The swell is gone

Today is YX's appointment to see the eye specialist after the last visit over here.

We are not sending him over because we don't think it is necessary anymore since the swell is gone! YAY! A good news indeed. Over the past few days, MIL have been brewing Chinese Herbal Tea for the whole family. It is actually a norm for MIL to brew Chinese Herbal Tea 3 times a week but this time, she gave YX a bigger portion. The elders believe it is 'heat' that trapped in YX's body which leads to the swell in his eye. Luckily he did not develop cough after taking a huge dose of the Chinese Herbal Tea *touch wood* ^_^

We did not even managed to drip any eyedrop into his eye because he was afraid he won't be able to see clearly after a single drop. We explained, but that does not work.

On that very 1st night, I waited till he slept and put a drop into his eye. Gosh! My roof and bedroom windows nearly crash. He screamed and got so angry while saying "I can't see, I can't see". LOL. This silly boy. Then, he insisted me to wipe away the eyedrop (and his tears) before he is willing to sleep again.

Since the swell has now gone, hopefully it will not pop up again in the future. Sometimes I wonder if he took too much of milk which makes his body heaty?

At the meantime, my toe is 1/2 healed. It turned blue black. :(


  1. A happy news indeed that the swell is gone and bet XY is happy as well.

    You know,as parent the most difficult time is when our youngs are sick, it is more tormenting than not having food or money,seriously speaking.

    take care now ya and God Bless

  2. Good to hear that his eye is ok. I guess he has a heaty body eh?

  3. that reminds me..i also must poe leong sui.. normally i dont.. just drink out with my kids..
    glad to hear your son is ok now..

  4. is the swell "bak jiam"?

  5. Good to hear that YX eyes are OK now. Btw, milk is heaty? I mean YX is already 4yo, thought heaty is only for baby who main food is milk and does not drink as much water as us.

    Oh yes, hope your toe fully healed soon.
