till the next morning. How strange?! (Anyone has encountered this before?)
I wanted to bring her to the GP yesterday but unfortunately, the timing of consultation hour has changed. So I waited till today then I brought her there.
The above medication are not solely for Yvette. Some are mine. I am having serious body ache and been coughing. In fact, my cough has never go away since March.
We just have a long nap since 1.30pm. I just woke up and Yvette was still sleeping. I got to cook now and wake her up. If not, she will not be able to sleep at night!
