I was sick and busy the past one week. After some sinful gluttony on durians, I developed sorethroat. And then I caught a bug from the kids and had runny nose (NOT H1N1!) and a log of phlegm since last Thursday.
On Monday, I started having bad stomach aches and I've been purging for 3 days. Everything I eat comes out the rear end 2 hours later in a watery form.
The kids still have drippy noses. Joseph's cough has officially hit the 6-month mark. I've seen 2 paediatricians. One says it's slight asthma and allergy to dust mites. She prescribed Zyrtec, Ventolin and Flixonase. The other said his lungs are perfectly clear and he's just having one bug after another (common with kids starting pre-school). I don't quite know what to do for him now.
Cough aside, he's growing well and now weighs 19kg. I find it very difficult to carry him now.
Joy-Anne started eating again 2 days ago, in tiny amounts. Eating means a piece of cheese, 2 spoonfuls of yoghurt, a piece of keropok....
I'm also busy putting together a childhood video montage for Reuben's wedding. Digging up old photos....I'm surprised how much the kids have grown in just 6 months!
I'm so glad Joy-Anne's hair has grown so much and she looks much more feminine now.
And lastly, I'm also busy because there's 2 hands less in the house with Edwin halfway around the world for a fortnight. Joseph tends to give me more nonsense when his father is not around. In fact, he told Joy-Anne, "papa cannot 'tiak' you because he is far far away...his hand cannot stretch so long!"
